Today, Apple has made iOS 17.0.3 (and iPadOS 17.0.3) available to the general public over the air (OTA) to update eligible iPhone and iPad devices. This update is geared towards the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max devices and has been released to resolve the recent reports of overheating that have been casting a shadow over the most recent Apple launches.
Apple originally commented on the bug which, in combination with usage of certain apps such as Instagram and Uber, would cause the devices to overheat due to overloading the new A17 Pro chips within the device, and the fix is already baked in to the latest iOS 17.1 beta that is available.
Apple's latest crop of iPhones hasn't escaped unscathed however, with this issue alongside recent reports of the NFC chip within the device failing after charging in BMW cars, and reports that Apple had compromised on cooling while driving the weight of the device down.
Apple has also released iPadOS 17.0.3 today with general bug fixes for the device. This version of iOS and iPadOS is compatible with the same crop of devices as the initial release of iOS 17 and iPadOS 17, which were made available on 18th September, which is as follows:
