Report: CarPlay coming to BMW vehicles later this year

BMW may finally be bringing CarPlay support to at least some of its vehicles, according to a new report at Bimmerpost News. The report notes that the German price list and catalog for the X5M and X6M, which take effect in August, list several new technology options, including a touchscreen LCD and Apple CarPlay. An analysis of the report by 9to5Mac highlights that the translated price list text also reveals the possibility of wireless CarPlay support, although it acknowledges that it’s unclear whether the translation refers to wireless CarPlay or simply standard Bluetooth capabilities independent of CarPlay support. While it’s unclear which specific models will feature CarPlay support, several commenters on the original Bimmerpost News article have pointed to press releases stating that the 3 series will be included with CarPlay to come as an update later in the year.
