iPhone users might see an update to iOS 17.1.1 arrive as soon as next week
An internal Apple memo states that using an iPhone 15 series model with the wireless charger built into some recent BMW and Toyota Supra models can disable the NFC chip inside the phone. This could stop features like Apple Pay from working and reportedly, Apple-certified techs are being told to use Apple Service Toolkit 2 software to get the NFC chip running again. If that doesn’t work, an iPhone 15 series handset with this problem will have to be opened up in order to get repaired. Hopefully, Apple will address this in iOS 17.1.1.
