USB Audio - June2010 525d

Hi folks - sorry, i have searched but still don't seem to find a definitive answer to my question on iPod integration.

I have bought a used 525dSE F10 saloon which was registered in June 2010 so one of the first. It has USB Audio interface which I understand will allow me to use my ipod and control through the idrive and steering wheels (it just has the small screen idrive - no nav or media package).

my question is - do i actually need the BMW y-cable or can it work using the regular white apple cable?

I have a handfull of different apple device - an old ipod mini which I don't expect to work, an ipod classic which is a couple of years old and I am hoping to use and a first gen iphone. I use an iphone5 as my phone, but expect to use it simply as a phone on the bluetooth connection.

Any definitive answer on this or do i just need to wait and see (i pick it up on friday!)

thanks in advance
