Question: How do I force audio out through lightning to a USB connection?

Just switched from an iPhone 6 which has a stereo-out jack to an iPhone X that does not. I had used the audio jack to connect to my car stereo and another USB to power the phone. Now that there's no audio out, I can only directly plug the usb cable directly from the phone to my car, but my car doesn't recognize the phone as a USB storage device since I don't have any songs loaded onto it yet. How do I force the audio to go out through the USB like it was a dock connector so I can listen to podcasts and streaming audio? When I tap the audio-out icon, the list doesn't include USB / dock connector out.

Thank goodness there was an answer to this. Sad though I had to find it myself instead of by searching these forums.

This is not right.


Consider the following:

Use the Lightning to 3½mm Headphone Jack Adapter to emulate the audio jack that you used on the iPhone 6.

The phone has only one port: lightning out. I can connect it either to a usb port or to a headphone jack. If I can force audio out through lightning to usb it can still charge while in use in my car.

Correct ... you would do one or the other ... music or charge.

Really???


Perhaps you should read the entire thread. I do not have any issues with my iPhone at all. I was simply responding to the original poster.


Be careful when you respond next time to be sure you understand what you're jumping in the midst of.

Not all car Bluetooth is the same. My car Bluetooths for calls but not for general audio. That and because Bluetooth is laggy are why I have continued to connect by aux out while charging from the USB, until getting the iPhone x. seriously, obviously the phone can and does send audio out through the lightning port but how do I force it to when connected by USB? In older iPhones there was a specific mode for it.
