Hey, fellow iPhone users, in this blog post, I want to talk to you about the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max that why they are overheating and what could you do in order to make your iPhone not Overheating.
So the iPhone 15 series phones are Apple’s latest flagship phones, and they have amazing features, like a 6.7-inch OLED display, a powerful A15 Bionic chip, a 12-megapixel triple-camera system, and 5G connectivity.
Some people have complained that these phones overheat when they are in use or charging. I will share some solutions that I personally use to prevent this problem. These tips may not eliminate the overheating completely, but they will definitely make a difference. You will notice that your phone stays cooler than before.
10 Solutions to Fix or Prevent Overheating on iPhone 15 Pro
So, what can you do if your iPhone 15 Pro or Pro Max overheats, or feels too hot? Well, here are some tips that I will share with you:
1) Turn off your phone and let it cool down:
This is the easiest and most effective way to fix overheating. You can also take off your phone case, if you have one, to help it cool down faster.
Don’t put your phone on a hot surface, like a metal table or a sunny window sill, as this can make it hotter. Put it on a cool, flat surface, like a wooden desk or a cloth-covered couch.
2) Close or delete any apps that you don’t need
To close an app, swipe up from the bottom of the screen and pause slightly in the middle of the screen. Then swipe up on the app’s preview to close it.
To delete an app, touch and hold the app icon until it jiggles. Then tap the X in the upper-left corner of the app. You can also check which apps use the most battery by going to Settings > Battery > Battery Usage.
3) Turn Off Voice Over:
Many users say that when they turned off the voice over feature, their iPhone 15 Pro or Pro Max are not overheating since then. Voice over is a feature that speaks items on the screen, and it can be very useful for people with visual impairments.
However, it can also consume a lot of CPU and battery power, which can lead to overheating. To turn off voice over, go to Settings > Accessibility > Voice Over and toggle it off.
4) Turn on Low Power Mode:
This is a feature that reduces your phone’s power use by turning off or limiting some features, like background app refresh, automatic downloads, mail fetch, and some visual effects.
To turn on Low Power Mode, go to Settings > Battery > Low Power Mode and toggle it on. You can also ask Siri to turn on Low Power Mode for you. Low Power Mode will turn off automatically when your phone reaches 80% charge.
5) Update your phone’s software:
Sometimes, overheating can be caused by a software bug or glitch that affects your phone’s performance or power management. To fix this, you should update your phone’s software to the latest version.
This can also improve your phone’s performance and security. To update your phone’s software, go to Settings > General > Software Update and tap Download and Install. You can also connect your phone to your computer and use iTunes to update your phone’s software.
6) Reset your phone’s settings.
If none of the above tips work, you can try resetting your phone’s settings. This won’t erase your data, but it will restore your phone’s settings to their default values. This can sometimes fix overheating issues caused by bad or wrong settings.
To reset your phone’s settings, go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings. You will need to enter your passcode and confirm your action.
7) Use a compatible charger and cable:
When charging your phone, you should use a compatible charger and cable that meet Apple’s standards. Using a non-Apple or uncertified charger or cable can damage your phone’s battery, or cause it to overheat.
You can check if your charger or cable is certified by looking for the “Made for iPhone” logo on the packaging or the product. You can also buy Apple-certified chargers and cables from Apple’s website or authorized resellers.
8) Avoid using your phone in extreme temperatures:
As I mentioned earlier, you should use your phone in normal temperatures between 32 and 95 degrees Fahrenheit.
If you need to use your phone in very hot or cold conditions, limit your use to essential tasks, and avoid using features that use a lot of power or resources. You should also avoid leaving your phone in a car, or in direct sunlight, for a long time.
9) Keep your phone away from other heat sources.
You should also keep your phone away from other things that can make it hot, like radiators, heaters, ovens, microwaves, or other electronic devices.
These can give off heat that can affect your phone’s temperature and performance. You should also avoid putting your phone on top of or near other devices that are charging, as this can make heat too.
10) Clean your phone charging port and vents.
Another tip to prevent overheating is to clean your phone’s charging port and vents regularly. Dust, dirt, lint, or debris can build up in these areas and block the airflow or the charging connection. This can make your phone overheat or charge slowly.
To clean your phone’s charging port and vents, you can use a soft, dry, lint-free cloth, or a soft-bristled brush. You can also use compressed air to blow away any dust or dirt. But, don’t use any liquids, solvents, or abrasives, as these can damage your phone.
