Image credit : Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max has just been released and it has a lot of wow factors but many customers have shared their concerns regarding the overheating issue of the flagship device. The overheating of the device has led to fast battery drain. Some users have complained about the performance slowdown as well.  According to the reports, iPhone 15 Pro Max is overheating due to its first 3nm phone’s A17 Pro chip, manufactured by TSMC. Interestingly, the A17 Pro chip was aimed at improving the overall performance of the device but it is now the potential source behind the heating and battery backup problems.

The device was hottest near the chip area even after normal use.  Furthermore, several tech enthusiasts including Youtuber Vadim Yuryev said that Apple raised the wattage of the A17 Pro chip to achieve the desired benchmark score, but this increase in power consumption may result in lower battery life and also lead to overheating.  Also read : iPhone 15 : How to use Find My feature to locate your friends up to 60 meters away Reviewer TechTablets corroborated the underlying issue as he said that the iPhone 15 Pro Max A17 Pro throttling is really concerning.
