I-phone 10Xs sync issue

Hello All.

I recently had to get a new phone 10Xs and it will not automatically sync to my 2015 Forester. Previously, I had a 6s and it worked fine. "

I've added and removed the phone through the radio. I've reset the Bluetooth. I've tried using the buttons on the steering wheel......and NOTHING. I saw someone mentioned getting the radio firmware updated - I called the dealership about that yesterday and no one has returned my call.

Any ideas????

Thank you!

Sorry that I cannot directly answer your question. I found the bluetooth on the OEM head unit to be so frustrating. I upgraded to an aftermarket with apple carplay and have been thrilled with the difference.

My iPhone 8+ wouldn’t auto sync the time until I reset the stereo to factory defaults and setup the phone under a profile that wasn’t default.

Are you running stock Clarion HU? CF625UM? There was a f/w upgrade I applied a couple of years ago. Chased down the link here..


Good luck - my 5, 7+ and Xs Max all had/have issues. All depends on iOS version it seems. KNOCK wood...
