We just picked up our '13 328iCV......the iPhone 9 Pin worked OK with powering/charging the phone, but we will have to wait until the 9 pin to 30 pin digital to analog cable becomes available....I have 2 cables ordered (one for each Bimmer) and will report first hand the compatibility. However in conversations with Apple Tech support they said only the Video playback would NOT be supported, but all other functions/features would be.
