Over the weekend, MacRumors reported that several commenters on its forums complained that their iPhone 15 Pro NFC chips were dying after sitting on their BMWs’ wireless charging pads.
We reached out to both Apple and BMW to see if there was any reason to believe that’s possible, and Jay Hanson, a spokesperson for BMW’s product and technology group, replied via email:
We’re looking into this ... We’ll get back in touch as soon as we have something.
Apple has not yet responded. Hopefully, we’ll know more soon.
