It’s not a good time to buy any iPhone 14. Apple’s new range has been affected by a number of bugs during launch, with Apple releasing two quick updates already. But the problems keep coming.

The latest issues affect CarPlay phone calls and data migration, and Apple has acknowledged two separate bugs with the latter.

First, CarPlay, where owners of all iPhone 14 models report that phone call quality and volume levels are not very good. The problem appears to be widespread with MacRumors finding complaints across Reddit, Twitter, Apple Support Community and its own forums. This is a typical example:

“I upgraded to the iPhone 14 Pro Max and since everyone has complained they can barely hear me on CarPlay it’s like I’m whispering and on Bluetooth they say it’s loud but it sounds like I’m in an air tunnel and it still is and hard to hear.. I’m very disappointed because I had no problem at all a few days ago on my iPhone 11 Pro Max. It’s definitely an issue with the new phone / iOS but what can I do about it? I I’ve already played with all the settings/versions I can find.”

There are reports that the problem has been reduced, if not completely fixed, by iOS 16.0.2. So, unofficially at least, Apple appears to be aware of the issue.

While Apple has not yet commented on this, it has confirmed new problems with data migration to the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. In internal documents obtained by MacRumors, the company admitted that iPhone 14 Pro models may freeze when owners transfer their data from an older iPhone. This happens in two ways: using iCloud restore, or transferring data during the Quick Start process.

Apple recommends that owners force restart iPhones if the devices are unresponsive for five minutes or more. Currently it is not known if any data may be damaged due to reboot or initial freeze.

Combine these issues with the load of iOS 16 releases and it appears that early adopters are once again paying for their passion. Two bug fixes for iOS 16 have already been released eight days after its arrival, and you can expect many more to follow.
