It is worth noting that although the overall material cost of the iPhone 15 series is high and the internal configuration is luxurious, according to consumer feedback, this generation of iPhone 15 series models still have screen burn-in and other issues. In addition to screen burn-in, the iPhone 15 series models also experience network lag and severe heating. However, it seems that the heating issue has been resolved through later system updates.
