I used to have my iPhone 6s connected to my radio through Bluetooth. For some reason or another, it disconnected and wouldn't connect again. I was told to forget the device and add it again. This worked. Now, it has disconnected again and no matter what I try, it won't connect again. 


I also have trouble when I have it connected with the cord, I often have to unlug it and plug it in several times before it works. 


Is this just because of the Mircosoft/Apple thing? Is there anything I can do to get back on Bluetooth? Anyone else have issues?

I have used iPhones with my MyFordTouch and had no issues, either though Bluetooth or connecting it through USB. One thought with USB is that the cable may be damaged, in a way you can't see, so has a short that sometimes prevents it from connecting the phone. Also, on Bluetooth, make sure you make both sides "forget", delete the iPhone from Sync and delete Sync from the iPhone.

I recently had the same issue with my Android phone. The issue started about 4-6 weeks ago by not automatically connecting maybe every third or fourth time.  I would have to manually connect it.  Then about 2-3 weeks ago, it simply would not connect until I deleted my phone from Sync and repaired.  It's been fine since.

On the off chance, do you use bluetooth earphones when you're not in the car?  My car can't connect to the phone until I power off my earbuds.
