    The rollout of the relatively new iOS 15 hasn't been plain sailing thanks to a bad run of bugs and glitches. Though teething problems are to be expected in the months that follow the launch of a new OS, several of these issues have begun to affect CarPlay.

    Various users are reporting that the Apple service is automatically taking over the audio inside of vehicles' cabins. Naturally, this is far from ideal when you're trying to travel. Aside from users having to grapple with a misbehaving Apple CarPlay, which disrupts navigation, it appears that no one yet knows what to do to fix it.

    The new CarPlay issue doesn't just stem from a single complainant, either: reports of the unusual bug that crashes the app just as a user selects a song to play is rife on the official Apple forums, spreading like wildfire across the many troubleshooting threads, as users seek answers in and amongst the gallery of similarly baffled users.

    For instance, in response to a suggestion to switch devices, one forum user reports that they've been experiencing the same problem with CarPlay, albeit with three different phones and three different cars – all three of which have suffered the same recurring issue. Manually changing the audio source has no impact on the setup because CarPlay automatically takes over the audio without letting you change it.
