Apple said that the heating problem on the iPhone 15 Pro series is caused by software bugs, so an update will be rolled out.
The overheating issue on iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max has affected many owners. When this issue came to light, an expert explained the possible reasons behind it.
Industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claimed that the design and material of both phones are the culprit, not the powerful mobile chipset A17 Pro. While the 3-nm chipset does not generate much heat compared to larger chipsets, it still needs a heat dissipation system.
Since the design favored lighter weight and the material isn’t a good heat conductor, the A17 Pro will heat up when you use the iPhone 15 Pro intensively for long periods.
According to a report, Apple claimed that the overheating issue is a software bug, not a hardware design flaw. The company highlighting the following causes behind the issue:
- Increased background activity during the first few days after setting up or restoring the device.
- An undisclosed software bug in iOS 17.
- Recent updates from third-party apps that cause them to overload in the system.
The Cupertino-based company will roll out a software update to address this heating problem on iPhone 15 Pro line. Unsurprisingly, the lesser kins, iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, are not affected by the same issue. Both of these are using the A16 Bionic chipset and are still encased in aluminum, instead of titanium.
iPhone 15 Pro’s starting price is ₱70,990 while iPhone 15 Pro Max is at ₱84,990.
