According to many reports and tests, the phone temperature can exceed 100 degrees Fahrenheit, especially during charging, and sometimes go as high as 116 degrees Fahrenheit. This heat level may make the phone uncomfortable to hold.
These overheating issues also include existing issues resulting from Apple’s choice to use a titanium case for the 15 Pro. These concerns include changes in fingerprint color, greater resistance to deep digging, and the potential for more brittleness.
Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst specializing in Apple products, said that the 15 overheating result could be “the result of trade-offs made in the machine cooling design to reduce weight.” He talked about Apple dropping the impurity metal into the titanium body.
Kuo also dismissed the idea that overheating could cause problems with Apple’s new TSMC-made 3-nanometer chips.
The extent of the overheating problem remains unclear, and it is unclear whether Apple plans to fix the problem. Kuo’s blog noted that if Apple does not take action to fix the issue, this could impact sales of the device.
This comes at a time when Apple is dealing with declining sales figures. Kuo said Apple might consider pushing out software updates as a solution, but their benefits would be limited unless the company chooses to throttle the phone’s performance especially when the device is released, which Apple has noted.
Famous YouTuber About iPhone 15 Pro Design
Famous YouTuber Zack Nelson, creator of the JerryRigEverything channel and known for testing the stability of mobile phones, expressed concerns about the quality of the 15 Pro’s design.
In one of your movies, Nelson holds a phone and puts pressure on the back of the phone with his thumb, causing the back glass to instantly break. Nelson said that he has been testing such phones for 11 years, especially iPhones, which are known for their durability, and most of them survived without breaking.
The unscientific nature of the test made it unclear whether the damage was caused by a defect in the phone. Additionally, the new phone experienced software problems during installation and other complaints about poor performance were received.
Apple Faces Criticism Beyond iPhone 15 Pros
The iPhone 15 Pros, are not the only Apple product that has been subject to criticism. Many reviews have recently expressed dissatisfaction with Apple’s new “FineWoven” faux suede accessories (including case protectors and wallets), citing poor quality.
These FineWoven products are produced by Apple along with the new iPhones and are positioned as an alternative to leather products, which the company has stopped producing in order to reduce costs. But reviews show that these FineWoven products scratch easily after a few days of continuous use, sometimes even showing signs of wear on the packaging.
Apple, is apparently aware of these concerns and has issued a memo instructing sales staff to inform customers that FineWoven covers “may be used in unusual ways and fibers may change over time with normal use.” This material is subject to compression such that it wears out. “
Reports and tests show that the iPhone 15 Pro can reach temperatures above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, especially while charging, resulting in poor performance. These overheating issues further increase existing concerns regarding the use of titanium housing.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said the construction of the market could cause problems, but the extent is not yet clear. Apple’s response, perhaps through a software update, is important because it could reverse the decline in sales.
Popular YouTuber Zack Nelson’s lengthy test and critique of Apple’s “FineWoven” accessory adds to the company’s latest competition.
