I just bought a 2015 Enclave Leather five days ago. On the test drive, the radio/tuner worked great - I had to turn it off to listen to the car. However, on my way home from the dealer, I noticed that I couldn't get a station. There is static, but no station. I only live about 3 miles from the station tower. What is this newby to do?

Also, after researching the user manual, I discovered the compatibility of apple phones only goes to iPhone 5. Can the computer be updated?

Welcome to the forum. If the radio was working during the test drive, why shouldn't it work now? The iPhone model shouldn't matter unless it was connected using Carplay.

From the owners manual: Radio Reception Frequency interference and static can occur during normal radio reception if items such as phone chargers, vehicle convenience accessories, and external electronic devices are plugged into the accessory power outlet. If there is interference or static, unplug the item from the accessory power outlet. FM FM signals only reach about 16 to 65 km (10 to 40 mi). Although the radio has a built-in electronic circuit that automatically works to reduce interference, some static can occur, especially around tall buildings or hills, causing the sound to fade in and out.
AM The range for most AM stations is greater than for FM, especially at night. The longer range can cause station frequencies to interfere with each other. Static can also occur when things like storms and power lines interfere with radio reception. When this happens, try reducing the treble on the radio. SiriusXM Satellite Radio Service If equipped, SiriusXM Satellite Radio Service provides digital radio reception. Tall buildings or hills can interfere with satellite radio signals, causing the sound to fade in and out. In addition, traveling or standing under heavy foliage, bridges, garages, or tunnels may cause loss of the SiriusXM signal for a period of time. Cell Phone Usage Cell phone usage, such as making or receiving phone calls, charging, or just having the phone on may cause static interference in the radio. Unplug the phone or turn it off if this happens. Multi-Band Antenna The multi-band antenna is located on the roof of the vehicle. This type of antenna is used with the AM/FM radio, as well as OnStar and the SiriusXM Satellite Radio Service System, if the vehicle has these features. Keep this antenna clear of snow and ice build up for clear radio reception. If the vehicle has a sunroof, the performance of the radio system may be affected if the sunroof is open. Loading items onto the roof of the vehicle can interfere with the performance of the radio system and, if the vehicle has this feature, OnStar. Make sure the multi-band antenna is not obstructed.
I put in a dashcam in the rear window, the range on my remote keyless entry went down to zero, removed it, back to normal. Any other electronics can and will interfere with signals, especially some USB adapters.
Have you tried the Apple Carplay? I don't think the 10 was around during 2015 production so it may work even though it isn't listed. My 5 works well with Bluetooth but I think my older Ipod needs to be plugged into the USB for it to work with Apple carplay.
