How to Get iTunes on iPhone to Not Autoplay

I recently bought a car in which I can play music or podcasts on my iPhone. Sometimes when I attach my iPhone via USB, it starts to auto-play, starting with the first song alphabetically in iTunes, even if I don’t want it to. For example, I might want to listen to a podcast or another app on my phone. The first song, alphabetically, on my phone is Aba Daba Honeymoon by Hoagy Carmichael, so every time I attach my phone, this is what I hear:

Trust me when I say the humor of this wears off very quickly.

I have looked all over the web for a solution to this problem, and apparently there is no way to stop this from happening.

So what I have done is create an mp3 that is only 5 minutes of silence, and I named it aaaaaapple_shutup.mp3.

If you are having this same problem, please feel free to download this file and add it to your iTunes.
