Lightning to RCA Jack

Have an iPhone XS without a female RCA jack to hook up to the male RCA jack on my Z4M. I just stumbled on an RCA to Lightning adaptor. Possible that this adaptor allow the XS to be used? Thanks!!!

Yes, the lightning to RCA male cable will work on the Aux function in the Z4M. I use mine all the time on my Apple iPhone 8 Plus, sound quality is much better than from the radio in the car.

I had the same problem. Tried out a few lighting to female 3.5mm adapters and got a ton of hissing noise. I ended up with a lighting to male 3.5mm cable and a wireless charging pad I can clip into the air vent that also works with magnetic cases. Now I can use my phone for nav, audio and keep it charged.

Here's the charger: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I got a coiled lightning to 3.5mm cable and wrapped it around the power cable for the charger so I don't have cables running all over the place. Unforunately it's out of stock.
