Wireless Apple CarPlay Support Is Coming To More Hyundai Cars

Wireless CarPlay support is coming to more Hyundai cars, meaning iPhone owners will no longer have to connect a cable to be able to project their apps onto the in-car display.

The same wireless capabilities are also coming to Android Auto, too.

This is according to a Chasing Cars report which notes that “until now, Hyundai, Kia and Genesis models fitted with integrated satellite navigation have never provided buyers with the wireless version of Apple CarPlay or Android Auto due to a years-long scuffle with a major smartphone software manufacturer.”

The report goes on to say that the issue revolved around what would happen when someone pressed the “navigation” shortcut. The issue only affected those with satellite navigation installed. An agreement has now been made, and even older cars will be upgraded to include wireless CarPlay and Android Auto support if they have the required hardware.

However, the resolution means that new Hyundai models with integrated satellite navigation will now have wireless Apple CarPlay and wireless Android Auto – and even some existing cars already on the road will be eligible for an update due to backwards compatibility.

There’s currently no confirmation of which vehicles will be upgraded, but the next-generation Kona will be one of those that will be upgraded if they’re delivered before Q4 2023.
