Recently, Apple releases new software system IOS 15.0 Carplay, but there is a software bug at carplay function.

If carplay runs on phone with IOS15.0 system, as long as carplay plays music, no matter from which music APPs even apple music, the carplay will happen carplay logout, failed disconnect, connection, or unable to play music.
This is a IOS system bug on carplay, and there are 2 solutions.
1, Short term solution
At phone settings — General — Transfer or restore iPhone — Restore — restore all settings.
Pay attention what you need to do is restore all the settings, without affecting the data and software

2, Long term solution
Wait new IOS system from Apple

CarPlay

Note that in view of the instability of the new iPhone system, when using wireless CarPlay, be careful not to upgrade the mobile phone system to IOS15, otherwise there may be a lag problem when using CarPlay. This problem is a bug in the Apple system, and you need to wait for the official system. The problem can only be solved by repairing, so upgrade after the official system is stable

At present, it has been found that when using CarPlay in the Apple IOS14.2 system, there will be a problem that the OK button cannot be used. This is a problem with the official Apple system and we cannot fix it temporarily. So if your IPhone system is IOS14.2, please upgrade the system. Repairable, please do not upgrade to IOS15

While Apple hasn’t included any mention of CarPlay fixes in the official release notes of this new iPhone operating system update, I’m seeing several reports online that it does address some rather widespread glitches in the car, including a Siri bug preventing the assistant from reading a message.

For example, several users in this reddit thread complain that Siri stops reading a new text before reaching the end, though the assistant has also encountered other issues as well, with some claiming that the audio is interrupted even when running navigation apps.

In other words, Siri can no longer provide navigation directions because it stops before offering the full instructions, therefore affecting the overall experience on CarPlay.

And as it turns out, iOS 14.6 does resolve the Siri cutting out problem, with someone confirming in a post that the update brings things back to normal and the assistant correctly provides audio feedback whenever it’s required to.

Furthermore, I’m also seeing reports from some users that a crash previously encountered when running Apple Music is completely resolved now, though I’m still waiting for some confirmation on this one.

The bad news is that others are still experiencing CarPlay crashes, with one user explaining that the audio or the input freezes until the iPhone is manually reconnected. The whole thing showed up when installing iOS 14.5.1, but it still persists after this new operating system released by Apple this week.

As always, Apple hasn’t acknowledged these problems, so everybody’s hoping the new operating system updates released to their iPhones resolve them quietly. A new beta build of iOS is also available, though keep in mind these are specifically aimed at testers and shouldn’t be installed on production devices.

CarPlay

This weekend, for example, a bunch of BMW owners noticed that CarPlay no longer worked in their cars, and reaching out to the dealership got them a confirmation the system was indeed down.

To clarify, Apple CarPlay itself didn’t experience an outage. By design, CarPlay runs on the iPhone, so it can also be used without an Internet connection; n theory, as long as the smartphone is turned on and all connection requirements are met, there’s no reason for CarPlay not to run. So, according to this reddit thread, the issue happened on BMW’s side, with several dealerships allegedly confirming the connectivity problems in some cars.

Oddly enough, some of those who were unable to launch CarPlay in their BMWs connected to the customer portal page online to check the status of the service, only to be told they need to pay for the feature. Others were getting an active license notification, though CarPlay still wasn’t working.

I spoke with my sales rep at the dealership and verified issues are going on. Had me check the customer portal website which has the car and all the information/apps on it. It shows that I’m subscribed to CarPlay. He said for some people who lost the feature it shows that they have to pay for the app all of a sudden, and some like myself are still showing a valid subscription,” one BMW owner explains.

No workaround was found during the outage, but BMW is believed to have already resolved the glitch, so at the time of writing, CarPlay should, at least theoretically, run correctly in all BMW cars.

If it still doesn’t, your best option is to reach out to your dealership and check the customer portal to see if you’re also being told to pay for CarPlay.

You can now use Waze on CarPlay’s home screen instead of flipping between apps while driving

If you use Waze and ever needed to take your eyes off the road to control your music alongside your maps, a new update is starting to roll out that should let you spend more time driving and less time fiddling with that touchscreen. MacRumors is reporting that Waze has started rolling out Apple CarPlay Dashboard support, which will allow you to see directions on CarPlay’s home screen, alongside media controls, calendar events, and more. When I heard about it, I ran out to my car and sure enough, Waze’s directions showed up on the home screen.

The company started beta testing the feature late last month, but CarPlay Dashboard has been around for Apple Maps users since the launch of iOS 13 (though it’s only been open to third-party developers since iOS 13.4). The integration is a win for driving safety, as the golden rule for car UI is basically “look at and touch the screen as little as you possibly can.”

Before this update, if you wanted to change the song that was playing, you’d have to go to the Music app, press the next button, then make your way back to Waze. That could be anywhere from 3 to 6 taps on the screen, depending on if Waze was in the app launcher on the side. That’s a lot, especially if you’re going 70 miles an hour. Now, you can have both Waze, the next turn you need to take, and the music controls on the same screen, and changing the song will only take one tap.

In keeping with the safety theme, the update also includes lane guidance, a feature that lets you know in advance what lane you should be in for your next turn or freeway exit. This should help reduce those “I have to be four lanes over in a quarter mile” moments that trip me up on occasion. Happy (and safe) driving!

CarPlay

Microsoft on Tuesday announced a slew of changes to the calling features on its Microsoft Teams app, including support for CarPlay and transferring calls between devices.

The CarPlay integration will allow Microsoft Teams users to control Teams and use Siri voice commands to initiate or answer calls in their vehicles. According to Microsoft, the CarPlay support will join other features that will make Microsoft Teams a better replacement for a traditional work phone. That includes built-in spam protection, reverse number lookup, and the ability to merge existing calls.

Those features will also join an overhauled calling interface with quicker access to features like call history, voicemail, and contacts. Additionally, Microsoft is also adding new recording features to Teams that will make it easier to record meetings and share them to cloud-based storage platforms like OneDrive.

Microsoft Teams will also get support for transferring calls between different devices in early 2021. Users will be able to begin a call on their Mac and then transfer it to their iPhone while ending it on the initial device automatically.

A full list of the upcoming changes and new features for Microsoft Teams is available here. Beyond the “early 2021” release date for select features, it isn’t clear when the overhaul will begin rolling out.

And while the Waze team is now busy working on CarPlay dashboard support, the engineers in charge of the Android and Android Auto experience have managed to address another big annoyance in the app.

There’s a chance you noticed this too. Occasionally, when launching Waze and setting up the navigation, the direction of travel is no longer centered but slightly tilted, despite the car icon, either the default arrow a custom model enabled from settings, actually displayed correctly.

At first glance, this seems to signal a GPS calibration problem, and some say other apps are affected as well, including Google Maps. However, recalibrating the GPS sensor doesn’t seem to fix the whole thing on the Android devices affected by this glitch.

Interestingly enough, similar problems have also been reported on the iOS version of the app, and the Waze team is reportedly investigating the whole thing already.

But for Android and Android auto users, the good news is that the issue has already been resolved in the latest beta build, so theoretically it should go live in the next stable update for Waze in the Google Play Store. The changelog indeed explains that the update resolves a glitch that displays “the car icon always facing up [but] navigation is tilted,” so theoretically, problems like the one highlighted in this screenshot shared on reddit should no longer occur anymore.

At this point, there’s no ETA as to when the next stable update for Waze could go live, but given the beta has already been released to private testers, this shouldn’t take too long. In the meantime, Waze continues to work just fine, so this slightly tilted navigation is just an annoyance that doesn’t affect the app’s functionality.

waze-CarPlay

Google’s Waze platform arrived on Apple CarPlay in 2018, and now it’s about to adopt one of Apple’s latest features. It appears that Waze will soon support CarPlay’s dashboard mode.

A photo obtained by the Verge shows Waze showing its navigation interface on the CarPlay dashboard. This feature splits the “homescreen” view of CarPlay with a handful of widgets that show different bits of data. In this case, Waze shows a minimized navigation view with an ETA, view of the map, and the speed limit. Interestingly, there are no reporting features on this view.

Apparently, this feature is being tested in beta right now. Waze wouldn’t directly confirm as much, but the user who sent the image below claims to be in a private beta testing group for the Waze iOS app. Seeing as Waze didn’t confirm any details about this test, it’s unclear when the feature will roll out publicly.

Google Maps added support for the dashboard back in August.

Beyond CarPlay dashboard support, this Waze beta update also adds support for lane guidance in the iOS app, a huge upgrade for navigation especially when dealing with complex intersections. That feature was announced in September.

CarPlay
In the meantime, however, the first customers have already received the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Pro they ordered, and naturally, it was only a matter of time until they came across the very first problems.

Unfortunately for drivers, CarPlay is one of the areas seemingly affected, as some discovered that connecting their iPhones to the head units in their cars no longer works properly.

While some complain of a glitch causing CarPlay to not even show up when the iPhone is plugged in, others claim the experience overall is broken down, as apps crash all of sudden, the screen turns black randomly, or the smartphone just disconnects every once in a while.

Most of these customers have one thing in common: they all owned another iPhone before the iPhone 12, so when they purchased the new model, they restored from a previously created backup.

If you still can’t figure out where this is going, it all comes down to the CarPlay settings which have been migrated from one device to another as part of the backup restoration process. Because of the authentication performed when a previously-paired iPhone is connected to a head unit in the car, CarPlay may no longer work properly, especially if the models we’re talking about have been released in the last few years and therefore come with more security systems in place.

So the workaround is as simple as it could be: you need to reset CarPlay settings and delete the synced profiles, both on the head unit and on the iPhone. In other words, just start from scratch with CarPlay in your vehicle. The good thing is that Apple has made the whole thing super-straightforward, so it doesn’t take more than one minute to complete the initial setup and start using CarPlay.
