Default Connecting iPhone

Moving up from 2012 A6 to Q8 and wondering if I need Lighting/USB cable connection to get full connection to my iPhone X? They list a USB cable kit (LUC) in port installed options but if I can get full connection, including Apple Play using BlueTooth, no need to buy any cable?

These cables are dead money, they’re just standard USBs according to my dealer. My car did not have them optioned. Almost every car I looked it did have them actually. Your phone should work fine with wireless Carplay or worst case you use your own lightning cable.

Don't bother with the cable if you have an iPhone X. Use Wireless CarPlay if you want to, or just regular bluetooth. Use the wireless charger to keep the power topped off. No cables needed.

Personally, I'd say screw cables since you can charge wirelessly and use Apple CarPlay wirelessly. Just make sure to connect the the 5G wireless network, not the other one in order to use Wireless CarPlay, I had to figure that out myself initially...
