How To Fix iPhone 13 Pro Max Overheating
Some users blame the iPhone 13 Pro Max overheating problem on the ads that are loaded when browsing web pages. However, older iPhone models won’t feel hot while browsing the same websites.
As a temporary workaround you can try to use an ad blocker if you’re not already using one.
Vice-versa if you use and ad blocker and your iPhone 13 Pro Max overheats, pause it and check if it makes a difference.
