I have a customer who has an iPhone 6 Plus and a Lexus. She is loaded as you can tell. The problem is that since she updated to the latest iOS version the streaming no longer works on her car through USB. She doesn’t like to use Bluetooth because she is concerned about ionizing radiation. So that means she hasn’t been able to listen to her music. So I did many troubleshooting steps to fix this but nothing worked until yesterday.
I had: Gotten her a new phone since her old phone had other issues, restored iOS on it from scratch using iTunes, reset all the settings, done a hard reset, tried different apple cables, reset the car personal information, really everything that was out there. I was at the end of my rope. I didn’t know what else I could try. Just for fun I thought lets try downloading a song from the Apple iTunes store and see if it plays. I remembered having authentication problems with my first iPod device so I thought maybe it needs to authenticate somehow. So once I downloaded the song, the music that was on the iPhone in the Music app started playing! I was amazed. I tried her third party music streaming app and it worked too.
It has been a couple weeks and it seems to be working. If you can’t make your USB play or recognize your iPhone try it and let me know with the About Me page. Thanks!
