An update to the iPhone operating system known as iOS 16.4.1 was released by Apple earlier this month. The update addresses a number of problems, including those with Siri and others, and includes a remedy for a couple of vulnerabilities that are currently being exploited. However, after downloading the update, a significant number of iPhone owners have reported that their devices have become unstable and overheated.

The issue is particularly prevalent on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models, despite the fact that reports from users of other iPhones have also appeared. Additionally, iPhone users who charge their smartphones wirelessly are impacted by the issue. It’s possible that the problem will be fixed in the upcoming update from the company.

However, until that time comes, the following are some precautions that iPhone owners can take to prevent their devices from overheating –

1) Choose to charge using a wired option. Even though it might not eliminate the problem of the device overheating entirely, it will without a doubt cut down on the amount of heat produced.

2) Take off the case of your iPhone whenever it is charging: It is recommended that consumers who are impacted by this issue remove the rear case from their iPhone before charging it to ensure that the heat created by the device is properly dissipated.

3) Try to avoid charging your device at night.

As was just noted, the significant iPhone flaw that was discussed earlier has been addressed in iOS 16.4.1. iPhones were susceptible to a vulnerability known as IOSurfaceAccelerator, which made it possible for applications to run arbitrary code with kernel privileges. In a similar vein, the WebKit vulnerability might result in specially prepared web content that could potentially lead to the execution of arbitrary code. Apple has stated that malicious actors are exploiting these security weaknesses in order to cause harm to the Safari browser that is found on iPhones.
