The iPhone 15 series was launched recently and it was a sight worth witnessing. In India, innumerable Apple fanatics arrived in Delhi and Mumbai to purchase the iPhone 15 from the official Apple stores. Some even stood in line outside the stores from the previous day so they could get their hands on the gadgets first. However, despite the excitement and fanfare surrounding the iPhone 15 series launch, all seems not very well with the gadgets.
Despite its improvements and new features, people have been complaining that the iPhone 15 overheats easily. Many have taken to social media platforms to complain about the overheating issues on the very first day of using the phone and its variants. Here’s a look at some of the posts gaining attention on social media:

Currently charging the iPhone 15 Pro Max in my car, while simultaneously using it to write an email on 5G.
I can feel the heat through the back of my andar leather case.
Apple needs to roll out an update to throttle the cpu asap!
This is bad. pic.twitter.com/IjH5iDR857

The heating problem on iPhone 15 Pro Max is getting out of hand. Could be due to performance cores working overtime
Unable to understand how Apple is able to heatup a phone with just 27W charging speeds

Fixin' to fry an egg on my new iPhone 15 Pro Max griddle phone. It's really heating up as it's loading all the apps and finishing setup! (No sign of fingerprints yet on the natural titanium finish, which I like a lot more than I thought I would.) #iPhone15ProMax

Phones can overheat for a variety of reasons. What is important is to address these issues so the gadget doesn’t become a safety hazard. According to a report by Digitaltrends, new smartphones tend to heat up during the initial setup and the first 24 hours of use. This is the time when users back up data and media, download applications, click pictures and videos, and even play games to see how the phone functions. That’s a lot of work for any smartphone to do.
In order to prevent your phone from overheating, you can try enabling auto-brightness, disabling Bluetooth, and close apps that use navigation services. You can also close unused apps running in the background and avoid exposing your phone to extreme temperatures.
Hope this helps!
