If you own a new car in the Evergreen area, it’s probably equipped with Apple CarPlay functionality. Apple CarPlay is a popular technological feature that allows you to connect your iPhone to your vehicle’s infotainment system. Once connected, you can listen to music, make and take phone calls, send and receive texts, get directions, and even read the news! Setting up Apple CarPlay is a simple thing, and allows you to utilize voice commands while keeping your eyes on the road, and your hands on the wheel. Ready to get started on setting up Apple CarPlay? The service team at Lee Motor Company is ready to help guide you through the process below, and you can contact us with any questions about the process.



How to Connect Apple CarPlay

It’s quite easy to set up Apple CarPlay to your vehicle, once you’ve double-checked that your car comes equipped with the functionality. Just follow these simple steps:

  1. In addition to checking that your vehicle is compatible with CarPlay, make sure that the technology is available in the Brewton area as some regions don’t support it.
  2. Start up your vehicle, and make sure Siri is turned on your iPhone.
  3. Connect your iPhone via USB cable to your infotainment system, using a designated USB port.
  4. If your car supports wireless CarPlay, a newer and less common feature, then press and hold the voice-command button on your steering wheel. On your iPhone, go to Settings → General → CarPlay, tap Available Cars, then select your vehicle. Make sure your car radio is in Bluetooth or wireless mode as you do this or your phone won’t be able to find it.
  5. You’re all set! You should be directed through any remaining steps on your phone.

How to Update Apple CarPlay

Apple CarPlay is often eligible for updates to refine the technology and function even better with your iPhone. If you want to update your CarPlay software, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings > General, and tap CarPlay.
  2. Choose your car, truck, or SUV.
  3. You can also add or delete apps and icons at this time. You can also drag an app icon to change the other.
