Apple has attributed the elevated temperature of iPhones to software bugs and app-related complications.
The tech giant is in the process of enhancing iOS 17 to rectify an issue causing iPhone 15 devices to exhibit higher temperatures than anticipated. Furthermore, the company is actively collaborating with app developers to address any issues that may lead to phone overheating. While Apple has yet to provide a specific timeline for the software patch release, it is actively engaged in resolving app-related problems.
Instagram, under the ownership of Meta Platforms, has already updated its application to prevent overheating on the latest iPhones running iOS 17. In contrast, Uber and Asphalt 9 are currently in the process of updating their respective apps, as confirmed by Apple.
The extent of the temperature issue across all iPhone 15 devices and potential effects on older device models due to software glitches and app issues remains uncertain.
