Apple CarPlay Compatibility

As of April 2015, only Ferrari has vehicles with CarPlay. The $198,000 Ferrari California T and the $295,999 Ferrari FF have shipped with CarPlay on board.

U.S deliveries of the Volvo XC90 will begin in May 2015, but CarPlay isn’t expected to be available until November. At that point, owners will be able to return to the dealership for a software update.

Hyundai has built cars to run on Apple CarPlay but waited to activate the software because of bugs.

Automakers bear legal liability for whatever goes wrong, so some automakers are asking Apple to share a portion of the risk. Luxury brands that use knobs and touchpads need time to re-engineer these controllers to work with CarPlay.
