Having a problem palying music from iPhone 6S to my Alpine CDE-175BT headunit.
When I am connecting iPhone via USB cable at the start of the trip, iPhone automatically opens Music app and starts playing songs from Music app. Then I manually click Spotify's play button. After this music is playing from Spotify, I can skip tracks, until I receive a call or press Pause. When call hungs up or I press Resume - Music app is here again, and I have to manually resume Spotify.
When I use bluetooth to play music via head unit, the Music app doesn't show up, but there are cons of using bluetooth:
- It takes nearly years to detect my iPhone and start playing
- Sometimes iPhone is not detected at all (as a media source, the phone functionality is OK)
- Poor music quality
- No charging (when I connect iPhone via USB to my headunit phone is getting charged)
Some time ago, having iOS 10 I had similar issue, but after some update from Apple (or Spotify) the problem was gone, all I had to do is install and then remove Music app.
If I install and remove Music app now, problem is still there, the difference is Music app doesn't open, so I have manually resume Spotify every time.
Tried turning it on and off again.
Tried reinstalling iOS.
Tried reinstalling Spotify.
Tried voodoo magic.
Nothing of the above helped.
Can someone help me solve the problem please?
