Apple CarPlay

The ultimate co-pilot.

Available on selected 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 directly 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 plug in 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. It also works with your car’s controls — knobs, buttons 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 comes to your dashboard — complete with turn-by-turn directions. CarPlay can also predict where you most likely want to go using addresses from your email, text messages, contacts and calendars.

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 your artists, songs, playlists and your Apple Music membership using your car’s built-in controls. Or just tell Siri what you’d like to hear. CarPlay also supports additional audio apps that you’ve downloaded to your iPhone for enjoying podcasts, music and radio.

Invite more apps along for the ride.

CarPlay supports other apps on your iPhone — like Audiobooks, Podcasts and Stitcher. Apps developed by car manufacturers are also supported, so you can control more of your car’s features without ever leaving CarPlay.1
