Users have expressed concerns about their iPhone 15s experiencing problems after using BMW’s in-car wireless charging.
Apple had previously ignored these concerns, but this appears to be changing.
According to MacRumors, an internal Apple memo to third-party repair providers indicates that a software update due later this year will address the issue.
Preventing a “small number” of in-car wireless chargers from “temporarily” disabling iPhone 15 NFC chips.
Individuals experiencing this issue should refrain from using the wireless charger in their cars until a fix is released, according to Apple.
Many users have expressed their concerns about BMW wireless chargers interfering with Apple Pay and the BMW digital key feature, sharing their experiences on platforms such as Reddit, Apple’s Support community, and MacRumors’ own forums.
BMW appeared to acknowledge the issue earlier this month, when the BMW UK account on X responded to a complaint by stating that the company is working with Apple to investigate the problem.
Because it’s difficult to tell which models are affected, if you own a BMW or a Toyota Supra with a wireless charger, it’s best to avoid using it until a solution to the problem is implemented.
Apple has promised a software fix for later this year, which likely means it will be a month or two before this issue is resolved, so we advise patience.
Apple previously acknowledged the issue of overheating and battery drain with the new iOS 17 update.
Thankfully, Apple quickly addressed the issue with the iOS 17.0.3 update earlier this month. However, the most recent iOS update is iOS 17.1, which was released last week to address SAR issues with the iPhone.
