The manufacturer of smartphones announced in a statement that it will patch a bug that caused the iOS 17 operating system, which the iPhone 15 devices operate on, to become hotter than it should be.
Additionally, Apple added that it is collaborating with developers to modify apps that "overload the system," resulting in the phones overheating.
Apple to fix iPhone 15 bug blamed for phones overheating
A software update was distributed to impacted iPhones last week, coinciding with the announcement of the repair.
"This update contains important security updates, and bug fixes, and resolves an issue that may cause the iPhone to run warmer than expected," according to the update notification.
Earlier last week, Meta Platforms' Instagram made changes to its social media app to stop it from overheating the new iPhone running iOS 17.
Apple stated that upgrades for other applications, such as the video game Asphalt 9 and Uber, are still being rolled out.
It's yet unknown whether the iPhone 15 line as a whole is operating hotter than anticipated and if the app and bug problems also affect smartphones from previous generations.
Apple did not respond to a request for comment from CBS MoneyWatch right away.
