IOS 15 CarPlay issues: Amazon Music, SiriusXM not working, “Unable to connect”
It looks like Apple’s iOS 15 update is causing big problems for users of the iPhone manufacturer’s CarPlay infotainment system as music streaming apps don’t perform as expected.
According to iPhone in Canada Terry player, many apps in iOS 15 just don’t work properly in CarPlay. This includes music streaming apps such as SiriusXM, iHeart Radio, Google Play Music, and Amazon Music. Of course, Apple Music works well in iOS 15 and CarPlay.
Terry told us about this Apple community thread, where many iPhone users cite CarPlay doesn’t load music streaming apps on their OEM dash units, as well as third-party CarPlay units from Kenwood, Sony, and Alpine, for example.
When users try to launch SiriusXM, for example, the message “Unable to connect to ‘SiriusXM’” appears.
Apple has already released the beta of iOS 15.1 for developers and public beta testers, so let’s wait and see if these issues are resolved in the next update. Usually with any major version of iOS and iPhone there are always bugs, so it’s best to be patient when it comes to updating your devices at this time of year.
Are you facing Apple CarPlay issues in iOS 15? Hopefully a patch will come soon to fix those broken streaming audio apps because for some they are the only thing to while away the time on commutes and travel by car.
