iOS 17.1 update: Screen burn-in issues

Screen burn-in issues have been observed on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max models on numerous platforms, including Apple’s forums and Reddit, weeks after the phones were released. While it was reported that the iPhone 15 models could be affected by a hardware issue creating the supposed burn-in issue, the issue will be fixed in the upcoming software update.

iOS 17.1 update: privacy issue

Apple’s upcoming iOS 17.1 update will also address a privacy issue identified by security researchers that affects the Significant Locations option. According to MacRumors, iOS 17 defaults location-related settings when pairing an Apple Watch or transferring data from Apple’s wearable. This problem has supposedly been rectified, as have difficulties with iOS 17’s default keyboard.

Apple resolved a fault that plagued the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max earlier this month, causing the phone to overheat. At the time, the company recognised that there was a glitch that might cause the iPhone 15 Pro models, which are equipped with Apple’s latest A17 Pro CPU, to overheat, and that some apps, such as Uber and Instagram, which were not optimised for the new chip and iOS 17, could exacerbate the problem. The newly published iOS 17.0.3 version is said to have fixed these issues.
