APPLE CARPLAY®.

Apple CarPlay gives you access to numerous functions and contents on your iPhone while driving your BMW.

You also want to use your iPhone while driving your BMW? The Smartphone Integration Option allows your car to support Apple Play. This gives you access to numerous functions and contents on your iPhone when driving. Your iPhone is conveniently connected to your car by wireless. All the key information is shown in the standard app presentation on the control display. This means Apple CarPlay provides quick and secure access to your personal smartphone apps while driving.

Use Apple CarPlay to telephone while driving, to dictate and send messages or to operate your Smart Home devices. And if there is nothing interesting on the radio, you can find the right station using TuneIn, listen to audio books via the Audible app or play the latest podcasts along with your preferred playlists on Apple Music. All while you are guided to your destination with the aid of Apple Maps, Google Maps or Waze and receive navigation tips from Apple Maps directly in your field of vision on your Head-up Display.

The iPhone apps are operated via the control system of your BMW or conveniently by voice command via Apple Siri. Simply say "Hey, Siri" or press the voice button on the steering wheel to activate the digital voice assistant on your smartphone.
