Anyone else have issues with connecting their iPhone via the lightning cable? It’ll make the sound of being connected and show up on the screen for a second and then the screen will say no phone connected. It’s happened twice since I’ve gotten my RT about a week ago. And you have to unplug and plug it in several times before it works.

Sorry if this has been talked about before, I used the search feature didn’t see anything like it.

2019 RT M6 base model. 7”screen.

I always use Apple cables. It’s the same cable I used in my 18 mustang (stang had no apple carplay, I basically used it as a charger and played audio through Bluetooth). I’ll try another cable and see what happens. I think, but not sure, the USB hub in the center console might be loose.

Got in my car about 10 minutes ago and it did it again. Plugged it in a few times. Nothing. Then I accidentally hit the Siri button, and figured what the hell I’ll ask her to play something (I’m trying to play music or the podcast I was listening to). So I say “ play for whom the bell tolls” and she plays it, and everything works. Weird.

when you plug the phone in, you have to unlock it for it to connect, try that and report back...........

Hi AttackHelicopter,
If you continue to experience any difficulty, we suggest scheduling an appointment with your dealer to have this inspected. You may also send us a private message and we'll be happy to assist with that process.

Use a new cable. Apple cables only.
I’ve tried new Apple cables and unlocking my phone first as well as using Siri and unplugging. Nothing fixes the issue. My 2017 had the same issues. Except today the radio would not go off and the message “cannot turn off while a phone call is active”, or something to that effect. There is a computer glitche in the software. Does the same thing occur with Samsung devices? I wonder. I showed my salesman and he was “shocked”. I have an appointment with service. We’ll see what happens.
