Shortly after the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max smartphones went on sale, their new owners began complaining about the devices overheating. In some cases, smartphones have even been reported to automatically turn off due to excessive heat. Apple confirmed in late September that new iPhones could overheat due to bugs in iOS 17 and promised to fix everything with the next operating system update. As it turns out, in addition to iOS 17 itself, there are also some third-party applications, notably InstagramUber and others also overloaded the A17 Pro processor in these smartphones, leading to cooling problems.

Today Apple released iOS 17.0.3 (Build 21A360), which is intended to resolve overheating issues. The company is also working with third-party app developers to optimize the performance of their products in the new operating environment of the new iPhone hardware. Speaking to MacRumors, an Apple representative confirmed that device owners will find that the overheating issue has been resolved after updating the operating system. He also added that overheating is not associated with the titanium body of the same iPhone 15 Pro.

Previously, industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that the overheating of new smartphones could be due to “Apple has had to make some compromises when it comes to the cooling systems of new devices“due to the titanium casing and even suggested that the only solution may be to slow down the processor of smartphones.” Apple responded that it had no plans to change the performance of the A17 Pro chip, adding that the The device’s titanium body actually dissipates heat more efficiently than the steel body of previous iPhone models.

In addition to iOS 17.0.3, the company released an update to the iPadOS 17.0.3 operating system. New versions of operating systems also fix a vulnerability that could potentially give attackers privileged access. The company stated that it is aware of cases where this vulnerability is used in iOS versions released before iOS 16.6.
