    Just plug the headphones in and it will automatically switch over. It will switch back to Bluetooth when you unplug the wired headphones. It will switch to the iPhone's speakers if you turn the Bluetooth headphones off (or toggle Bluetooth off) and unplug the wired headphones.

    Could you explain with more details? There is no setting in the stock music app for bluetooth. If you have bluetooth on in your device's settings, you should still be able to plug headphones in and it work.

    I should have clarified. I know before the update there was the option to switch between headphones, speaker, and Bluetooth, same as when you're talking on the phone.
    I drive an 18 wheeler and sometimes need to get out to check the trailer. I'll leave my phone in the cab plugged into the stereo, but on occasion I might be too far and my Bluetooth disconnects and reconnects, streaming the music to my Bluetooth. I have a lifeproof case on my phone so to always disconnect the headphones is a pain since you have to unscrew the headphones from the jack. That's why I was wondering if there was another way to switch between devices other then unplug and plug back in the headphones.

    Nope. It's one of the downfalls to iOS 7. They took away the feature to try to make things simpler, but it's actually quite irritating. I miss the audio sources selection as well.

    EDIT: This can be done on iOS 7. See my text below for directions.

    Sorry, the thread had not been refreshed and I didn't see your post until after I quoted.

    Thank you. I wasn't sure if maybe I was missing something or not.

    What about something like this?

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00490OVM0/ref=mw_dp_mdsc?dsc=1

    You would need to add a USB to cigar lighter adapter (if you don't already have one) and a 3.5mm Female-Female STEREO audio jack adapter, both available from Radio Shack.

    Or, perhaps there is a car charger dock that also has a built-in audio jack. I couldn't find one via a quick search. But that might be a problem with your LifeProof case, as most dock chargers are designed for a phone with no case or paper thin case. And if you don't like unscrewing the headphone jack several times per day, I'm sure you'll hate taking the phone out if the case that frequently!

    No, correct thread. I'm offering up alternatives to using the LifeProof waterproof connector for wired headphones. His problem was disconnecting them from the LifeProof case. This way, be won't need to use the LifeProof wired connector all the time.

    Are you talking about Control Center?

    I was talking about the music selection options that used to be in the music app.

    But you got me thinking, and I remembered that the what the OP wants actually can be done through Control Center. Thanks for reminding me. :)

    @cdicesari, to change sources on iOS 7, you'll need to launch Control Center. Click on the AirPlay icon and then you'll see this screen which will allow you to change sources.

    Is that a 5s or jailbreak option? It's not on my 5.

    It's a feature that is only supported on the iPhone 5/5c/5s. Since the OP has an iPhone 4S, this feature is not available.

    It's stock. It should be on your iPhone 5. You should see if you are connected to Bluetooth speakers or have headphones plugged in while listening to music.

    Yeah, you have to have more than one source available for it to show up (Bluetooth speakers, headphones or Apple TV).
