jammyman34 Level 1 Level 1

So, I just updated my 4S to iOS6. I wanted to try the new maps turn-by-turn. They actually worked pretty well... unfortunatley when I plugged my phone into my cars USB cable (which worked the day before via iOS5) I couldn't hear the audio directions. I turned on my Audible app to see if a book would play, no audio, though the play counter was counting so it was playing. I then tried iPod, playing, but no audio. I rebooted the phone and tried again, same thing.


I thought my cable wasn't working because of the update didn't like the fact that it was an old cable. Tried a new cable, still no worky. I have a seriously long commute, I NEED my audible to get through it. Aside from unplugging the **** thing and listening to it through the tiny, crappy iPhone speakers while I drive I think it's acceptable to expect to use my iPhone's USB cable through my car strereo like I did before I updated... please help!!!!!

Yea, they definitely dropped the ball on this one.


Well, in case it helps anyone fix their phone, this is the sequence of events that I went through to *somehow* get mine to work:


1. My phone had no music loaded on it other than the cloud music services.

2. After iOS6 it did not work in my Accord - same as everyone else reported, I get the "no song" message.

3. I did a full restore while connected to my computer with USB.

4. That did not fix the problem - was the same issue as before.

5. I did an "all settings reset" - that did not fix the problem either.

6. I transferred a couple of MP3's and a playlist from my computer to my iPhone.

7. It suddenly started to work.


A couple of things to note, though: The cloud services "kinda work" - I don't get the correct meta-data displaying in the car, and if I try to use the car's skip-ahead/skip-back buttons, it shuts off the music from the cloud source and starts playing a loaded mp3.

    I'm having this same issue?  Anyone find a work around yet?  Not very happy with iOS 6 so far.  Between this and losing my contacts in the upgrade, it has been a decidedly "non-Apple" experience.

    I am also seeing this on my 4S and 2009 Honda Civic after upgrading from 5.1.1. to 6.  Charging still works through USB, but no audio or iPod connectivity.

  • jammyman34 Level 1 Level 1

    Hmm, I have a Honda Fit... my phone still charges, but no audio. However, sometimes, if I connect/disconnect and then reconnect I hear the audio for a second, then it goes back to no device found. So weird and so annoying!

    Having the same problem here. Audible and Pandora both don't work with my Honda Civic USB cable. The Tracks and iPod (I think it was) menu buttons are grayed out and it just says "No Song" even though the book or music track is playing. I NEED a fix for this, can't go without my audiobooks on my commute. Not happy at all with the ios6 upgrade...

  • leo8877 Level 1 Level 1

    I deleted all my music and then put it back on my phone and now it works in my car.  I had already restored my phone so I didn't think a restore would do anything.  Perhaps the music was not properly downloaded when I restored from iCloud.

    HELP !!!




    It’s not like we are working with Samsun here. They should have thought it out fixed all the bugs then went ahead. I am...... ******!  My 3 week old Volkswagen Tiguan no longer plays my MUSIC nor my Audible. Its so not ok. This is a breach of contract. I am told by apple you don’t have to update but my carrier said just the opposite our phones will not work without the updates...


    Apple get you crap together, I had such respect you. You have let a lot of apple fans down.

    I am having the same issue on my 2012 Accord as many others here... phone connects but no audio comes through. Sometimes I get half a second of audio then it turns off. I tried doing the restore, no effect. I'm pretty ****** off!

  • covarrubias.jason Level 1 Level 1

    Yes, Apple needs to address this... There needs to be an update for this problem in iOS 6 or a patch to fix this. I've also noticed that my A/V cable (30 pin to RCA style jacks) won't work any more either. The new YouTube App does not display video anymore trough that cable as it did just before the update. The Netflix app also only works intermittently like the audio cables in the vehicles.


    Apple please fix this. We understand the updates and moving forward and that this would perhaps be an issue on the iPhone 5 but the iPhone 4 and 4S should work with their original accessories as they used to.

    I am having the same issues. But unfortunately it's with my 7" Alpine touch panel. It used to show metadata for pandora and stored music, now it does not...... Any help is greatly appreciated. I have already reset my phone by holding both buttons down to reset, still the same issues

  • Kademan Level 1 Level 1

    I am calling Apple right now and will let you guys know what's up. Just so you all know, I own Wire Monkeys Integrations in Charleston SC, and you can only imagine what issues this causes for us with this horrible update. They give us a few cool things but the TAKE AWAY THE MOST IMPORTANT THING....MUSIC. I am talking to "Jesse Medina" on tech support hotline. Please feel free to blow this guy up with phone calls about the same issue so we can all be on our way back to normal. This is the only way unfortunately.

    Can you request specific reps?? Did you learn anything?

  • sooz685 Level 1 Level 1

    I also just emailed tech support at Audible--maybe they want to jump on the bandwagon since their app is partially disabled by the "upgraded" iOS6. I told them there are MANY unhappy Audible users out here who can no longer listen to their audiobooks--morning commuters are gonna be cranky and bitchy...

  • oVrKiLL Level 1 Level 1

    So fill us in. I was really destroyed when I got in my car after the update, and could no longer stream local tracks or local playlists from spotify, or pandora to my stereo via usb cable. Tried it all, cant downgrade anymore either. Did you get anywhere with the tech?

    So a partial solution I found is to make sure you have at least one or two songs loaded into your "music" app. So buy a couple of songs from itunes or transfer an mp3 or two over to your phone. That fixed the problem for me. I was able to use spotify/nav/etc. in my car again.
