You have a bluetooth beacon enabled... If your phone detects bluetooth devices, it will enable it's own bluetooth and pair if it's setup to do so...

Could You please share The knowledge how to set it up?

My 1+5T hooks up fast.
In your vehicle,
Press options, then the middle of the controller, which will put you in settings. Then, you go to the spot relating to Bluetooth, and press "search for new device."

On your phone, go to "settings" and make sure Bluetooth is not disabled or disconnected , or otherwise assure it able to "link".
Make sure it is. Discoverable..

Now the car should indicate it is paired, and a number which is given as a code on the display screen will need to be transferred into your phone.

After entering the number into your phone the phone will generate a list under the Bluetooth heading which correlates with your car.

Mine, for example, shows as BMW 07523 on the phone.

My experience has been with Android phones, but I think Apple phones are very similar as regards the method.

Mein Auto:
I have only owned mine a week and when iI 1st got it the Bluetooth would not work at all and I had a error message saying sis malfunction.
I pulled every fuse one at a time and tested them. I found no bad ones but after that my problem with the sis wen away.
The bluetooth showed u on my Galaxy S8+ but would fail to pair. It paired fine with my old note 4. I gave up trying the S8 and went to the store and sometime along the trip it decided to pair. I have no idea what happened but it works fine now... I just wish I could stream music from my phone to the radio but id that is possible I have not figured out how.

iPhone 7 and Galaxy S7 connect to an '06 E60 525xi with the standard non-nav head unit.

Our '14 F30 328i xDrive with all factory infotainment options aside from the HK audio system works with every phone I've tried.
