Next year, Apple will use a new heatsink to make the iPhone more effective at dissipating heat.
The iPhone 15 launch certainly didn’t go as Apple would have liked. Things had gone wrong as the giant expected. The internet has been filled with dilapidated iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max devices – and some of them have arrived to waiting customers in this form.
In addition, there has been a lot of talk about smartphones overheating. Although I had the opportunity to use the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro Max before the premiere – regardless of the device configuration, I did not encounter any problems. But it seems I was lucky, because the thousands of negative comments and Apple’s official statement on the matter were not a coincidence. Fortunately, the problems were resolved by a software update. iOS 17.0.3 has finally solved the problem.
However, next year, Apple also wants to focus on the hardware solution. And modify the design of the device slightly to avoid possible problems.
Graphene heat sink. Its purpose is to allow Apple to more effectively ensure that iPhones do not overheat
According to information provided by @KosutamiSan on X (formerly Twitter), Apple will be using a completely new heatsink in its smartphones in next year’s iPhone models. This time, the company will focus on the graphene heatsink and the metal housing of the battery. In this way, the giant from Cupertino will finally solve the problem. It is worth noting that graphene has ten times better thermal conductivity than copper.
A step in the right direction. Nobody likes burning smartphones
Smartphones are small gadgets that cannot use any sophisticated cooling designs, as is the case with computers. In an age where we give them more and more challenging tasks, it is natural that their work culture over time leaves a lot to be desired. It’s no coincidence that gaming smartphones have external fans that allow the device to cool while gaming.
Aside from the previously mentioned bug, the iPhone works very well and… honestly? My iPhone 15 Pro “boiled” only once – during the first configuration, when many tasks were happening in the background. However, this is the norm and is unavoidable. Although its culture remains at the highest level during daily work and you don’t have to worry about the heat, when someone wants to turn their iPhone into a gaming console, things look a little different. Anyone who has decided to play Resident Evil Village on a smartphone knows that they will not have to wait long for the device to be covered with a wave of heat. Therefore, any improvements are more than welcome!
