Is the iPhone 15 Pro too hot to handle? According to early users, it seems that way. Numerous reports have surfaced about the phone overheating while using apps or charging. Although these reports are based on personal experiences and should be taken with a grain of salt, they have become common enough to warrant attention.

Instances of overheating started popping up soon after the iPhone 15 Pro was released. Many of these reports can be found on social media platforms like Twitter and Reddit, while others have been covered by reputable sources like the Wall Street Journal. In fact, the publication even interviewed customers who have encountered this issue firsthand. Apple was contacted by one customer who was informed that excessive heat may occur during the iPhone setup process. However, even days later, the customer claims that his iPhone 15 Pro Max is still experiencing overheating problems. This problem has also been faced by professionals in the tech industry.

However, we currently lack sufficient evidence to definitively prove that this is indeed a problem. Additionally, we are unable to authenticate the anecdotal experiences of other individuals. It is also challenging to identify any specific factors that may be contributing to the overheating issue. Ming Chi-Quo, a reputable Apple analyst, suggests that the problem lies with the iPhone 15 Pro's titanium frame. While titanium is an excellent insulator, the frame is only 1mm thick. Furthermore, the phone's internal frame, now made of aluminum instead of stainless steel, should, in theory, dissipate more heat from the internal components.

At How-To Geek, our writers frequently conduct tests on new smartphones, and based on our experience, it is not uncommon for a phone to become excessively hot during the initial setup. Both the iOS and Android operating systems have demanding setup processes that can span several hours or even an entire day. The duration of the setup largely depends on the volume of data (apps, contacts, etc.) associated with the user's previous device. Using or charging the phone during setup can generate additional heat, which may explain why some customers receive overheating notifications while charging or playing games.

We have carried out a thorough review of the iPhone 15 Pro and found no signs of overheating or any other flaws. Notably, reputed publications such as CNET, Ars Technica, and Mashable have also not mentioned overheating issues in their reviews of this phone. Hence, it seems that any overheating problem is not widespread. It could potentially be linked to a manufacturing defect or specific user actions. Rest assured, we will monitor this situation closely and provide updates if we encounter any new information.
