Apple CarPlay

The ultimate copilot.

Available on select cars, CarPlay is a smarter, safer way to use your iPhone in the car. CarPlay takes the things you want to do with your iPhone while driving and puts them right on your car’s built-in display. You can get directions, make calls, send and receive messages, and listen to music, all in a way that allows you to stay focused on the road. Just connect your iPhone and go.

Control with a word. Or a touch. Or a twist.

CarPlay features Siri voice control and is specially designed for driving scenarios. CarPlay also works with your car’s controls — knobs, buttons, touchpad, or touchscreen. And the apps themselves have been reimagined for the car, so you can use them while your eyes and hands stay where they belong.

Voice

To activate Siri voice control, just press and hold the voice control button on the steering wheel.

Touch

If your CarPlay-equipped vehicle has a touchscreen, you can use it to control CarPlay.

Knobs and Controls

CarPlay also works with the knobs, dials, or buttons in the car. If it controls your screen, it controls CarPlay.

Maps

Let your iPhone show you the way.

The power and simplicity of Apple Maps is now available on your dashboard. CarPlay can predict where you most likely want to go using addresses from your email, texts, contacts, and calendars. You can also search along your route for nearby gas stations, restaurants, coffee shops, and more. Maps will even estimate how long the detour will take.

Phone

The road is calling.

Make calls, return missed calls, and listen to voicemail. Siri can help you do all of these things. All you have to do is ask.

Messages

Reading and writing is now listening and dictating.

Siri can send, read, and reply to your text messages for you, so you never have to look at your iPhone while driving. CarPlay plays audio messages too, so you can hear from people in their own voices.

Music

All your music. Beautifully arranged.

Access all of your content from iTunes, your Apple Music membership, and additional audio apps using your car’s built-in controls. Or just tell Siri what you’d like to hear. You can also enjoy For You and Browse from Apple Music — with songs, artists, and albums handpicked by experts, plus selections based on your preferences — right on your display.

Invite more apps along for the ride.

CarPlay supports other apps on your iPhone — like your favorite audio and messaging apps. Apps developed by car manufacturers are also supported, so you can control more of your car’s features without ever leaving CarPlay.1 You can even personalize your experience by rearranging exactly how your apps appear in CarPlay through settings on your iPhone.
