Apple has rolled out iOS 17.0.3, which addresses a bug causing overheating in its latest iPhone 15 models. The release, made on Wednesday, aims to resolve this issue that had been reported by users.

According to the software's change log, the update offers essential bug fixes, security enhancements, and specifically tackles the problem of iPhones running hotter than expected.

Apple had confirmed reports over the weekend that some of its new iPhones were prone to heating up. The company attributed this problem to a combination of factors, including misconfigured apps, iOS bugs, and an initial setup phase that required additional processing and generated excess heat.

The latest update, released on Wednesday, primarily targets the issues within iOS, the operating system of the iPhone. App developers are also releasing updates with fixes for their respective applications.

Apple clarified that the overheating issue was not connected to the new titanium and aluminum frame design on the higher-end Pro models. Additionally, it wasn't related to the USB-C charging port on the new iPhones either.

Apple's official statement mentioned that all iPhones might experience increased warmth during certain scenarios, such as during restoration from a backup, wireless charging, usage of graphics-intensive apps or games, or streaming high-quality video content. Apple assured users that iPhones are safe to use unless they display a specific temperature warning.
