Since the release of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Maxboth phones have received negative publicity due to the overheating problems faced by users worldwide. While both the Pro and Pro Max models use Apple’s first 3nm A17 Pro chipsetEven this powerful processor fails to prevent overheating during intensive games or simple daily tasks. This is all because Apple has not implemented proper heat dissipation solutions on its flagship models even in 2023. But come along iPhone 16A new rumor has surfaced that the Cupertino tech giant is working on one ‘graphene thermal system’ to control overheating problems.
Although Apple blames poorly optimized software for causing the overheating and released a software fix, a simple software update can do little without a good cooling solution. So this new rumored cooling system could come in handy.
Previously, there were rumors that Apple is exploring how to add liquid vapor cooling to their future iPhones. A new rumor from X user (formerly Twitter) Kosutami suggests that the company is now actively working on the graphene thermal system for the iPhone 16 series to overcome overheating issues and will also include a metal shell around the battery for this purpose.
It’s not unusual for smartphone brands to use graphene films to dissipate heat, with Google also joining the bandwagon with its latest Pixel 8 and 8 Pro models. But it only helped a little with the overheating, so the metal casing around the iPhone 16’s battery might be true.
While we will have to wait another year to see if Apple uses this thermal graphene system on the iPhone 16 series, given the continued criticism of the iPhone 15 Pro series for overheating, Apple will certainly look for ways to solve this problem .
