Users of Apple's latest iPhone 15 Pro have raised concerns about the temperature of their devices, citing instances where the smartphones heated up to over 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

Several images depicting temperature checks have surfaced online, including one instance of a silver iPhone 15 Pro recording a temperature of 108 degrees. The owner claimed that this extreme heat was experienced after just a five-minute phone call.

One Reddit user posted an image of their silver iPhone 15 Pro while checking the device's temperature and reported, "It gets so hot that I'm afraid to touch it, and it hurts my leg in my pocket." They added that despite trying various troubleshooting steps, the issue persisted.

A Chinese tech blogger known as Geekerwan observed that the iPhone 15 Pro reached exceptionally high temperatures in just 30 minutes of use, reaching up to 48°C (118°F). Geekerwan speculated that the heat might be emanating from the A17 Pro chip, responsible for AI capabilities and battery management.

Experts in the industry have weighed in, suggesting that the overheating issue may be linked to design choices made to reduce the device's weight, compromising the thermal system.

However, other users attributed the heat to certain applications, with users pointing fingers at Meta groups of apps.

 Another suggested the same thing.

But then, it is important to note that iPhones often experience increased warmth within the first 24 hours after initial setup. Overheating can also occur if the smartphone is charged using a USB-C cable and power adapter that are not compatible. Apple recommends using a 20W USB-C power adapter or a higher-wattage one as the standard.

However, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo offered an alternative perspective. Kuo, who reports on Apple's supply chain, believes that the overheating is not related to the chip but rather stems from design choices made for the new iPhones.

Kuo mentioned in a recent blog post that if Apple fails to address the overheating problem, it could impact sales at a time when the company is already dealing with sales challenges. He also suggested that a potential solution could involve a software update, though this might affect the smartphone's performance.
