We’ve tried 3 or 4 lightning cables, a mixture of Apple, Amazon Basics and Anker. Also tried a brand new anker cable. None of them work reliably. We have to keep, plugging...

    I've been thirsting to have CarPlay at my disposal since it was first announced, but have been waiting for EVs to become more practical. That wait ended this weekend, when I purchased a 2022 Kia EV6. I excitedly plugged in my iPhone 13 mini and noticed the picture wasn't . . . great. After a...

    Changes to Apple Maps via CarPlay on iOS 15 makes accessing features more-dangerous

    I'm using Apple Maps via CarPlay for integrated vehicle navigation. I've had it since iOS 14.x. It works well, and has been great. However a subtle change introduced in iOS15 seems to be a step-backwards in my opinion. Previously, iOS 14 provided a feature where if you wished to mute the...

    Does it drive anyone else crazy that whenever you make an outgoing call from CarPlay, it takes you to the call screen? It's super frustrating when you are trying to follow directions in an area that you don't know particularly well, only to make an outgoing call and have to switch back to...

    i Know with the release of iOS 14.5 Apple Maps has the ability to submit a “Speed Trap”. I’m curious what this actually means?

    CarPlay Apple Music weekly new albums

    I’ve just notice is that in the music app under browse in CarPlay, there was a new music section of the weekly new albums that came out. Now I don’t see it or it’s somewhere else. Anyway we can customize this section to show what we want. Probably not, it’s apple.
