Apple CarPlay

The ultimate copilot.

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 right there 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 re-imagined for the car, so you can use them while your eyes and hands stay where they belong.

Siri

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 available on your dashboard. CarPlay can predict where you’re going using addresses from your email, text messages, contacts and calendars. You can search along your route for nearby service stations, restaurants, cafés and more. Or just use your voice: “Siri, where’s the closest service station?”

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 read, reply to and send text messages for you, so you never have to look at your iPhone while driving. Just say “Siri, tell Jess I’ll be there in 20 minutes”, and it’s done. CarPlay can also play audio messages through the car’s speakers.

Music

All your music. Beautifully arranged.

Access all your content from iTunes, your Apple Music subscription and additional audio apps using your car’s built-in controls. Search by artist, album or song. See what’s playing and what’s up next. You can ask Siri to play your favourite song by Kanye, or act as your personal DJ.

Invite more apps along for the ride.

CarPlay supports other apps on your iPhone — like your favourite audio, messaging and voice 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 personalise your experience by rearranging exactly how your apps appear in CarPlay through Settings on your iPhone.
