Apple Releases iOS 12.1.3 Update to Fix CarPlay Bugs - Connected Car Life

For those with the latest iPhone (XR, XS or XS Max) you’ll probably want to get the latest iOS 12.1.3 update. With this update Apple has fixed a bug that would suddenly disconnect your phone from CarPlay. Having personally experienced this, the only we found to reconnect would be to turn the car off and then back on this is a much-welcomed update.

In addition to the CarPlay fix Apple has also released fixes for Messages, iPad Pros and the HomePod. Below is the full list of updates:

    iOS 12.1.3 includes bug fixes for your iPhone or iPad. This update:

-Fixes an issue in Messages that could impact scrolling through photos in the Details view

-Addresses an issue where photos could have striped artifacts after being sent from the Share Sheet

-Fixes an issue that may cause audio distortion when using external audio input devices on iPad Pro (2018)

-Resolves an issue that could cause certain CarPlay systems to disconnect from iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max

This release also includes bug fixes for HomePod. This update:

-Fixes an issue that could cause HomePod to restart

 -Addresses an issue that could cause Siri to stop listening
