Hi guys

I recently switched from Spotify to Apple Music, in the car this morning I noticed I couldn't control the volume of Apple Music when connected through CarPlay - the volume control wheel on the centre console and steering wheel buttons did nothing at all. When I switched it off and back on again, the radio came on full blast, as if the volume buttons are doing something but just not affecting CarPlay.

Anyone had this issue before?

TIA

My mate had a similar problem in his cla and it turned out that he had to turn the volume up to max on the phone when it was connected.

I managed to sort it actually, I think it was down to the 'Sound Check' feature being enabled on my iPhone in the Music settings.
I must admit, it seems like Spotify actually works better on CarPlay than Apple Music which is rather ironic.

OK I lied, the above didn't fix it and it seems random whether I'm able to control the volume or not. The solution is to disconnect the phone and reconnect it. Never had such an issue with Spotify.
Makes you wonder how Spotify can make their app integrate with CarPlay better than Apple can with their own music app!

iOS 11.2.6 has a bug. With the new Beta (11.3.x) the error is fixed.
