About the time I post a question, I start finding answers elsewhere on the web. iPhone connectivity has issues with every brand out there. While this website doesn't list too many Jaguar issues (suspect its just a sample size thing) I know we're having similar problems. I'd suggest reading through here if you have connectivity issues. It's possible that a similar problem/solution may exist.

See my post regarding new software, I was also having issues with my iPhone amongst other things but when I contacted the dealer they said there was a software update that solved many issues, so far after my car was updated I can say that everything seems to be okay

@Vichkhan, did the car software update also fix any USB related issues?

I'm having a big problem with USB connectivity with my iPhone 7. It works about half the time, and I can access InControl Apps. The other half, I get a message saying "Connect a compatible device to the USB", which prevents access to Spotify and everything else.

Tearing my hair out- I've tried updating the phone, restarting, timing the USB connection at various points (before/after InControl is loaded, etc), but I haven't been able to figure out what makes it work or not.

I was having the same issue, but if I use the genuine apple cord it works every time so my other cords are not certified ie they don't have the chip in them. They work maybe one or two time then nada. I am going to try an Amazon certified cable next.

I'm using a genuine Apple cord, so I don't think that's the issue in my case.

It still happens, although I don't know if there are any updates to the car's software or how I'd go about getting them (I presume they'd be added during a routine service?)

Default iPhone iOS 12 Connectivity Problem?

Have 450 miles on new 2018MY F Type I got in August. Everything was working relatively well with my iPhone Bluetooth connection until something went wrong last night and the car is now not playing music off my iPhone library. The only thing that has changed is me downloading the new iOS 12 software for my phone early last week. Things worked for awhile but again went haywire last night.

Anyone experiencing similar problems with the new Apple OS?
