Wireless CarPlay on iDrive 5.0? Do NOT download iOS 14 beta

I downloaded iOS 14 public beta while out of town on vacation. It was actually an awesome OS the few days I had it.

Then I went into my car. No CarPlay. Weird.

Tried disconnecting. Reconnecting. Deleted phone from car. Deleted car from phone.

Turns out iOS 14 beta will NOT connect with wireless CarPlay on iDrive 5.0 at this time. Iím in the process of reverting to iOS 13 at this time because losing this feature of my car is a dealbreaker.

The 2020 M4 has iDrive 6.0, correct? iDrive 6.0 seems to communicate with iOS 14 but iDrive 5.0 does not.

You can flash from idrive 5.0 to 6.0, its just a software adjustment

I'm keeping iOS13 until until I have to update. I have too many devices in my home to update early before all the hardware manufactures are on board. I certainly do not want to lose my 20 years subscription of Carplay on my F32

Totally agree - stay away from any Apple beta versions.

From my experience, they're usually 1-2 steps behind regarding testing compared to others in the industry.
