Apple Car Play
CarPlay is a smarter, safer way to use your iPhone while you drive. You can get directions, make calls, send and receive messages, and enjoy your favourite music. All on your car’s built-in display. And CarPlay now features more app categories and custom wallpapers for your CarPlay Dashboard.
The power and simplicity of Apple Maps is available in your car. CarPlay can predict where you’re going using addresses from your email, text messages, contacts and calendars. And with the detailed city experience, you can explore cities with unprecedented detail for roads, neighbourhoods, trees, buildings and more. Visit amazing 3D landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge in both the day and dark mode maps. One‑tap access to your go‑to and must‑see destinations also helps you find more to see and do when you get there — whether you’re searching for points of interest, driving to a favourite restaurant or looking for nearby petrol stations.
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.
You can send audio messages with Siri on iOS and CarPlay, so you never have to look at your iPhone while driving. And you can have Siri announce your incoming messages, then simply speak to reply. You can also ask Siri to share your ETA with someone from your contacts list while navigating with Apple Maps, to help keep everyone who needs to know in the know.
Access all your content from 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 Arcade Fire, act as your personal DJ or stream one of more than 100,000 live radio stations.
The Calendar app gives you a quick, simple view of the day ahead while you’re on the go. And if you have a meeting, you can just tap to get directions or dial in, using your car’s speakers and microphones to keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
Control with a word. Or a touch. Or a twist.
CarPlay with Siri voice control 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.
To activate Siri voice control, just press and hold the voice control button on the steering wheel.
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.
