Polestar has today announced that its Polestar 2 now supports CarPlay.
The company stated in a tweet:
The most fun part about driving a Polestar is driving it, but there’s more to it. Our latest over-the-air update for the Polestar 2 comes with Apple CarPlay, allowing Polestar owners with an iPhone to change music, use apps, and communicate through Siri or the infotainment system
Polestar has long supported Android Automotive and comes with Google built-in, but not CarPlay, so this will be a welcome move for current and prospective owners. Polestar 2 was marketed as “the world’s first car with a built-in Android powered operating system” that included route planning, music through Spotify, and more.
At WWDC 2022 the company unveiled the next generation of CarPlay that will feature a huge amount of new metrics spread across the entire dashboard of your car. The feature won’t arrive in time for iPhone 14 but compatible vehicles are expected to be announced next year.
One big EV maker that has left CarPlay out in the cold is Tesla, where your only recourse is this $150 Android tablet hack that brings CarPlay to your Tesla.
