iOS 13.5.1 on a iPhone 7 is giving many user issue related to region getting changed automatically. . For some users it happening  everytime connected to CarPlay. The issue is frustrating and unexpected change of region settings from eg Belgium French to US English, together with losing the keyboard settings of iPhone 7.
