Despite a lot of hype and excitement over the latest iPhone to be released, it was overshadowed by reported issues of overheating all over the world, something that the tech giants have put down to apps people were downloading.

The American-based company have claimed that the likes of Instagram and Uber were examples of apps that people had downloaded and forced iPhones to overheat, perhaps due to the storage and power needed to run them.

No matter what was causing the issue, when purchasing a product that can cost up to £999 or £41.62 a month on the Apple website, people don’t expect it to be overheating and making customers worry about what was wrong with their device, so something was needed to fix this issue.

This update could not have come quickly enough for people around the world because it was claimed that numerous devices were overheating and even reaching temperatures of around 100 degrees Fahrenheit just after a few minutes of being used.

While this temperature doesn’t for very long and reportedly cools down rather quickly, it’s not how such a new and expensive iPhone should be functioning, so downloading this new iOS update is essential.

According to Apple this update ‘provides important bug fixes and security updates, and addresses an issue that may cause iPhone to run warmer than expected.’
