I have had the same issue since purchasing mine in Aug. Sometimes it won't even connect :(

Not sure if this is a fluke, but I went into my wifi settings and turned off low data mode when connected to the car and it has seemed to be staying connected. I’ll give it a few days, but others may want to try this also if you haven’t already.

I couldn’t find that option on mines. How exactly did you do this?

I have just updated Iphone to IOS 14.2 . same problem with disconnect. I am thinking of taking KIA to small claims court ......... anyone any comment?
So Kia Consumer has been in touch with me. They told me that the issue is with Apples latest iOS update and that it has nothing to do with the KIA manufacture. I feel that is total Bullcrap! Kia is trying to blame Apple but it’s something going on with the wireless CarPlay that KIA installed. (The man at the dealership even told me that the K5 were the first cars to be the “testers” of this new wireless sh*%). They need to get rid of wireless or let us have the option of having the option to use the USB cord! I’m really pissed because I spent $30,000 on a brand new car and the 2nd day had this serious issue, that Kia doesn’t want to fix or do anything about.
NEEDLESS TO SAY IM WITH YOU ON TAKING THEM TO SMALL CLAIMS COURT!

Following up to my previous post. I don’t know if I’m just lucky or what, but I haven’t had a single disconnect in 12 days since turning off low data mode on my iPhone. I’ve tested with an iPhone 12 pro and 12 pro max.

I will say that there have been a few times where it struggles to make the initial connection and toggling airplane mode for a moment seems to get it working.

Hi Everybody. I was having the same issues with my K5 GT Line. I bought it in early September. I just got a new iPhone this past weekend and so far, it has not had the connectivity issue. This includes a 3 hour drive without it kicking me out. With my old phone a 3 hour drive would have made it lose the connection multiple times.

Well I got an iPhone 12 Pro and a Kia Stonic 2021. It really piss me off because it is so randomic: I cannot understand if it’s the connection, the phone in my pocket or some other things. Obviously it is a software problem, but how can I update the Kia system? The update site it is for the maps update, not the firmware...

Im not trying to start the apple vs android argument. I use both for work and personal. When I use wireless android auto I have no issues. When I use iPhone I get drops. Which makes me think its not on the cars end. Giancarlo what os are you running on the iPhone 12prp?

iOS 14.2, the latest, not the beta.

I have opened case with Kia and below
Is the reply from them

“After reviewing your case and doing some research, this seems to be a Apple IOS issue. If you google Apple Wifi problems (Apple designed ACP to work over Wifi) the Apples developer forums are full of issues with customers with this same issue, across many connected devices including Head Units in the car. You will have to wait for Apple to develop an update and release it.”
