CarPlay, or Apple CarPlay is an Apple standard that enables a car radio or head unit to be a display and controller for an iOS device. It is available on iPhone 5 and later models running iOS 7.1 or later.

More than 800 car models come with support for CarPlay, according to Apple.[1] Vehicle owners can add support by installing certain aftermarket vehicle audio products.

Most CarPlay-equipped vehicles connect to iOS devices through a USB connection, while some also allow devices to connect through a wireless connection. Wireless support can also be added through some stereos or aftermarket dongles.
