Maybe the toutedly robust titanium iPhone isn’t as sturdy as it seems. Apple has just issued a critical update for the iPhone 15 series, the tech giant’s latest smartphone. This comes in response to reported bugs associated with virtual payments and car-related functions.
In particular, BMW owners experienced issues with near field communication (NFC) features like Apple Pay when wirelessly charging their iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, or iPhone 15 Pro Max in their vehicles, as reported by the Verge.
The problem also affected virtual keys for BMW, a concern acknowledged by the German car brand last month. Reports also indicate that Toyota Supra owners were impacted.
Apple’s solution comes in the form of update 17.1.1, which promises to fix problems related to wireless charging in certain cars and a weather icon lock screen glitch.
Installing the fix is straightforward – users can navigate to their settings, locate the “software update” tab, all while ensuring their phone is connected to both a power source and WiFi. Alternatively, users can opt for automatic updates.
Bug fixes for Apple products have become so essential that the company is reportedly postponing the development of new software updates for the next year to address code glitches on current devices, according to Bloomberg. The Post has reached out to Apple for comment.
The titanium iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max are also facing criticism for uncomfortably overheating during usage. On an Apple forum, a customer reported that their device was “too hot to hold.” Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo warns that this phenomenon is likely connected to design “compromises” made to reduce the phone’s weight.
