I drive a 2017 Corolla.
When I first got the car, I had an iPhone 6 running iOS 11.
When the phone was connected through Bluetooth, I could receive messages through my car.
If I was driving, the car would read them off to me.
If I was stopped, the messages would appear on the screen to read.
After I updated the iOS to 12, the messages stopped coming through the car’s Bluetooth.
At first, I thought it was the phone itself, but since I’ve gotten the XR, I still can’t get messages through the car’s Bluetooth.
The car says the phone is connected for both phone and audio functions, including my contacts/address book. However, when I go into the car’s apps and pick messaging (which is separate from the phone) it acts like it’s processing (saying I may need to operate the device), but nothing happens.
Nothing pops up on my phone, and the car’s “processing” stops without any further messages.
Is there anyone else who drives a Toyota whom this has happened to?
Also, I’m sure if this is a problem with the phone’s software, or the car’s. It’s not the end of the world, but I’d really like to get this function to work on my car again.

I have a 2015 Highlander. Same issue.
Toyota told me it was the Apple update and only a problem with iPhones.
Though my sister has a 2015 Rav and same phone and hers is fine.
Another sister has Tundra and her car also stopped working.
They told me I could install their newer sound system at a cost of $500!
No thank you. I would love to hear they are getting a fix for this.

I have a 2014 Honda CR-V. I had the same issue with iPhone 6.
Honda said it was an iPhone issue.
My boyfriend’s android phone still read texts in my car, so they must have been right.
I recently got a 7 & cleared all phone data in my car & it works again.
