    iPhone 8, CarPlay & Bluetooth

    I’ve noticed that every time I plug my phone into my car’s USB socket to use CarPlay with the car’s built-in entertainment system, the Bluetooth switches itself on even though I don’t want to use it. This means that I either need to remember to switch it back off again, or accept that my phone’s...
