Mazda and Apple CarPlay Make for a Compatible Pairing

These days, staying connected to the things that matter most to us is more important than ever. On top of finding the right car, having the right smartphone that fits seamlessly into your daily routine is a big deal. With the Apple iPhone enjoying more success than it ever has, Mazda has recognized the demand from its customers and as a result, has made Apple CarPlay integration a primary focus in their newer models.

Apple CarPlay Can Be Retroactively Installed in Your Current Mazda

Back in November 2018, Mazda announced that they would be outfitting select vehicles from 2014 and newer with the Mazda Connect infotainment system complete with Apple CarPlay compatibility. The dealer-installed update also came complete with faster-charging 2.1-amp USB ports for Mazda drivers to keep their devices charged at their whim.

No Matter if You're in a Mazda CX-5 or Mazda6, Apple CarPlay is at Your Side

One of the best ways to shake off the doldrums of a long road trip behind the wheel of a Mazda CX-5 or a Mazda6 is connecting your library of music to the vehicle's infotainment system and going to town. Even better, if your Mazda6 or Mazda CX-5 has been upgraded with a Bose sound system, you'll be able to enjoy your iPhone content with theatre-like quality.

What Can Apple CarPlay Do?

Apple CarPlay is a versatile app that allows Mazda drivers to enjoy a diverse lineup of content from their smart devices that they carry with them on a daily basis. Outside of accessing your iTunes library, Apple CarPlay is compatible with a variety of apps including Audible, CBS Radio, MLB At Bat, and Google Maps. You can catch up on your audiobook backlog, listen to your favorite team's radio broadcast in real time, and get directions on the fly.

Suffice it to say; Apple users will have everything they need at their fingertips every time they hit the road in their Mazda vehicle.
