The latest iPhone was just as hyped up as always. We heard about it for weeks, saw adverts for it everywhere and watched as people queued up in shopping centres to get their hands on it.
The tech giant has now had to issue a ‘urgent update’ for the iPhone 15s – you know, if you’re lucky enough to even have one anyway.
The iPhone 15 (and all its plus and pro spin-offs) was released back in September.
And there’s also been some complaints about weird bugs linked to cars and payment.
You wouldn’t necessarily think these two things to be related, but apparently some BMW drivers have reported issues with their Apple Pay after wirelessly charging their iPhone 15 in the car.
Perhaps not the most relatable scenarios for all of us out here but it does sound pretty annoying.
BMW UK previously confirmed on X back in October that it was aware of the issue, writing that the ‘topic is currently being investigated together with Apple’.
There’s also reports that those with Toyota Supras have had similar issues.
So, in attempt to fix this communication feature failure following wireless car charging, Apple have issued update 17.1.1.
According to the Apple support site, iOS 17.1.1 provides ‘bug fixes’ including:
“In rare circumstances, Apple Pay and other NFC features may become unavailable on iPhone 15 models after wireless charging in certain cars.
“Weather Lock Screen widget may not correctly display snow.”
To install this fix on iPhone, you just need to go to your settings and to the ‘software update’ tab while your phone’s connected to a power source and WiFi.
You can also switch on automatic updates so your phone will install any new iOS whenever it’s connected.
Bloomberg report that Apple is having to hold off on developing new software updates for 2024 because all of these bug fixes have gotten so crucial with glitches on devices.
LADbible has contacted Apple for comment.
There were previously complaints from users on Reddit that their phones kept turning off overnight – meaning their alarms weren’t waking them up in the morning.
Many speculated that there’s a problem with their phone’s battery health and the device automatically switching itself off in the night.
