Users of the OnePlus 9 Pro are complaining about an overheating problem that is hampering the device's ability to record videos or take photos. So persistent is the complaint that a unified thread on the issue on OnePlus forums is now 10 pages long.
The problem seems to stem from the phone's software as multiple tests have shown that temperature on the phone hardware itself is fine.
OnePlus has said that it was aware of the issue and will be fixing it with updates over the next few weeks.
While phones overheating is not an uncommon issue, the problem here is that the frequent and intrusive warnings also block a user's ability to take photos and videos. This occurs because the device software seems to think that there is an issue with overheating and shuts down intensive apps to regulate the temperature.
Besides the overheating some users also reported problems with the battery life. While OnePlus has expressed commitment to solve the issue, let's wait and watch on how long this takes.
Update 1: OnePlus has reached out to us and confirmed that the issue will be fixed with an update that the company will roll out soon. The version number for this update will be 22.214.171.124.Update 2: OnePlus is now rolling out the new update that includes the fixes.
