Despite the iPhone 15 Pro series receiving acclaim for its impressive features, a rising number of early adopters have encountered a common issue: excessive overheating. Complaints about elevated device temperatures have been mounting since the release of these new iPhones on September 22. Despite the incorporation of a titanium casing and a more potent A17 Pro chip in the Pro models, they appear to exhibit an unusual propensity to become uncomfortably warm to the touch.
One user on an official Apple support forum lamented, “I just received the iPhone 15 Pro today, and it’s so hot that I can’t hold it for an extended period.” A similar sentiment was echoed by another user who reported, “I also acquired the iPhone 15 Pro, and it overheats during phone calls that last 8-10 minutes.”
Social media platforms have seen iPhone 15 Pro owners resorting to temperature scanners to quantify the extent of the heating problem. Videos shared on these platforms depict the devices reaching temperatures ranging from 102 to as high as 107 degrees Fahrenheit.
Engineer Mohit Verma shared on Twitter, “The naturally titanium iPhone 15 Pro becomes extremely hot, to the point where holding it becomes uncomfortable. Moreover, it heats up after just a 2-minute FaceTime call or when scrolling through reels for 8-10 minutes.”
Despite users’ attempts to mitigate the issue by closing apps and background services, the iPhones persist in running warm. One Reddit user expressed frustration, stating, “Photos and videos make it super hot, charging makes it super hot, using it for YouTube and social media is also warm. Why is the heat management so inefficient, Apple?”
As of now, Apple has not issued an official response addressing the overheating complaints. However, the increasing number of reports and media attention may soon prompt the tech giant to acknowledge and address the issue. Users eagerly anticipate a resolution to ensure their new iPhone 15 Pro models operate optimally without uncomfortable overheating.
