iPhone 7 & UConnect

My new iPhone 7 works great via Bluetooth with my UConnect '15 JGC Summit.
Just like before.
Where I do have a problem is connecting via USB.
Once I plug in the USB, the Album Art shows up on the UConnect screen but the sound switches over to the iPhone 7 speakers.
The only way to charge the iPhone while listening to my music seems to be via Bluetooth.
Each time I try to listen via the USB in the front console the sound comes from the iPhone 7 speaker rather the the HK system.

Re: iPhone 7 & UConnect

Someone posted an issue like this recently (within last month or so). And they said it had something to do with having no play lists. Once he created a playlist the issue went away. Not sure if it was iPhone7 but it sounds similar.

Re: iPhone 7 & UConnect

That was me. Posted the same issue not too long ago. I cleared all my Apple purchased music in the Music app because I now exclusively listen on Spotify. Also not enabling streaming via cellular data for the Music app does the same.

This causes the iPhone iOS to disable the USB audio apparently and route all other audio to Bluetooth.

The solve is to download at least a song in the Music app. Then you can now listen again through the USB port with any other app using audio. Oddly enough.

Re: iPhone 7 & UConnect

The upgrade to 10.0.2 didn't make difference for me.

Once I downloaded a song it worked.

Re: iPhone 7 & UConnect

Anybody else having issues with their iPhone 7 disconnecting from their 8.4AN uconnect system. This has happened to me twice in 3 days since getting my iPhone 7. I will be streaming music and the music will stop. I look at the uconnect screen and the phone shows no service. Then it disconnects completely. The iPhone says it is still connected to uconnect. I have to run off Bluetooth on the phone and turn it back on again to reconnect.

Re: iPhone 7 & UConnect

Lots of iPhone 7 users have Bluetooth issues.

I'm using a 2017 uconnect and iPhone 7 was fine. But I had issues with a Bluetooth Radar Detector (Valentine One) and I installed iOS 10.1 Beta 2.

Beta 1 is public. Beta 2 is for developers.

Beta 1 might help too or you can just sit tight until Beta 2 is public or 10.1 is released.

So far Beta 2 has fixed my Bluetooth issue with the Radar Detector.

I've only had the phone since Monday and Beta 2 since Wednesday.

Crossing my fingers that 10.1 fixes it.
