Does Buick Have Apple CarPlay?

Buick Apple Carplay

 

Apple CarPlay is a great complement – or even alternative – to the traditional infotainment system in your vehicle. It lets you connect your iPhone to your car (either via cable or wirelessly), and channel features to your car like music, navigation, messages, and even the news. It’s been designed with safety in mind, reading out messages and directions so you don’t have to take your eyes off the Houston roads.

 

 

Apple CarPlay isn’t currently available on all Buick models, but you can find it on the following vehicles:

When Did Buick Get Apple CarPlay?

Although Apple CarPlay was announced in March 2014, it initially debuted only on extremely limited models. In fact, CarPlay didn’t become widely available on most new vehicles until two years later in 2016. Today, nearly all car manufacturers implement some kind of compatibility with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto with their new models.

Buick first introduced Apple CarPlay in 2016, when wide release became more common; the first models to support the system were the 2016 LaCrosse and the Chinese-only Excelle and Regal sedans. CarPlay compatibility was introduced in the Encore and Envision in 2017, and in the Enclave in 2018.

Advantages of Apple CarPlay with Buick

CarPlay has been designed by Apple to work seamlessly with your Buick, letting you access a world of information and entertainment while staying safe at the same time. Here are some of the features you can expect in a CarPlay-compatible Buick:

  • Navigation: hit the streets of Porter with ease. Pick your favorite maps app, from Apple Maps to Waze, and enjoy turn-by-turn voice directions and 3D-modeled maps.
  • Messages: Siri will read out your new messages, and you can dictate and send messages with the touch of a button.
  • Music CarPlay supports all the most popular music apps – Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon Music, Play Music, and more – as well as podcasts and audiobooks.
  • Phone: Safely take and receive calls through your car’s audio system.
  • Your apps: If you have a third-party app on your phone with CarPlay compatibility, you’ll automatically see it on your CarPlay home screen – no need to add it separately.
