What Is Apple CarPlay?

Apple CarPlay gives you direct access to the contents of your iPhone from the infotainment touchscreen. That means you don’t have to look at your phone to catch up on messages, calls, directions, and more. You can also import your favorite music and podcasts or stream Apple Music without looking at your phone at all.

How Do I Set It Up?

You can enable Apple CarPlay on your phone in the Settings section, although your phone must be an iPhone 5 or later and running iOS 7.1 or later. Many Lexus models feature wireless Apple CarPlay as a standard or available feature, but you can also connect it physically with a USB cable. Once you’re connected, you can use natural language commands with Siri by pressing the Push-to-Talk button on the dashboard or saying, “Hey, Siri!”

What Apps Can I Use?

The classic Apple Navigation app integrates smoothly with Apple CarPlay, but you can choose from a variety of apps, including Google Maps, Waze, and TomTom. Calls and messages are intuitive to respond to, with texts being read aloud at the push of a button. Even the Calendar app moves over, giving you an immediate summary of your day at a glance.
