Apple’s iOS 17.1 Will Fix The iPhone 15 Pro’s Image Retention Bug
If you’ve looked at your iPhone 15 Pro or iPhone 15 Pro Max lately and wondered why it continues to show older images as if it is suffering from screen burn-in, you aren’t alone.
It seems that some people have also had the same problem and the issue is widespread enough for Apple to have a fix on the way.
That fix will come as part of the iOS 17.1 update that will arrive before the end of the month. The iOS 17.1 update is now in developer beta and includes a number of fixes, but this screen image retention issue is a notable one because it’s something many had assumed was a hardware problem.
9to5Mac reports that the update will fix an issue that Apple says “may cause display image persistence” on iPhones.
Another fix will include one that deals with issues causing the iPhone’s keyboard to become unresponsive during use, while it will also bring new features including AirDrop transfers that work over the internet when one device moves out of range. Improvements to Music will also allow people to favorite songs, albums, and playlists.
Apple hasn’t confirmed when the iOS 17.1 update will arrive but it’s thought that it will land next week at some point, so not that long to wait now. The first Release Candidate beta is already in the hands of developers.
