Full Story

Several owners of GM vehicles have begun to experience issues with wireless charging after installing iOS 17.1 on their iPhone 15 handsets. Unlike a previous issue that affected BMW vehicles, the problem does not disable the NFC capabilities of an iPhone 15. On Reddit, users observed that their iPhone 15 models only charged wirelessly for 10 seconds before the charging cut out, even with the case on or off. The problem was also reported on an Apple discussions forum and the GM-Trucks forum, with users trying various troubleshooting methods without success. Complaints mentioned models such as the Chevy Bolt EUV, Chevy Traverse, GM Silverado, and GMC Sierra.

After experiencing the wireless charging issue with their iPhone 12 Pro Max, one Reddit user noted that the problem arose after switching to an iPhone 15 Pro Max. Users have reported testing the charging pads at home, which worked properly, and other iPhone models, which did not have problems. Potential solutions may include an upcoming iOS 17.2 beta or a stable version of iOS 17.2 before the end of the year. Apple may also release iOS 17.1.2 specifically aimed at fixing the charging problem in GM vehicles.
