    When my wife plugs in her iphone 6 to charge, immediately the screen display is changed and the normal screen is no where to be seen. This is annoying to say the least. She doesn’t even turn on bluetooth, she just plugs in the usb to charge the phone.

    I get the same on my 2018 F150. I ended up plugging in to inside console. It then doesn’t take screen over.

    I use an android phone and can ‘t stand my wife’s iphone. It seems that iphone’s make everything harder to do. I sure don’t like the idea of it taking over my auto display. It reminds me of anything computer related always assumes that it involved some version of Windows. Annoying to say the least.

    @hwms All you need to do is disable CarPlay, either on the iPhone or on the infotainment system in the car. Very simply stuff.

    And as for the iPhone making things harder to do… it’s the only best-rated consumer electronics device for a decade in a row.

    That feat speaks for itself.

    Sounds simple enought when you say disable CarPlay. When I looked at the settings on the Edge it didn’t seem quite simple. I didn’t make any changes to the sync settings of the Edge because I was unsure of what I was doing.

    And just because the iphone is “the best-rated consumer electronics device for a decade”, it doesn’t make me like them any better. It reminds me of everything computer wise being geared toward Microsoft. I rarely use Windows and turned down the opportunity to own an iphone. I prefer my android and Linux for my day-to-day computing. It gives me the impression that certain things are being forced on me whether I like it or not. That is just my vent for the day.
