Can't seem to pair my iPhone X to my 1M?

I've tried a dozen or so times and also cleared other Blue Tooth devices from my phone...still no connection?

Looks like it is trying...but, just tells me to try again?

Could it be the S/W needs to be updated for the 1M?

Thanks!

2011 and 2018 clash again. I haven’t had issues with my 2013 135is and iPhone 8+ but I did make sure I orated the car’s sw first.

OK, So I went to www.bmw.com/update and it is telling me based on my VIN# that I need the following update File name: UPD01008.bin

When I look at the details of the update I learn the following iPhones are supported:

Apple: iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, 5 (iOS 5, iOS 6)

So, I have an iPhone X which is on iO6 11.4.1

HELP!!!

Firstly are you going through the process of entering/pairing the codes on the phone and car screen?

You shouldn't have any issues as most bluetooth connections are retro-compatible even if your phone is recent. Mine is an 8 introduced at the same time as your X and i've had no issues. The bluetooth pairing mechanism is a bit clunky and i'd suggest making sure you're actually pairing the codes correctly between the phone and stereo.

if it just 'keeps trying' perhaps you are doing one of the steps out of order in the pairing?

Itís not going to say iOS 11.4. You should still update.

So, when I start the pairing process my X can find my 1M and when I select it on my phone I get the little thinking circle while the number dial pulls up on the 1M screen, I should get a number on my X that I need to then put into my 1M....However, it just gives me a message to try again?

Here's the tricky shit! So on the 1M number pad press 1111 and then your phone will bring up a place to enter the number where you will enter 1111

The car is asking you to choose a code that it will verify on the phone!

It won't bring up a number automatically

Hope that works for you.
