Bluetooth issues help

Whenever I sit in the car I play music first, if I start playing a song from my playlist and then switch to a song that I search (Apple music) it looks like iDrive can't figure out what song is playing and just mutes it. I tried forgetting and adding again, deleting bmw connected app? But no luck... the song still says it's playing on my phone but no audio. When I plug aux it works fine so it's just the Bluetooth connection. I'm on iOS 14.

Also my USB cable when I plug it into my phone it always flashes on and off, I tried different cables but it keeps happening so I can't even plug my phone in with USB

Have you tried updating your BT software on the car?

Download it from BMW site. Youíll have to search for it.
Put it on flash drive and insert in center armrest USB port
Navigate via idrive to the menu to update software and apply update.

At least youíll eliminate that specific variable.

Also there is an update to iOS 14. 14.0.1

As far as your cable issue. You could have lint or junk inside your charging port. Take a flashlight and a plastic dental pick and clean it out.

Your contact slot could also be worn out

Are you still under warranty? Maybe the USB needs to be replaced?
