Apple has attributed the overheating of the new iPhone 15 to updates to apps like Instagram and a flaw in its operating system.

Some consumers have complained that the smartphones are becoming too hot to handle since the most recent model went on sale in September.

According to Apple, there was a glitch when the phone updated to iOS 17.

However, it also asserted that modifications made to outside programs are “causing them to overload the system.”

Because of the amount of processing power needed and the device working overtime, iPhone owners have become accustomed to their handsets getting hotter during initial setup or when they are backing up. However, these concerns with the iPhone 15 have gotten worse.

Consumers bemoaned on social media about how hot the new phones were.

According to Apple, “after setting up or restoring the device, the device may feel warmer due to increased background activity” in the initial few days.

“We have identified a few conditions which can cause iPhones to run warmer than expected,” the company stated.

This contains a flaw in iOS 17, the most recent software release from Apple that works with its most recent models.

According to the statement, “another issue involves some recent updates to third-party apps that are causing them to overload the system,” and it is currently coordinating with app developers to implement repairs.

Apple lists the video game Asphalt 9, Instagram, and Uber as some of the applications that are to responsible for the issue.

The problem with Instagram’s app was previously resolved last week.

The next bug fix for iOS 17 won’t compromise performance to cool the iPhone.

Apple emphasized that the new titanium casing for the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, which replaces the stainless steel used on previous handsets, had nothing to do with the phones getting warmer.

Samsung also denied rumors that the new USB-C port, which enabled Samsung to abide by an order from European authorities, had anything to do with the overheating issue.

According to Apple, there is no risk of injury or safety, and the issue won’t affect the phone’s long-term functionality.
