Question: Update to iOS 11.3 caused issues with bluetooth and my BMW 528i

Ever since updating to iOS 11.3 I no longer can see my recent calls from my BMW dash to make quick calls. Now my music will update to the artist playing on my screen which it didn't do before but will constantly disconnect while having to be manually reconnected every 2 minutes. Any one else having this issue? Any potential fixes in the works?

iPhone 7 Plus, iOS 11.3, null
