Hi!
My SLK is 4 years old now. I’ve recently upgraded my iPhone to an XS, but the lead under the armrest no longer fits. Anyone got a solution?
Thank you!

In the armrest cubicle, you will find a USB port to connect your standard Apple cable to your iPhone XS. This will sometimes give an error of incompatibility with the cable connection, but it will work to charge your phone.... Of course, the actual connection to using the iPhone is by Bluetooth, which should be seamless....

I have found and others have reported some USB cables do not work. Try one that comes with the phone.

My iPhone was charging today using a lead under the armrest. Now trying to get my iPhone XS to link via Bluetooth to play my music. I am able to link to make calls.

Yes, once your linked via Bluetooth you can stream music and make calls.
The steering wheel phone buttons and voice operation will also work.
