After the release of the iPhone 15 Pro series, many early users reported overheating problems. Apple later confirmed that the problem was caused by a software bug in iOS 17, which affected some phone owners. The company quickly resolved the issue with the release of iOS 17.0.3 and never acknowledged that hardware played a role in the overheating. Fast forward to the present, and it now looks like Apple is planning to make hardware changes to the iPhone 16 that will make the 2024 handset less likely to overheat.
According to Apple Prototype Collector Kosutami will be making two changes to the next round of Apple iPhones. on X, formerly on Twitter, they pay attention,Apple is actively working on the graphene thermal system of the iPhone 16 series to solve the pre-existing heating problem. And the Pro series battery will also change to metal shell for the same reason.
The iPhone 15 series features a copper heatsink. Graphene provides four times better thermal conductivity than copper and also reduces weight.
Although Apple has said that the overheating issue with the iPhone 15 Pro was not hardware related, it’s reassuring to know that a hardware upgrade that could have a positive impact on the temperatures of future iPhones could be on the horizon.
Before Apple addressed the overheating issues of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, some speculated that titanium (instead of stainless steel) might be the cause. For example, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggested that titanium could affect thermal efficiency. Kuo also mentioned that although a software fix will eventually be released (which it was), Apple will also reduce the performance of the A17 Pro chip (found on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max) to resolve the issue. Could.
Following the release of iOS 17.0.3 bug fixes, Apple confirmed that it has not made any changes to the chipset speed of the iPhone 15 Pro.
The iPhone 16 series is likely to be announced and released next September. Rumors about the upcoming series seem promising.
