Ford update brings Android Auto and Apple CarPlay to its 2016 fleet

The Verge Friday, 19 May 2017
Ford update brings Android Auto and Apple CarPlay to its 2016 fleetFord today is releasing a software update to its model-year 2016 vehicles so that the entire fleet will be able to use Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Which is awesome news, because I still haven’t forgiven SYNC 3 for butchering Nilay’s name.

You can obtain the update in three ways: by downloading over the air for Wi-Fi-connected vehicles, by bringing your car to a Ford dealership, or by downloading the update to a USB drive then manually plugging into the car. To DIY the update, you’ll need to download the right version for your car from Ford’s owner support website. Android Auto is supported for smartphones running Android 5.0 and higher, while CarPlay is compatible with iPhone 5 or later, updated to iOS 7.1 or higher.

The update today...
