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.
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.
Invite more apps along for the ride.
CarPlay supports other apps on your iPhone — like your favorite 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 personalize your experience by rearranging exactly how your apps appear in CarPlay through settings on your iPhone.
Choose your favorite navigation app.
CarPlay supports third-party navigation apps, so you have even more choices to get where you’d like to go.
