Apple’s new iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max are literally a show-stopper.
Users who bought fancy new smartphones say they get unbearably hot after just a few minutes of use.

“The natural titanium iPhone 15 Pro gets so hot that it becomes difficult to hold,” he wrote. “Additionally, it gets hot after his FaceTime call of just 2 minutes or when scrolling through Reels for 8-10 minutes.
