Apple pushes fix for overheating iPhones

Today's iOS 17.0.3 update is for 'warmer than expected' handsets.

On Saturday, Apple acknowledged that some new iPhone 15s are overheating.

Today, just four days later, the company rushed out a fix.

iOS 17.0.3 is now available for download with a bug fix that prevents iPhones from running “warmer than expected,” as the company put it. The update also fixes other bugs and addresses security vulnerabilities.

It might be a good idea to install it.

[Steve Jobs’ dad found marijuana in his son’s car.] ‘What’s this?’ he asked. That’s marijuana. That was the only real fight I ever got in with my dad. He wanted me to promise that I’d never use pot again, but I wouldn’t promise.
