You know it’s a slow news week — at least so far — when you get an embargoed release from Infiniti mentioning software updates that will now enable wireless Apple CarPlay on vehicles that came from the factory without that functionality and find it worth a post.
The meat of the release is pretty straightforward. Infiniti is now offering customers the chance to update certain 2020 and 2021 model-year vehicles for no cost and with no other conditions attached.
If you drive a 2020 or 2021 Q50, Q60, QX50, and QX80, you can go to your local Infiniti dealer and get the upgrade.
“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 first offered wireless Apple CarPlay on the QX55 earlier this year.
The free upgrade is available until March 2022.
