Just got my 2013 ecoboost 3 weeks ago and having trouble the last few days with my phone sync when playing music.

using USB cable, i plug in iPhone, tell it "USB" and it will play from whatever app (music, pandora, tune-in radio, etc) but after 4 or 5 minutes it just stops playing the audio. The truck is still showing that the USB is synced but the only way it will start back up playing is if i unplug and redo.

Do y'all think this a phone issue, or truck sync issue?

I have already tried a different USB cable.

Have you tried connecting your iPhone via Bluetooth? That's how I play music from my iPhone. No problems here. Plus, then as soon as you start your truck it'll automatically connect.

I turn the music on at the iPhone then plug in the USB cable. That causes music to stop at the iPhone. Then I hit aux and tell it to use USB as the source and hit play on the iPhone again. After a second it will start up and works fine. If I don't do it in this order I can't get it to play music from streamed video. It'll play for a minute or so and then lose sound.

Mine does the same thing. The only way I've found to keep it from happening is to plug the phone in before starting the truck.

I have an XLT so no nav or big dash screen. Either Bluetooth or using cable (I prefer then you can see the artists info song etc) I turn on truck & plug in or turn on the tooth. Then I hit menu & scroll to "select source" then scroll to sync USB or Bluetooth. It usually picks up where it left off or I quickly shuffle my playlist or all songs. It never just starts playing my music unless I leave my phone plugged in when I turn off truck & leave it plugged in for when I get back. Bluetooth I always have to select tooth when I jump back into the truck. No biggie. I got the buttons downpacked to 3 secs haha
