Industry experts believe that Apple's stagnation will not only affect sales, but even the iOS ecosystem.
iPhone 15 Pro hot into "dragon fruit"? Apple admitted: there are vulnerabilities!
According to the feedback of some foreign netizens in the Apple community, the temperature of the fuselage is too high when making calls, taking photos, charging and other operations, and even many netizens said that in the case of the remaining memory space is large enough, even if the mobile phone is not used, it will heat up.
A up owner of station B tried the game "Genshin" with the iPhone 15 Pro, and in a room temperature environment of 26.5 degrees Celsius, after 30 minutes of gameplay, the temperature of the fuselage has soared to 49 degrees Celsius, and there are visible frame drops.
There are also user tests that found that the iPhone 15 has a temperature of up to 46.7 degrees Celsius when gaming. Another up owner said that after recording a ten-minute vlog with the iPhone 15 Pro Max, the temperature of the fuselage reached 51 degrees Celsius.
Some foreign netizens posted in the Reddit community, saying that after 5 minutes of talking, the back temperature of the iPhone 15 Pro Max rose to 108 °F, equivalent to 42 °C, and in subsequent tests, it reached 116.5 °F, equivalent to 47 °C.
On Weibo, related issues have also sparked many discussions.
There is also user feedback that his iPhone 15 Pro model mobile phone will also heat up in his pocket, and the temperature is so high that it is almost scalded, so that he has no choice but to take it out. Netizens also made emojis, ridiculing that the iPhone 15 series can cook things.
After a survey by foreign technology media 9to5Mac, more than fifty percent of users think that their newly bought iPhone 15 generates too much heat.
Apple admits to a vulnerability!
According to a report by CCTV Finance citing Reuters local time on October 1, Apple said on September 30 that it had found some problems that may cause the iPhone 15 series of mobile phones to run too hot, including vulnerabilities in the iOS17 operating system. Apple says it will fix these issues in an upcoming software update. Apple also said that the heating problem is not a security risk and will not affect the long-term performance of the phone.
In addition, Apple said that the iPhone 15 series of phones also overheated when running some third-party apps, and the company is working with the developers of these apps to fix it.
As of the latest close of U.S. stocks, Apple's stock price is $171.21, and the latest market value is $2.7 trillion.
What is the cause of fever?
On September 27, Tianfeng International analyst Guo Ming issued an article to interpret the current problem of Apple's iPhone 15 Pro mobile phone overheating. He said that the overheating problem of the iPhone 15 Pro series has nothing to do with TSMC's 3nm process, and is likely to make the weight lighter, so the design of the heat dissipation system is compromised, the heat dissipation area of the new machine is small, and the use of titanium alloy affects the heat dissipation effect.
Kuo expects Apple to fix this problem by updating the system, but the improvement may be limited unless processor performance is reduced. If Apple doesn't properly address this issue, it could be detrimental to shipments of the iPhone 15 Pro series product cycle.
Huawei and Apple face off PK
According to the observation of 21 reporters, with the release of new Huawei mobile phone products, Huawei and Apple positive PK has also officially opened. In fact, before Huawei quietly opened the sale of Mate 60 Pro, many institutions predicted that it would affect Apple.
Market research institute Jibang Consulting pointed out that due to Huawei's strong return may have an impact on Apple's overall iPhone sales, Apple's iPhone sales this year will be between 220 million and 225 million units, a year-on-year decline of 5%.
However, Apple's status may still not be completely replaced. The overall pattern of the mobile phone market shows that at present, Apple still dominates the high-end market. From the perspective of China's high-end mobile phone market share in the first half of 2023, IDC data shows that Apple's market share is as high as 67.0%; Huawei ranked second with a market share of 15.6%.
The latest report from UBS Securities pointed out that due to the risk of Huawei's new machines, Apple's iPhone 15 series new machine shipments were lowered from 80 million to 90 million units to 78 million units.
According to China Economic Network, Huaqiangbei's first-hand receiving merchants said that the iPhone 15 standard version has almost no premium ability, and they will not receive the goods. The premium market of the iPhone 15 Pro series is about 300-900 yuan, which is not as good as in previous years, and it is not as good as Huawei Mate60 Pro and Huawei Mate X5.
