Warning: BMW Wireless Charging May Break iPhone 15's Apple Pay Chip
MacRumors, based on forum and social media posts:
Over the past week, some BMW owners have complained that their iPhone 15's NFC chip no longer works after charging the device with their vehicle's wireless charging pad, according to comments shared on the MacRumors Forums and X, formerly known as Twitter. Affected customers say the iPhone goes into a data recovery mode with a white screen, and the NFC chip is no longer functional after the device reboots.
Apparently it wasn't enough for BMWs to damage themselves during normal use.
