Recently, owners of the iPhone 15 have encountered a new problem, this time involving wireless charging in GM vehicles. This issue follows a similar problem that was reported with BMW vehicles, which has since been resolved.
The problem seems to have become more prevalent after users updated their iPhones to iOS 17.1. In some GM vehicles, including Chevrolet, Buick, and Cadillac, the iPhone 15 either fails to charge wirelessly or charges only for a few seconds before stopping.
This issue occurs regardless of whether the phone is in a case or not. Interestingly, older iPhone models do not face this issue, even when running the same version of iOS.
Some users have found that reverting their iPhone 15 to iOS version 17.0.3 restores the wireless charging functionality, suggesting that the issue is specifically related to the latest iOS update.
GM has acknowledged the problem and is currently investigating it. Since the issue appears to be tied to the iOS software, it is likely that Apple will be able to resolve it with a future update.
This situation highlights the complexities of integrating advanced technologies like wireless charging across different platforms and devices. It also underscores the importance of thorough testing and quick response to software-related issues in our increasingly interconnected world.
