Could you please tell me if we can plug directly an iPhone or an iPod in the USB socket to read music or it's not possible and we must plug an Aux-in too ?

Thank you very much for you kindness and patience with me
I have linked your thread here (french BMW 1 series forum) :

Big Up For Josť
Thanks a lot

You can plug your iPod to the head unit without problems! It will be recognized as iPod and you will be able to choose between:
- Artist
- Albums
- Songs
- Generes
- Lists
- Podcasts

But you will need this cable:

You can get it at your dealer or eBay. I think the right part number is 61120440812


PD: All functions can be enabled by coding the head unit.
- Bluetooth
- HiFi

Because I have read your french thread (I only understood a little bit) and you were talking about this. One of your friends said that if this features are not enabled from factory it wouldn't work and this is wrong.
You can enable what your want.
Why don't do it by your self?
Retrofitting is always possible!
