Multiple iPhone14 Pro and iPhone14 Pro Max buyers have complained that they can’t hear the sound well when making a call via CarPlay.
Post to Reddit, Twitter, etc.
This issue has also been posted on the US media MacRumors forum, Reddit, Twitter, and Apple’s support community.
According to users who experienced the issue, when connecting the iPhone 14 Pro or iPhone 14 Pro Max to CarPlay and making a call, the other party can’t hear you or your voice sounds far away.
Problem occurred with iPhone14 Pro series with iOS16.0.1
In particular, it seems that there are many cases where the iPhone 14 Pro / iPhone 14 Pro Max with iOS 16.0.1 is experiencing call problems. However, some users have encountered call problems on iPhone 14, and they wrote that downgrading to iOS 16.0 did not fix the problem.
MacRumors reports that the above problem can be reproduced by connecting an iPhone 14 Pro with iOS 16.0.1 to a Honda Civic (2022) with a wired connection and calling with CarPlay.
The cause of the problem or the range of users affected is unknown, but MacRumors speculates that it may be a bug specific to the iPhone 14 series.
