Last updated

CarPlay is getting it's first major overhaul since its original release with iOS 13 including a new dashboard, new calendar app, and much more.

When hooking up your iPhone with iOS 13 to your CarPlay receiver you are met with an entirely new dashboard. It allows you to view multiple things at once such as a map to one side, your music controls to the right, and still room for smart suggestions like your garage door opener as you arrive home or your next calendar appointment.

Speaking of calendars, there is an entirely new calendar app just for CarPlay.
