A search on ebay for any current 2009-2011 phone ( choose your style) may include products such as screen protectors, power cables and plastic cradle with suction cup.
You can purchase the specific plastic cradle for your phone, remove the plastic holder from suction cup assembly (usually clips into each other) then simply Crazy Glue the adaptor into the BMW removable base.
Since the center console phone install by BMW automatically detects and through induction amplifies the signal and blu tooth is automatic detect, an update to any phone and phone cradle is easy.

ebay link for cradle holder
When item arrives your only interested in the plastic cradle not the entire assembly with suction cup. As shown the cradle is a slim mount with thumb release. Phone orientation forward facing up with USB, 180 degrees to photo in ebay listing.
The item shown is slim mount with thumb release. Thumb release side of cradle should be mounted/oriented to side of BMW USB port not side wall of center console.
The item shown probably is attached with four tabs probably slide together easy to seperate from extension arm. Item should easily attach to flat surface of iPHONE mounting plate with a few drops of adhslive crazy glue or 3M tape, crayze glue is preferable.
There maybe different iPHONE bases for your type of iPHONE.
Any good car stereo installer should be able to mate the cardle holder to your BMW iPHONE plate if you choose otherwise not to install yourself.
