What is Apple CarPlay®?

Apple CarPlay® enhances your driving experience, making it safer and smarter to use your iPhone. With iOS 13 or later, Apple CarPlay® is displayed on your Kia’s infotainment center making it a single destination to access various iPhone features. Convenient components of Apple CarPlay® you can use while on the road include:

  • Phone: Make or take phone calls and listen to voicemails. Through simple voice commands, you can even access your contacts.
  • Maps: Say or enter a destination or find nearby points of interest. Apple CarPlay™ can also predict future locations you might want to travel to.
  • Messages: Siri can read your texts aloud. To reply, simply dictate a response.
  • Music & Apps: Listen to your favorite albums or podcasts while on the go.

Working as the ultimate co-pilot, you keep your drives simple and hands-free with the Apple CarPlay®.

How Do I Set Up Apple CarPlay® in My Kia?

  1. Start your Kia and then make sure that Siri is turned on.
  2. Connect your iPhone to your car:
    • If your car supports CarPlay via a USB cable, plug in your iPhone using the USB port in your car. The USB port may be labeled with a CarPlay icon or a smartphone icon.
    • If your car supports CarPlay both wirelessly and with a USB cable, plug in your iPhone to the car’s USB port. You’ll receive an alert on your iPhone asking if you want to connect wirelessly during your next drives.
    • If your car only supports wireless CarPlay, press and hold the voice command button on your steering wheel. Make sure that your stereo is in wireless or Bluetooth mode. Then on your iPhone, go to Settings > General > CarPlay and select your car. Check your car’s manual for more information.
