Attention iPhone Users: Upcoming iOS 17.2 Update Fixes Wireless Charging Bug in GM Cars!

Apple is preparing to release the iOS 17.2 update before the end of the year, bringing new features and improvements to compatible iPhone models. One anticipated feature is the addition of a Journal, allowing users to keep a personal diary on their device protected by Face ID or Touch ID. Additionally, the update will fix a bug preventing iPhone users from wirelessly charging in certain vehicles, including General Motors cars. This issue arose after the iOS 17.1.1 update, and Apple has taken steps to address it in the upcoming release.

One of the changes includes the addition of the Translate feature to the Action Button, offering users more functionality and convenience. Furthermore, the update will enhance AirDrop by offering expanded contact sharing options and the ability to share boarding passes, movie tickets, and other eligible passes by bringing two iPhones together. Additionally, Qi2 wireless charging will be supported by the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 lines after the installation of the update.

However, Apple has decided to pull one feature from the update – Apple Music’s collaborative playlist. This decision was made due to concerns that some users may use the feature to add obnoxious tunes to playlists and aggravate Apple Music subscribers. Despite this, the upcoming iOS 17.2 update is expected to bring significant improvements and new features to iPhone users.

The release notes for the iOS 17.2 RC (release candidate) state that the update will fix an issue preventing wireless charging in certain vehicles. While General Motors previously stated that they were aware of the concern and investigating, Apple’s notes did not specifically mention GM. Nonetheless, it is likely that the update will address the wireless charging problem with GM’s vehicles.

Overall, the iOS 17.2 update is highly anticipated and will likely be the last major update of the year for Apple. iPhone users can expect to see various improvements to weather widgets and the addition of new features, making their user experience more seamless and enjoyable. The update is expected to arrive as soon as next week, bringing a host of new enhancements and fixes to compatible iPhone models.
