CarPlay is a handy feature, one that Apple has made sure is in a lot of different vehicles on the road these days. But, for some customers, going wireless would make it even better. Which is why it’s good to see that some Infiniti-branded automobiles will be picking up a free upgrade to support that feature.
Today, Infiniti has announced that it is offering up complimentary upgrades to wireless Apple CarPlay. The company says that most model-year 2020 and newer automobiles will pick up the free upgrade. To make it happen, owners of eligible Infiniti vehicles need to visit their local dealership in the United States to go through the process.
Infiniti’s announcement says that the 2020 and 2021 Q50 sports sedan, Q60 sports coupe, QX50 midsize crossover, and the QX80 full-size luxury SUV are all eligible for the free upgrade.
From today’s announcement:
Customer satisfaction has always been one of the highest priorities at INFINITI, and we are pleased to bring wireless Apple CarPlay to owners of the majority of our 2020 and 2021 vehicles,” said Jeff Pope, group vice president, INFINITI Americas. “More than 80 percent of luxury vehicle owners use Apple products, and now these INFINITI owners can go wireless while using CarPlay® in their vehicle.
Infiniti is not a stranger to wireless CarPlay. The company’s latest models, the 2022 QX55 and the QX80 both launched with support for the feature. But, for owners of vehicles that aren’t that old at all, this will be a welcomed upgrade.
