Apple CarPlay With Apple CarPlay, it is easier and safer than ever to make phone calls, access your personal music collection, navigate with your preferred GPS app, and much more, all from the driver’s seat of your vehicle.

The Apple CarPlay pitch is quite simple: when you install Apple CarPlay, the display screen of your vehicle is swapped with that of your iPhone. Even on the road, your iPhone will never be out of reach.

While your car won’t be able to access every single app, an overwhelming amount of popular apps transfer seamlessly with Apple CarPlay, such as Pandora, Spotify, and iHeartRadio. Apple CarPlay features also include touch screen access and voice recognition, via Siri.

This not only makes life much more convenient for drivers, it also decreases the likelihood for drivers to text while driving or engage in other dangerous activities while behind the wheel.

Many newer GM models have Apple CarPlay capability, as well as Android Auto, and for the 2017 model year, all Ford and Lincoln models will be available with this game-changing technology.
