During the weekend we told you that the problem of overheating on some iPhone 15 Pro They were due to a bug in iOS 17. Fortunately, Apple did not take long to resolve it. The company launched iOS 17.0.3, which comes precisely to solve this problem, among other bugs reported in recent days. If you are one of the people who has experienced a considerable increase in temperature on your new terminal, update as soon as possible.
“This update provides important bug fixes, security updates, and resolves an issue that could cause the iPhone to run hotter than expected.”
The first reports regarding the overheating of the iPhone 15 Pro began to emerge the previous week; just days after the device’s global launch. Nevertheless, not all terminals suffered the problem.
Obviously, since it is a device that has just arrived on the market, alarmism and exaggerated information were immediate. For example, Ming-Chi Kuo, who was once one of the most reliable sources on future Apple products, commented that the iPhone 15 Pro could have a design flaw. However, Apple denied it.
On September 30, Apple acknowledged, through an interview with Forbes, that some iPhone 15 Pro were having an overheating problem. Of course, they mentioned that it was not a design error in the hardware, but an iOS 17 bug. The solution, of course, was already underway.
“We have identified some conditions that may cause the iPhone to run hotter than expected. The device may feel warmer during the first few days after setting up, or when restoring due to increased background activity. We have also found a bug in iOS 17 that affects some users and will be solved with a software update,” they expressed.
“Increased background activity” turned out to be the main culprit for some owners. By temporarily disabling this function in various applications, such as Instagram or Twitter, the overheating of the iPhone 15 Pro was solved.
In fact, Apple itself warned that apps like Instagram, Uber and Asphalt 9: Legends They were consuming an abnormal amount of resources. “Another issue has to do with some recent third-party app updates that are causing system overload. We are working with these developers on solutions that are in the process of being implemented.”
Now that iOS 17.0.3 is available, it will be interesting to carry out some tests to verify that, indeed, the overheating of the iPhone 15 Pro is now behind us. We do not doubt that they will also be carried out tests of performance to ensure that Apple did not limit the potential of its chip to solve it. In the talk with Forbesthey hinted that the A17 Pro will not be compromised.
