    Just got an iPhone11 Pro. Within 3 seconds of setting it on the Qi, the green and yellow lights start blinking like it’s overheated. I am not using a case.
    My iPhone8 Plus with a case charged without problems.

    I’m wondering if anyone else with an 11 is having issues? I’m hoping that it’s a compatibility thing with the newest version of iPhone and that Toyota will come out with a software update... probably in the next year or so.

    I've got a 2019 Sport and got the 11 Pro on launch day. I've stuck it on the charger probably 3 times since then, no issues yet. For what it's worth I've only placed it there when I had 80% or higher charge at this point so I'm not sure if that would affect it at all.

    *EDIT* You may already be very aware of this but if you aren't, Apple has released 13.1 and an additional 13.1.1 update. Make sure you download the latest version if you haven't already to be safe.

    Mine charges fine albeit slowly. As an aside, the 11 pro battery life is so good, charging in the truck doesn't come into play for me with my mostly short trips.

    My 11 pro max seems to work just fine. No issues so far.

    Compatibility issues? You need to go buy the new Apple Tacoma, it's only $86,469

    Many people are having issues with the Qi charging pad. If you do get the phone to charge, it will take forever and get hot. I highly doubt Toyota can provide a patch to fix the issue with you phone as the charging pad seems to be basic. If you have the 11 Pro, then you should be able to take advantage of the "wired" quick charge 3.0. FWIW, I use the Aukey quick charge 3.0 as found here paired with a Scosche magnetic vent mount found here. They work great! Of course, the USB charging cable needs to be rated for quick-charge for it to work (not all cables are the same!) GL!

    I have a Toyota Tacoma 2017 TRD. Had no issues with my iPhone X using the Qi.. Got an iPhone 11 for Christmas and it does not charge using the Qi. Personally, what I think is it's an Orientation problem. I believe that the phone can't properly line up in the bin because the iPhone 11 is bigger and doesn't allow you the needed room to move it around. Personally, I think Toyota should be able to remove it and adjust it especially if the Tacoma is under warranty , but Toyota wouldn't even entertain my idea. 21 years in the technology business apparently wasnt enough to get them to believe me. I even showed them that my iPhone X worked perfectly in there and then I showed them that my Iphone 11 would Qi Charge using a portable Qi charger. Toyota said, So use the portable one... Yeah.... That's why I spent 44,000 on a new truck... So I would have to use or buy new items to get the practically brand new items to work.. First time Toyota has let me down.. I've owned many Tacomas . Only vehicle worth buying in my opinion over the last 20 years..

    My 11 pro won’t charge on my 2017 tacoma either. I tried with the case on and without the case.

    edit- I placed it towards the front corner of it right by the light and it’ll charge but once it slides a little bit while driving it doesn’t charge so it has to be in that exact spot.

    I've put my iPhone 11 pro on the charger plate a few times and it charges, but I can't say much more. First, this phone's charge lasts forever. At least with my usual usage. I've gone two days and still had 30-40 % charge. Second, my daily trips are short. 10-20 minutes so I wouldn't expect much in the way of power increase in that short of a span even if I needed to charge it. I guess I'm in the minority here as some of you use more resources from you phone and drive longer distances where there is time for the phone to charge up.

    No probs with my iPhoneX except that it has to be on there just right or it won't charge. Braking and sharp curves don't help either.
