Since Apple CarPlay has been introduced, you may be curious about whether or not your car is equipped with this new safety feature. Most automobile manufacturers have already started incorporating Apple CarPlay into many of their upcoming models. If the make and model you desire is not in the list below, contact the automobile manufacturer and ask if they plan to include this feature in a future model you wish to purchase.

Keep in mind that most dealerships will install anything you want into the car to finalize a sale — this includes aftermarket equipment (for a fee, of course).

Keep in mind other car manufacturers such as BMW, Dodge, Scion, Toyota, and many others plan to offer Apple CarPlay in future models, but have not yet released information on which models they plan to include.

Not to worry. If you have already purchased a new car and it is not equipped with Apple CarPlay, you can always have an aftermarket stereo installed that does support this new feature. When picking out an aftermarket stereo make sure the packaging sports the Apple CarPlay logo. Big name manufacturers such as Alpine, Kenwood, and Pioneer have already started releasing models that include Apple CarPlay. Check with the stereo manufacturer to see if the stereo you wish to purchase is supported.
