The ultimate copilot.

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 favorite music. All on your car’s built-in display. And CarPlay now features more app categories and custom wallpapers for your CarPlayDashboard.


Let your iPhone
show you theway.

The power and simplicity of AppleMaps 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, neighborhoods, 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 favorite restaurant, or looking for nearby gasstations.


The road iscalling.

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


Reading and writing is now

listening anddictating.

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 AppleMaps, to help keep everyone who needs to know
in theknow.


All your music.
Beautifully arranged.

Access all your content from your AppleMusic 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 favorite song by ArcadeFire, act as your personalDJ, or stream one of
more than 100,000 live radiostations.


Stay on top of your day

when you’re on theroad.

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 theroad.

Control with a word.

Or a touch. Oratwist.

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 theybelong.


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


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

Knobs and Controls

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

CarPlay supports other apps on your iPhone — like your favorite audio, messaging, and voice apps, along with apps in categories like third-party parking, EV charging, quick food ordering, fueling, and driving task apps. Apps developed by car manufacturers are also supported, so you can control more of your car’s features without ever leaving CarPlay.2 You can personalize your experience by rearranging exactly how your apps appear in CarPlay through settings on your iPhone. And app developers have access to a variety of tools and templates that enable them to provide smarter, safer ways to use iPhone in thecar.
