The new iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max are overheating, and Apple has acknowledged this problem. According to Bloomberg, the problem is software in nature, and to fix it you won’t have to slow down the processor.
The overheating problem was noticed by iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max users immediately after starting to use the new smartphones. It appears in the first days of use and in some third-party applications that have not been optimized for new devices.
Apple has confirmed that this is a software issue and is not related to the titanium frame or the A17 Pro chip. In addition, the company claims that the new body materials of the smartphones perform their heat dissipation functions more effectively than previous versions.
To solve this problem, Apple has already begun collaborating with third-party app developers to optimize their experience on the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max. Some of these developers have already released updates with fixes.
A fix for the overheating issue is expected to be rolled out in an upcoming iOS update. Users should keep an eye out for notifications about available updates, as an exact release date has not yet been announced.
The overheating issue became noticeable after a gaming test on the popular game Genshin Impact, where the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max showed less stable performance compared to some Android competitors. But given Apple's prompt response, users can expect a quick solution to this problem.
