(Image credit- Business Insider) If CarPlay is not working properly, there may be two reasons behind it, either your phone is not connected properly to the car or someone changed the CarPlay settings. When Apple CarPlay keeps disconnecting, cable and Bluetooth troubles are typically the cause, but there are alternative solutions to explore. Apple CarPlay disconnects frequently because of various issues. The following are the some of the reasons if your Apple CarPlay keeps disconnecting frequently.
  • VPN conflicts
  • Out-of-date software
  • Problems with the Lightning to USB cable
  • Other connectivity issues
  • Wireless Bluetooth interference
If CarPlay keeps connecting while you're driving and then disconnecting, try each of the solutions listed below. If one of the solutions seems to work, you can stop and wait a while to see if the issue has been resolved. If not, go back to the list and try the other solutions.

1. Try to reconnect CarPlay again
