What are Apple CarPlay Apps?

Apple CarPlay is a smartphone integration system that pairs your phone with your vehicle, unlocking a host of features that you won’t get anywhere else.

Here are just a few of the features that cars with Apple CarPlay can utilize:

  • Siri Voice Control
  • Apple Calendar App to manage your daily schedule
  • Apple Maps with immersive 3D images and detailed maps
  • Apple Phone App to never miss an incoming call
  • Apple Messages App to read, reply, and send messages
  • Access to Your Apple Music Subscribed library for all your tunes
