A relatively recent build of Apple's iOS 4.1 is apparently to blame for connectivity issues between a host of Australian-market
. The software update, which was released last September and installed on the iPhone, iPod Touch and sixth-generation iPod
, won't connect with 2009 and 2010 model-year
, LandCruiser, HiLux,
and Kluger models. Naturally, Bluetooth streaming and the 3.5mm headphone jack aren't affected, but when the device is plugged-in with Apple's proprietary 30-pin connector, users are met with a "Loading..." screen and no functionality. A service bulletin has been sent out to Aussie Toyota
informing them of the issue, and
sources at Toyota USA haven't been able to confirm whether the issue is worldwide or confined to the continent in the Pacific.
