USB power will turn off with the radio, i.e., when you open any front door.

You can still use your Ipod, but connect it via USB. Sync will index the same way the Ipod does locally. I'm not sure on cover art on Sync 2, though. If it works, this would be the way to do it, if it doesn't, then you need to wait for the next car (with yet a newer version of Sync).

If you don't want to use your Ipod, any thumb drive will do - it only needs to be formatted in FAT32 (not NTFS), and your ID3 tags need to in order - because that's what Sync uses for indexing. No need to shell out for USB3 (at least for the in-car use), though it may be more convenient when copying to the drive.

No, different shape, completely different connector and vehicle network. The new radio (and Mk3.5) uses CAN bus, the predecessor does not.

Bluetooth is in a separate box, Ford used to sell retrofit kits.

You need the "y-cable" (Apple Dock or Apple Lightning to USB AND 3.5mm, just as the user manual states under connecting an Ipod ...), or a software update to your connectivity (Bluetooth and USB ) box. Connecting a cable from the phone jack to the car's Aux jack could also work, but I'm not sure what the Iphone does.
