Overheating Issues on The OnePlus 9/9R/9 Pro

Fix Overheating Issues on OnePlus 9/9R/9 Pro

There can be a bunch of reasons why your new OnePlus 9/9R/9 Pro might be having some overheating issues. It could be due to a hot environment, unnecessary apps that fill up the background, an incompatible case, and more. Let us start with some basic fixes:

Try to Keep The Smartphone in Cool Environment

If you are living in a hot area then it is a totally different case. However, the most ideal temperature range for any smartphone to function is between 0° to 35° Celsius. So try keeping your phone in that temperature range. If you live in a hot area, keep your phone cool down every now and then.

Replace or Get Rid of a Bad Cover

I am not a back cover guy but a lot of people put their expensive phones in a back cover for safety and it is recommended too. However, a thick bulky cover can just disrupt the device’s cooling system as it doesn’t let the heat dissipate. You can easily know if your back cover is causing the problem or not. Just use the smartphone without the cover for a while and if you notice the difference, get a new one.

Use Compatible Charger and Accessories

The good thing is that OnePlus still provides a charger in the box and it is recommended that you only use that charger to charge your OnePlus 9/9R/9 Pro. Charging your device with an incompatible charger can damage your device and you don’t want to damage your expensive phone so just use a compatible charger and charging accessories.

Close Background Apps

Background apps are one of the biggest culprits of overheating your phone. If you have too many of them running in the background, it takes a lot of CPU resources causing your phone to overheat. Just try not to run too many apps at once and do not install shady apps as well.

By Software Update

Sometimes there might be a bug that is causing the overheating issues. You can easily fix the overheating issues on the OnePlus 9/9R/9 Pro by updating the software.

Just go to the ‘Settings’, navigate to ‘System’, and tap on ‘System updates’.


By Resetting the App Preferences

You see, oftentimes there is some software conflict that can cause overheating issues and by resetting the app preferences, all the apps will restore to their original settings. Here is how to do it:

  • Go to the ‘Settings’.
  • Navigate to ‘System’.
  • Tap on ‘Reset options’.
  • Tap on ‘Reset app preferences. Finally, tap on ‘Reset apps’.

That’s it and this will reset your app preferences. It will not clear any personal data. However, it will reset app notifications, default apps, VPN configurations, app permissions, clear all paired devices, remove all WiFi passwords, etc.

By Resetting Your Phone

This is the last option that you can try from your side. It will reset your phone and clear it out of any data. Make sure that you take a backup of all of your data before doing this. Here is how to do it:

  • Go to the ‘Settings’.
  • Navigate to ‘System’.
  • Tap on ‘Reset options’.
  • Tap on ‘Erase all data(factory reset).
  • Finally, tap on ‘Erase all data’ to confirm the reset.

That’s it and you are all set.


Closing Phrase

So these were some of the ways by which you can fix the overheating issues on OnePlus 9/9R/9 Pro. If these methods do not help you then there might be something wrong with the internals of your device or battery. I suggest that you visit the nearest OnePlus support center for help.
