Hot new phone

More than a ‘hot’ new phone – It can double up as a hand warmer too!

Apple said on Saturday 30th September 2023 that it will issue a software update that would address customer complaints about the latest iPhone 15 models, released just over a week ago, running hot.

The new iPhones were running hot because of a combination of bugs in iOS 17, bugs in apps, and a temporary set-up period that requires extra processing and therefore heat generation, Apple confirmed.

Statement from Apple

‘We have identified a few conditions which can cause iPhone to run warmer than expected. The device may feel warmer during the first few days after setting up or restoring the device because of increased background activity.’

We have also found a bug in iOS 17 that is impacting some users and will be addressed in a software update. Another issue involves some recent updates to third-party apps that are causing them to overload the system. We’re working with these app developers on fixes that are in the process of rolling out.
