Some iPhone 11 Users Are Experiencing Audio Issues With Wireless CarPlay
While wireless CarPlay isn’t something that most people will be able to take advantage of, those who do have a car with the feature are noticing that it isn’t playing well with the iPhone 11. The Apple Support Community forums seem to be full of similar issues, mostly related to BMW and Mini cars. Nissan and Honda are also mentioned.
While some people have reported that iOS 13.3.1 beta 2 did fix the issue for them, that isn’t an update that most people will be able to take for a spin. The folks at 9to5Mac were able to collate some examples of users who are having problems, and it all seems to largely relate to audio skipping when an iPhone 11 series phone is used with wireless CarPlay.
I just upgraded from an Iphone X to Iphone 11 Pro. IOS 13.0 and now my CarPlay sounds like an old Vinyl record with a scratch. Playing music from the Phone skips randomly 5-15 seconds then skips again. I’ve reset the phone, I’ve erased the phone and just put 1 album on it, no luck. , updated to 13.1 and no change it still skips. My old Iphone X running 13.1 works perfectly. It’s so bad I listen to XM now. and don’t use my CarPlay to listen to music. My vehicle is a 2019 Mini Cooper JCW, I’ve had the dealership reset the ECU, any other ideas would be wonderful.
I have been having the same issue with my 2019 BMW X1. I ran through the same steps that you did in which you restored your phone and basically made it a new phone and an empty shell, and still nothing. I have also updated my firmware in the car to see if anything from that would have worked and no such luck. I have connected an iPhone X running iOS 13 and everything runs smoothly. I also went back to the apple store and exchanged my iPhone 11 Pro Max with another iPhone 11 Pro Max and still no luck. I am getting skipping of music every few seconds and if I try to make a call it goes from CarPlay to my phone.
Having the same problem after upgrading to an 11ProMax on my 2016. Honda Accord. Songs just randomly skip. Super annoying. It worked fine with my IPhone 6S.
I have the same issue with my Nissan, I try restarting my phone, I trying forgetting the device on the CarPlay settings and nothing
The potential for a fix in iOS 13.3.1 is something that many people will be clinging to, and with the update now into its third beta, it may only be a matter of time before it’s available to everyone. At that point, it will be down to users to get the update installed and then take wireless CarPlay for a spin. Hopefully, the results will be positive for all concerned.
