Some iPhone 15 Users Claim Phone Gets Too Hot To Hold
Lucky folks who have already gotten their hands on the new iPhone 15 series may be excited to use their new devices. But some aren’t having the best time, as they claim that their phones are overheating.
Some even alleged that it was so bad that they could feel the heat through their phone case.
While Apple hasn’t addressed the complaints, they apparently already have a guide to deal with this matter.

Understandably concerned, users have taken to the Apple discussion forum to share their experiences.
This user claimed that their phone was “heating up even when they’re (I’m) not using it”.
Others similarly chimed in, sharing that their phones overheat during a call and even to the point where they can’t hold the device for too long.
Many noted that the rate of overheating is comparably faster than previous Apple models.
Not an unusual occurrence
Since literally hot phones don’t seem to be a new issue, Apple already has a support page offering tips for users.
Firstly, they listed some activities which may cause the device to start heating up:
During the first setupRestoring from backupCharging the device wirelesslyUsing graphics- or processor-intensive apps, games, or features (including augmented-reality apps)Streaming high-quality videos
They assured users that the device’s temperature should return to normal thereafter. As long as there’s no temperature warning, the phone should be safe for use.
Regardless, the problem doesn’t seem to be very common among all iPhone 15 users. Some offered solutions in the discussion forum while others said that the issue will pass after the initial setup.
