  • Best Answer:

    To get audio, you need to connect the iPhone to a set of speakers (or your sound system) using the headphone jack, or you can just use the iphone's speaker.
    You can't get audio through VGA because it is just for the video.

  • If you read the full statement:
    "iPhone 5 compatibility requires a free firmware update from Pioneer (available Spring 2013) and the purchase of the CD-IV202AV interface cable kit (sold separately), Apple® Lightning to VGA adapter (sold separately), and Apple Lightning to USB cable (sold separately)."

    That is you need to purchase three things:
    -CD-IV202AV interface cable kit
    -Apple® Lightning to VGA Adapter
    -Apple® Lightning to USB Cable

    The Lightning to VGA adapter will connect between the iPhone and the the CD-IV202AV
    The Lightning to USB Cable will connect between the VGA Adapter (via lightning port) and CD-IV202AV.

    Therefore one would assume the audio is transmitted digitally over the USB
