United-States 2013 Mini Doesn't "See" iPhone/iPod

I have been experiencing a sudden glitch in my 2013 Mini Hardtop. The Y adapter is plugged in and for some reason the Mini does not see the iphone or ipod. I have tried 3 different units: 2008 iPod Nano, iPhone 4 and iPhone 5s. The symptoms started as a sudden switch back to the radio, then there was a switch to the radio every time I advanced a song using either the dash or the steering wheel controls. Reversing the song (going back a song) didn't create the problem. It would take a minute for the iPod to show back up on the dash. Now my Mini just acts as if iPhone/iPod just doesn't exist. Is this a cable problem or a unit problem (please, not a unit problem. I just got the car's engine replaced).

I thought I read somewhere on here that a standard Apple USB cable will work, trying that should at least go some way to proving if its the Y-cable or not. Presumably it's an original BMW Y-cable (with an adapter for the 5S?)
