Days ago, reports about iPhone 15 experiencing permanent NFC chip damages when charged on wireless charging pads of BMW started surfacing. However, many other iPhone customers claim that their iPhones also overheat when charged this way in other car brands and even named some of them.

In different threads on Reddit, users reported having the same issue on the Audi, Tesla, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, and Ford charging pads. Some vehicle models mentioned in the conversations include the Mercedes Benz E; BMW M2, X5, and series 4; Audi S3, Q8, and A5; Tesla Model S and Model 3; and Porsche 911.

Interestingly, some claim that the overheating is also happening on older iPhone models, including the iPhone 12, 13, and 14 lineups.

It is still unknown how severe the issue is or whether it is indeed affecting earlier iPhone models. Nonetheless, Apple has already addressed the matter of the iPhone 15 overheating in general, implying that the A17 Pro and titanium frames are not culprits behind the problem. According to the giant, there is a bug in iOS 17 that is being worsened by the third-party apps (Instagram, Asphalt 9: Legends, and Uber) overloading the system. Apple promised to resolve the issue, and the fix will reportedly arrive in iOS 17.0.3.
