Apple has released an iOS 17 system update that includes a solution to prevent the iPhone 15 series from becoming uncomfortably hot. The iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max would be particularly affected.

Apple has started rolling out iOS 17.0.3, just days after identifying overheating issues in its latest iPhones. As the release number indicates, iOS 17.0.3 is a minor update. It therefore does not contain any significant new functions.

Shortly after the launch of the new iPhone 15 models Customers started complaining that the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max were getting too hotand that in some cases they were even shut down due to heat issues.

The iOS update is intended to fix heating problems

Last week, the Cupertino company blamed a software bug and other problems with popular apps like Instagram and Uber for causing recently released iPhone 15 models to heat up, sparking complaints that they became too hot to touch. However, Several users reported that the problem persisted even after uninstalling these apps.

For his part, Ming-Chi Kuo, analyst at Apple, confirmed this Overheating issues have been linked to the iPhone 15 Pro’s titanium body and that a software fix would not make it possible to speed up the operation of the A17 Pro chip, which is not the case, at least according to Apple. Other users also cited the A17 Pro as the culprit, particularly because of its 3nm TSMC engraving.

If you have an iPhone 15 Pro, note that your smartphone can be set to automatically update to the latest version of iOS while charging when inactive.
