The iPhone 15 arrived last September and we quickly witnessed reports that the smartphones were overheating. So that this problem does not happen again next year, Apple is preparing a new cooling system for the iPhone 16.
The information is being advanced on the social network X and points out that the North American technology company is studying a new refrigeration solution based on graphene. The objective is just one: to improve the heat dissipation of your next tops of the range.
iPhone 16 may arrive with new graphene-based cooling solution
It is important to note that the current iPhone 15 has a copper heatsink. Although it is a common approach on the market, the overheating problems recorded in these devices have made Apple question its effectiveness.
In this sense, the American company is now studying other options and the alternative could be a new system based on graphene. This material offers superior heat dissipation compared to copper, which should achieve Apple’s intended goals.
In addition to this change, Apple must change the construction of the batteries used in the iPhone 16. At least in the Pro models, a new battery with a metal shell must be used with the same purpose of improving heat dissipation.
Combined with these changes, the next generation of iOS smartphones should bring a considerable improvement in the dissipation of heat generated by their components. Changes that aim to make you forget everything that happened in the first weeks of the iPhone 15.
Reports of the iPhone 15 overheating multiplied and many assumed that this was due to a hardware issue. However, Apple went public to acknowledge the problem and clarify that it could be resolved with a simple software update.
This promise ended up being fulfilled with the availability of iOS 17.0.3. Still, this is a scenario that Apple will want to eradicate from its next devices and the solution could even involve the hardware changes already mentioned.
