For now, the severity of the issue is not clear and only a few GM models such as Bolts, Silverados, Sierras, and other drivers have shared their concerns over iPhone 15 wireless charging on platforms such as Reddit, Apple and GM forums. Some GM drivers also said that they have talked about the issue to Apple, but they have asked them to raise a complaint to General Motors. However, Wireless charging was working fine in the GM cars till the iOS 17.1 update, therefore, it is speculated that the problem has arrived with the update.

Wireless Charging has been useful in various cases as users often forget to charge their devices for several reasons and keeping the technology in the car for convenience makes things easier especially when you are in a rush.

If the charging problem has something to do with the software, Apple will likely roll out the solution at the earliest, just like it did with BMW.
