What Is Apple CarPlay?

First released in 2014, Apple CarPlay is a system that brings the iPhone's iOS to car entertainment systems, with Siri voice control, and is designed for driving scenarios. It has many of the same features as your iOS device, such as making phone calls, listening to music, listening to audiobooks, getting directions and receiving messages. All functions are designed to allow the driver to concentrate on the road and make driving safer.

The first car companies to support CarPlay are Mercedes-Benz, Ferrari and Volvo. Up to now, more than 600 mainstream car companies including BMW, Toyota, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai have also successively connected to CarPlay.

In 2014, car companies paid far less attention to in-vehicle systems than they are now, and their configurations such as navigation, communication, music and other functions were jerky and difficult to use, and they did not even have networking capabilities. At this time, the emergence of CarPlay relies on the iPhone, maintaining the consistent characteristics of Apple products that are exquisite and easy to use.

How to Fix Audible CarPlay Issues?

Listening to Audible audiobooks/podcasts in the car with Apple CarPlay is a joy. But when you pay attention to Apple CarPlay, you will find that the number of users in recent years has been far less than before. The reason is that many users experience stuttering, interruptions, etc. when listening to music, audiobooks, podcast or making calls. And it is also a common problem that the iPhone cannot be recognized during use.

Don't worry, for these situations. Please check the following points first.

1. Check if the car is compatible with Apple CarPlay

2. Check if the iPhone system is compatible with Apple CarPlay

3. Check if CarPlay is allowed when locked

4. Check if both the iPhone and the car infotainment system are turned on
