Working: BMW Apps + iOS7

I've been keeping up to date with ios7 betas and now that beta3 is out I thought id post a quick update on my findings. normally ios6 patches are a non-issue but with any major release some things break along the way.

Bluetooth HandsFree:
Pairs without issue. reconnects without issue.

BT Audio:
pairs without issue. reconnects sometimes fail. 4 out of 5 success rate.

BMW Apps:
MOG: works
Pandora: works
Twitter/Facebook: works

-An annoyance i thought would be resolved is when you connect over USB it disables BT Audio. However when you disconnect USB it wont auto re-enable BT Audio.

if theres anything in particular you want tested drop me a note and id be glad to try it.

BMW may have to update the idrive software to get e-mail and SMS to work. I guess we have to wait 3-4 months for iOS 7 & another year or two for BMW patch!

Today's BMW Connected update from the app store seems to be hit/miss with iOS 7.

I have ios7 beta 3 as well as BMW apps option.

Everything is working fine. Here's a few notes, on the iphone 4/4s when updated to 7, the video plugin screen menu selection is more condensed. Not a big thing but just wanted to mention.

On iphone 5/ios7b3, I didn't notice any changes that were not present previously. The OP reference about the BT audio problem when connected to USB was present in ios6.

Apps for either was working as intended, some apps were recently updated to be allowed to switch apps via I-drive. The apps I tried were BMW connected, tunein, pandora, stitcher, Facebook, Twitter and maybe something else.

As for emails, I do not allow email notifications. SMS on the other hand isn't as stable as on ios6. Initially, it would seem I would get text sometimes on my idrive and not other times. Lately it has been fine though. Still can't text of coursez

SMS does work with IOS7.

You need to have your phone setup correctly for it to work.

Be Apple Dev or you can download the betas. Google shall help you. Some people are saying you need your UDID registered but I cannot confirm nor deny. Mine is registered.

Hey Chris,

Do you have the latest BMW Connected and the latest corresponding apps? It should be built-in. It should allow you to switch apps especially between Rhapsody and Tunein Radio as well as the actually BMW Connected apps. All the other ones are pending at the moment and would require you to turn on the apps first.

Your UDID has to be registered. You do not want to upgrade without having your device registered. Once it hits the activation server, your device is basically locked up with no access to the UDID until you restore back to iOS 6.

Hi John. I do have all the updated ios software.

I usually would load BMW Connected, then able to access Radio, Facebook, Twitter, ect; however, when I want to switch to Tune In, I would have to reach into the glovebox and switch the app by pressing the home button and then Tune in. I would later have to do the same to access BMW connected (Facebook, radio....)

Not sure what I'm doing wrong here.

Chris sorry for the delay in response. I found out why you're not able to access the following screen on your iphone.


If you're not using the plugin cradle, you cannot use the fastapp switcher. Did not notice that. I have my iphone 4 setup as media ipod only pretty much but it's tethered to my iphone 5 so I can run other internet applications such as pandora, office, tunein, etc. It's really the only way to go and also get video output as a bonus.

Best,
John
