Is that a hot iPhone 15 in your pocket, or... ?
Every year a new scare story appears soon after Apple introduces new iPhone models. It's a regular occurrence, and the stories almost always disappear once the initial furor dies down.

This year's scare story is no different — it's not even new — though enterprise IT may want to add some third-party applications to its ban list for managed devices in response.

iPhone feels the heat? The iPhone 15, we're told, has a problem with heat. Literally tens of people who claimed to have purchased one of the new devices raced to share overheating issues they claimed were driving the phone's temperature sky high.

How to send animated reactions on FaceTime with iOS 17
Apple's latest iOS 17 update has introduced FaceTime Reactions, which are animated effects that pop up on your screen during a video chat. These reactions are like the ones commonly used in Messages with other iPhone users, such as hearts, fireworks and thumbs-ups. These can sometimes serve as expressive substitutes for written responses or, in the case of FaceTime, punctuate your body language with 3D animations.

However, during video calls, these animated effects are a little different. You can activate them manually or using hand gestures. For example, you can create a heart shape with your hands and little red hearts will start erupting from the middle. Or you can toss up dual metal signs to get a laser light show. These 3D animated reactions will also show up in macOS Sonoma and iPadOS 17.

If you haven't yet explored this feature, this step-by-step guide will walk you through how to make the most of FaceTime Reactions in your calls.

Apple is working on a fix for iPhone 15 overheating issues
Apple has acknowledged what many buyers have noticed over the past week — the iPhone 15 and 15 Pro can get uncomfortably hot. The company said that background activity, an iOS 17 bug and third-party apps are causing the problem, Forbes reported. It added that a software update and fixes from developers are coming soon.

"We have identified a few conditions which can cause iPhone to run warmer than expected. The device may feel warmer during the first few days after setting up or restoring [it] because of increased background activity," a spokesperson said in a statement. "We have also found a bug in iOS 17 that is impacting some users and will be addressed in a software update. Another issue involves some recent updates to third-party apps that are causing them to overload the system. We're working with these app developers on fixes that are in the process of rolling out."

The apps in question include Uber, Instagram and Asphalt 9. Meta has already released a fix for Instagram, so it's worth checking that you have the latest version. The overheating issue may be confined to certain situations and combinations of apps, as not every user has seen it (Engadget didn't in its review). 

One thing definitely not causing the problem is the titanium frame, as Apple told MacRumors that the design actually provides better heat dissipation than previous models with stainless steel frames. The company also said that the issue was not directly relate

Addigy promises a fix for Apple devices stuck on OSUpdateScan
Enterprise admins handling fleets of Macs take note: there's a new security management tool from Apple device management firm Addigy.

The MDM Watchdog Utility monitors the MDM framework on devices and automatically forces software patches to be installed if they're not already in place. This is designed to help solve a specific problem in which some (not all) managed Macs do not properly install Apple's Rapid Security Response updates.

When security isn't In today's fast-moving threat environment, Apple has introduced Rapid Security Response (RSR) as a key front line against new threats. The defense is intended to be distributed and installed across Apple's platforms as swiftly as possible once new threats are identified. The idea is that by expediting distribution and making installation a quicker process, it will be easier to maintain security across Mac fleets. That's important as the scale of Apple deployments grows and enterprises move to support employee choice.
