Apple Makes Wireless CarPlay Official
Jun 15, 2015

Apple finally formally announced wireless CarPlay, which allows users to connect their iPhone to their CarPlay radio without the need to plug their phone into the radio.

Apple’s Craig Federighi said, we’re ‘pulling the cord in future cars so you can get in the car without taking your phone out of your bag or pocket and experience it effortlessly.’

CarPlay will also now support apps directly from the auto makers so you “can control things in your own car.”

Unfortunately, Federighi, speaking at Apple’s Worldwide Developer’s conference Monday, provided no further details, except that wireless CarPlay will be included in iOS 9. A public Beta of iOS 9 will be available in July.

Wireless CarPlay requires a WiFi connection, rather than Bluetooth, our sources tell us. So it remains to be seen whether the aftermarket will offer a wireless CarPlay ready radio.

Tou our knowledge there are no current aftermarket car radios that support both CarPlay and WiFi.

Certain comments on forums stated that Alpine’s iLX-007 CarPlay radio could support WiFi in the future, but Alpine told us this was not the case.

Parrot’s RNB6 CarPlay/Android Auto ready may support both WiFi and CarPlay, but Parrot has not yet announced a shipping date for the radio.

Dave had exceptional customer service, I have been in and out of Car Tunes trying to figure out prices. I always asked for Dave, Dave was the only gentleman there I wanted to deal with great customer service knew what he was talking about and also wanted to help save the customer money at the same time... You dont find that kind of generasity anymore nowadays. I had 2 Pheonix Gold Ti 10' was at first kinda skeptical about how they would sound when I used to have 3 12' Kickers but after sitting in my new car with new system just absolutely much better than I could have ever pictured it being. Way cleaner sound and just the job was second to none they did a great job... Thank you again Dave and your crew for doing what you do best.!. I will be back to get my indoor speakers done here after the exceptional job that was done on getting the subs done... TJ Patrick
