The new My Porsche app now has CarPlay integration ahead of Apple’s planned overhaul.
Porsche vehicle owners can download the update through their app, which adds several features related to CarPlay. App integration, entertainment, lighting, comfort and audio functions are now controllable via Apple CarPlay. The automaker said users can use CarPlay and the app to do more, including adjusting lights, controlling in-car temperature, changing radio stations and more.
Siri voice control allows hands-free control of the aforementioned features, and there are wellness modes like Refresh, Warm Up and Relax that can be activated this way. It’s worth noting that the update isn’t the next-gen experience Apple promised.
Porsche owners can update their My Porsche app by scanning a QR code in the PCM. New CarPlay features will be made available as they become available. The Porsche Cayenne will be the first to benefit from the new functionality, with other models to follow.
