iPhone 15 users are having some issues connecting their new iPhone 15 models to their vehicles and making CarPlay work.
According to the complaints, a significant portion of the issue lies in the connectivity through USB-A to USB-C cables. Vehicles that support CarPlay might have only USB-A ports, which means the user has to purchase a USB-A to USB-C cable for the feature to work.
However, it’s not as simple as getting the correct cable for CarPlay. Some have reported that third-party USB-A to USB-C cables do not work, while others say that a Belkin-branded cable should resolve the problem. Non-Apple chargers are less likely to work in the process.
Multiple CarPlay issues point towards the cable as the source of the problem, and Apple might release a software update to address these concerns. Also, it would be helpful if Apple would make a list of supported cables that work with CarPlay.
