iPhone XR/XS/7 distorted/ muffled voice issue on calls after iOS 12/12.2 upgrade [Fix]


 iPhone X/8 and iPhone 6,7 users are facing issue while using carplay app to make voice call while seating in their car.  When other person calls and iPhone 7 is connected via CarPlay to car, person on other hand hears  voice distorted/ blurred which makes it hard or impossible for them to understand. On the other side when iPhone is connected via Bluetooth there are no such issue seen and the call works just perfect.

When contacted the Apple customer care sometimes the response is received that its issue with car manufactures, which is not at all convincing as the same car system works fine with earlier version of iOS and no such issue in voice call with carplay was reported. It's certainly an APPLE issue, As after upgrade to  iOS 12 update and all of CarPlay calls are garbled.  CarPlay works fine all but voice calls out. Sounds like broken speech. The issue is seen across all car like Beetle, BMW, Jetta etc. Even upgrade to latest iOS 12/ does not fix the issue.       

To fix the issue if you try to reset the network, or reset your iPhone, does not seems to fix the issue. However there are certain reports that this has been verified as an iOS 12 problem by plugging in multiple pre iOS 12 phones into the same car using the same lightning cable.
