In cars, some enthusiasts iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 run into cases when using portable Bluetooth in their cars. To iOS 15.1, the issue seems limited to those who have been updated. New iPhone users on Apple’s latest iOS device, including 15.1.1, are running into dropped calls, for a report by 9to5Mac pointing to the Apple support cable. After they start, phone calls usually go down between 2 and 8 minutes.
“I have the same problem with dropping calls. I have a Tundra 2017 and an iPhone 12 with 15.1.1, ”a Tundra_2017 user posted at the Apple conference. “The only service environment I see is connecting a USB cable from my truck to the phone.”
The problem seems to be limited to cars that do not run Apple Car Play, instead of using on-car infotainment systems. For some users, this problem does not occur on iPhone X versions.
“Spend an hour on the phone with Apple today. Downloaded diagnostic tests from my phone. I was told to call Verizon, it was a network case. Huh? ” user Jon55nj Posted. “Bluetooth has nothing to do with Verizon. This should have been restored immediately when the problem started but I think there is no way this will not be sorted out soon. I wish I had my X back.”
At this point, the simplest solution seems to be to use a USB cable and avoid Bluetooth altogether.
As of this writing, Apple representatives have not yet responded to the thread. Users have not been able to find a solution either, other than using a USB cable for the time being.
A word similar to this did not appear in our iOS 15 review. But as with the latest operating system update, there are only so many permutations testers at Apple can go through. Indeed, it is when the operating system comes out in the real world that many more small bugs are cracked. Until then, users may have to wait for the next iOS update for permanent fix.
