iPhone 5s works with uConnect
 
In case anyone was wondering the iPhone 5s pairs up no problem and functions normally. Except for the texting thing the manual already stated. Haven't had any incoming texts yet so not sure if that works or not.

Yes but how well does it pair with a blackberry z10? And why do I get the feeling that I'm not going to be able to find out until I try it myself? ;)

Let us know if it does notify you of incoming texts and allows you to view them (if not moving) and speak them aloud. I've been holding off on getting the 5s because I noticed on uconnectphone.com it says text notifications does not work on the iPhone 5 with iOS 6.1.4, but it does work with iOS 6.0. There is no mention of iOS 7 nor the iPhone 5s.

What was the texting thing? I must have missed that.

I just ordered my wife's 5s for her today.

iPhone can't do uConnect voice texting, of course you can just use siri to do the same. Here's the bit from the user guide:

"Voice Texting (U.S. Residents Only) – Want to dictate a personal message? Register with Uconnect® Access to take advantage of a new, cloudbased Voice Texting service, an enhancement to Voice Text Reply.

• Voice Texting allows you to compose a new text or reply to an incoming text message. Before you attempt to use the Voice Texting feature, check to ensure you have the following:

a. A paired, Bluetooth enabled phone with the Message Access Profile (MAP).No tall Bluetooth enabled phones support MAP, including all iPhones (Apple iOS). Visit Uconnect™ | Select your Vehicle for system and device compatibility information.

b. An active Uconnect Access trial or paid subscription. Press the ‘U’ button on the lower right hand corner of the touchscreen to begin the registration process.

c. Accept the Allow MAP profile request on your smart phone. (Please refer to device manufacturer instructions for details)."

Both my wife's iPhone 5 and mine will receive incoming texts and display or read them to me through the Uconnect screen/speakers.

Worked with IOS 6 and continues to work with IOS 7. Still can't reply to text messages through Uconnect, though.

Excellent, thanks for letting us know. Now I just need to find a store that actually has the 5S in stock

Interesting that Apple states all iPhones since the 4 support MAP. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3647

But Apple has a caveat stating that the interacting system must support the encrypted connection aspect of MAP. I wonder if that is the Uconnect limitation for reply texts.

A Citadel and the 5S.....you must be the envy of all your friends :) Had no trouble pairing the phone (an old 5) and using VR with my contacts, but haven't figured out how to stream Pandora. Any tips?

I have a 5, 5s default, and note 3 connected to my R/T. Everything streams fine from multiple sources, USB and BT. I get texts to read through Uconnect on the iPhone no problem. I just use Siri through the Uconnect to respond if needed as the icon nectar voice to text and iPhone do not get along. Switching between devices on the fly is very easy and quick.
