There was definitely something wrong: Before iOS 17.0.3, the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max unfortunately tended to heat up a little too hot. As promised by Apple, the latest iOS update works wonders.
Every new iPhone launch has its annoying flaw, and the iPhone 15s didn’t miss that tradition! In this case, the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max may experience excessive heating while charging or after a few minutes of use. Apple confirmed that something was indeed wrong and, more importantly, that an iOS update was in the pipeline to fix the problem.
The iPhone 15 Pro no longer heats up
What’s said has been done: iOS 17.0.3 will go live this week. It remained to be seen whether this update, which simultaneously fixes two significant security vulnerabilities, served its purpose. Are iPhone 15 Pros still overheating? According to ZDNet, everything is back to normal.
The site published photos of an iPhone 15 Pro before and after iOS 17.0.3, taken with a thermal imaging camera. Before the update, the smartphone flirted with 100 degrees Fahrenheit (around 37 degrees Celsius) and exceeded this during fast wired charging; After installing the new iOS version we run between 29 and 35 °C.
