iPhone 15 Pro Overheating Issues Resolved in Latest iOS Update
Apple has released an iOS update to resolve overheating problems affecting some iPhone 15 Pro models, which first emerged shortly after the September release of the iPhone 15 lineup.
According to Apple, iPhone 15 Pro models may overheat unexpectedly during some use cases but this has been fixed. An iOS update now available improves temperature management during processor-intensive tasks. Overheating is not a safety issue, but it may cause performance to decrease under extreme conditions.
Update Focuses on Intensive Usage
A majority of overheating issues appear when using processor-intensive apps and features such as gaming, augmented reality, and advanced camera functions on the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max. According to some users, their iPhone 15 Pro becomes uncomfortably hot and displays temperature warnings.
Overheating Mostly Impacts iPhone 15 Pro Models
However, Apple did not go into technical details but said iOS 17.0.2 improved the way the iPhone 15 Pro dissipates heat and manages performance. A16 Bionic’s 4-nanometer manufacturing process is the main focus of the update, which allows for more transistors in a smaller space, resulting in higher heat output.
iOS 17.0.2 Update Now Available, Recommended for All Users
All iPhone 15 Pro users are advised to install iOS 17.0.2 over-the-air by going to Settings > General > Software Update on their iPhone.
Several users reported overheating issues shortly after the iPhone 15 launch, leading Apple to release a relatively quick bug-fixing update. As a result of this update, iPhone 15 Pro users should enjoy improved performance stability when using processor-intensive apps and features. Apple is closely monitoring and working to resolve any problems that might affect their latest flagship iPhones.
