In 2014, Apple introduced CarPlay to integrate iOS devices into the car better and better connect the car radio. Meanwhile, customers have various choices in buying an aftermarket Apple CarPlay Media Receiver.

The Apple CarPlay Media Receiver

Apple sees CarPlay as a smarter, safer way to use your iPhone in the car. Anything you want to do while driving with your iPhone, you do with CarPlay on the screen of your car. It’s easy to get directions, make calls, send and receive messages, listen to music, and still focus on the road.

Theoretically, Apple CarPlay is just a user interface for the iPhone designed to ensure that you can use iPhone features while driving.

In most cases, the car manufacturers have integrated CarPlay, or CarPlay can be easily integrated using a car radio/infotainment system.

From today’s perspective, cars built before 2016 are difficult to retrofit, which means using an accessory.

However, Apple CarPlay does not support all iPhone apps. An opening took place with the integration of Spotify and WhatsApp, and from iOS 12, we can finally use navigation apps from third parties like Google Maps or Waze.

Functions of Apple CarPlay:

  • You can call contacts and send messages by voice command or tap.
  • Navigation is possible using Apple Maps.
  • You can listen to music via iTunes or Spotify, and Amazon Audible and AudioBooks will entertain you as you drive, too.
  • You can use WhatsApp to send messages.
