Yes, you can plug in your phone and play music directly off the phone. I have a lifeproof case on my iphone 8plus, so I have to take the case off to plug my phone in. Smaller iphones you shouldn’t have to do that.

Customer review from milwaukeetool.com logo
This product would be great if the radio actually worked. Local FM stations barely come in. Battery charging feature doesn't work. This product would only be useful if you had a mp3 player to use with it. Maybe if they upgraded the antenna where I could actually listen to a FM station it would be useful.

Terrible signal
90% of my work is commercial with steel everything. This radio gets terrible reception in these buildings. The sound is good but not good enough to recommend the radio to anyone. If you have a metal roof, buy something else.

Great sound but Sadly not Bluetooth capable
Awesome radio, I get really good reception and I like that you can put the AAA batteries in and will maintain the clock for you. I don’t know how I did not realize that the radio though is not Bluetooth. Not a complete dealbreaker for me but having to hook my phone directly to it or tablet is sometimes annoying. But other than that the sound is awesome and is definitely cool looking. I recently switched back to Milwaukee tools and I’ve had nothing but good things to say The company has everything I have purchased it is turned out to be solid. This is a great radio just remember it’s not Bluetooth capable and the Bluetooth doesn’t matter to you then it’s the perfect buy.

Had this radio for about a week. Using it as a shop radio. Good sound. Like the bass and treble adjustments. Works well with my iphone and ipod. Will add to the review after I've had it for a little longer

This M18 Jobsite radio by Milwaukee could have a much better radio reception when using the battery pack. There is a huge difference when plugged into an electrical outlet vs using the battery pack. The reception constantly fades in and out which is so disturbing to listen to. I even purchased Milwaukee's best ($) M18 Red Lithium High Demand 9.0 battery, but that doesn't make a difference. At the time of purchase the radio feature wasn't a huge factor for me only because I was planning to stream music using my cell phone, and in doing so using the battery pack it also fades in and out and cracks. The only way this Jobsite radio sounds good is when its plug it into an electrical outlet! As far as the compartment on the top (that stores a cell phone) to me it has several design flaws. 1) It's too narrow for my iPhone 6 Plus with a jacket. 2) The phone jack inside the case should be located at the end not in the center area where an iPhone connects. I actually have to force my cell phone under the connection cable area to make it fit. Without doing so I would not be able to close the compartment lid, which does close very securely. I am not happy with this purchase, even though it has a nice heavy weight and it's easy to move with the handle locations.
