IPhone 12, iPhone 13 users facing connectivity issues with in-vehicle Bluetooth systems

Some iPhone users on iOS 15.1 and iOS 15.1.1 have reported issues connecting to the in-car Bluetooth hands-free system. This issue seems to affect many iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 owners and is not limited to any particular car brand. Also, a sudden disconnection from the hands-free system can force the user to use the iPhone while driving, which has a serious impact on safety. Separately, Apple has released iOS 15.2 Beta 4 as the latest test release for both developers and public beta testers.

As first discovered by 9to5Mac, multiple iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 users are complaining about facing connectivity issues with the in-car Bluetooth hands-free system. Users reported on the Apple Community forum that after updating to iOS 15 and iOS 15.1, calls connected via the Bluetooth system suddenly started to drop, but updated to iOS 15.1.1 released exclusively for iPhone 12 and iPhone. It will continue to decline afterwards. There were 13 models last month, including call drop improvements.

Initially, the issue seems to have affected Toyota car owners, but in a new post on the Apple Community Forum, brands such as Acura, Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, Ford, and Honda are not limited to specific car brands. It is suggested that it exists in the car of. , Hyundai, Mercedes, Porsche too.

Connectivity issues are also unrelated to Apple’s CarPlay, as affected users primarily use regular in-vehicle systems. Moreover, the issue does not appear to be limited to a particular iPhone 12 or iPhone 13 model. This is the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max, and iPhone 13 mini.

In some cases, the user had to manually place the phone on the speaker after disconnecting from Bluetooth in order to end the call while driving. As Forbes points out, this raises safety concerns.

Apple has not yet responded to user reports. Affected users haven’t found a workaround to solve the problem from the end, but they can still make a call without problems after physically connecting the iPhone to the in-vehicle system using a USB cable. There was also an opinion that it was.
