I have had this phone for 9 months, and today it stopped playing music via the lightning cable. Music plays, but only from the speaker. iOS is 13.7 (I am not keen on upgrading to iOS 14 until they sort the battery drain issue).

The iPhone has been playing music from the lightning outlet to the car radio or house hifi without a problem before now. It charges via the lightning port. I have checked the switches and USB Accessories is "on". All else is working.

Stumped. Any ideas what to do to get it working again?
