Kia just announced that several different vehicles, ranging from 2014 to 2017 models, will get updated with CarPlay support. And now Ford is going ahead and launching wide ranging support for “iOS in the car.”
The auto manufacturer has officially announced that SYNC 3, its in-car infotainment system and head unit, is now available in its entire 2017 lineup of sedans, SUVs, light trucks, and electric vehicles. With the inclusion of SYNC 3, Ford is also confirming that these vehicles support Apple’s CarPlay — and Google’s Android Auto — right out of the box.
Ford already has a few 2017 vehicles on the market, including the Mustang, Explorer, and Fusion. Later this year, Ford will launch its 2017 lineup for the F-150, Super Duty, Focus, and Edge.
It’s also worth noting that Ford will add CarPlay support to its 2016 lineup of vehicles that are equipped with SYNC 3 as well.
Ford announced earlier this year that it would be adding support for iOS in the car in its 2017 lineup, so this announcement simply seals the deal for the vehicles already available, and which are coming down the pike.
