Default iPhone X

is anyone having a problem with an iPhone X and CarPlay? I just upgraded and on two occasions today my phone woluld not connect. I had to reboot the car and phone several times to get a connection.
Also would love to hear from any iPhone X users that are not having issues.
Hoping this was just a fluke.

Did you try and Hard Reset the iPhone, usually this will solve most problems.

A common issue recently is there an over voltage problem with the iphone where the phone keeps disconnecting. If you buy this voltage meter, it fixes the problem:

I will give that a try. Failing that I will check in to the voltage tester.
Thanks to both of you.

I have heard of problems with iPhone X / iPhone XS / iPhone XR with cables — especially 3rd party cables longer than 1M. Not saying this is your problem but I would check your cable first.

Also, check your security settings for connecting to a non-Apple device. It’s possible that the setting involving the iPhone behavior when plugging into a non-Apple device, since you said you just updated your FW.

Last question — Are you running Developer beta or just end-user iOS?

I have been running the latest IOS, and I updated to 12.1.4 today (which just came out for 2 zero-days exploits), and I have not used carplay with that version yet.

I tried my iPhone X at the dealer with a 3rd party cable in an A5 and it would keep disconnecting if I so much as looked at the phone. Later I tried my iPhone X in an S5 with the Audi cable and it worked OK. Are you using the cable that came with the car?

Iphone x here, no issues. Make sure you have the latest iso version and check phone’s memory and make sure its not more than 90% full.
