Apple partially fixes iPhone 15 overheating problem

Apple has released iOS 17.0.3, which partially fixes the issue that caused the new iPhone 15 to overheat. In addition, the company also fixed several security flaws, writes Ars Technica.

Apple claims that they cannot completely solve the problem of smartphones overheating because apps like Instagram and Uber also cause it.

Instagram, for example, causes overheating on iOS 17, even on the iPhone 14 Pro. The companies are now working together to release updates that will fix this problem completely.

In iOS 17.0.3, the company fixed the CVE-2023-42824 kernel flaw, which, according to the company, was actively exploited by attackers, even though it required local access to the device. Another vulnerability was found in WebRTC related to a vulnerability in the libvpx video codec library.
