Apple has revealed to MacRumors and Forbes that an iOS 17 is set to be released soon to address a bug that it claims may contribute to the overheating issues of users of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.
iPhone 15 Pro Overheating Issue
According to Apple, the overheating issues are due to recent updates to third-party apps that overloaded the system. Among the apps that were mentioned include Instagram, Uber, and Asphalt 9: Legends. Instagram has reportedly introduced a fix in an update to the app introduced last Wednesday.
“We have identified a few conditions which can cause iPhone to run warmer than expected. The device may feel warmer during the first few days after setting up or restoring the device because of increased background activity. We have also found a bug in iOS 17 that is impacting some users and will be addressed in a software update. Another issue involves some recent updates to third-party apps that are causing them to overload the system. We’re working with these app developers on fixes that are in the process of rolling out.”
The reports mention that Apple won’t reduce the performance of the A17 Pro chip. Apple also clarified that the issue will not impact the long-term performance of the devices. Moreover, it said that the titanium frame and aluminum substructure do not contribute to the issue.
The fix is said to be part of iOS 17.1, which is now in beta and expected to be released in late October. It is also speculated that the fix could arrive in a smaller update.
