New over-the-air update for Volvo cars now available, adding Apple® CarPlay® support

Volvo Cars’ latest software update to all Volvo cars with Google built in, enabling a variety of feature and quality improvements, is underway.

One of the new functionalities included is the rollout of Apple CarPlay, enabling iPhone users to feel even more at home in their Volvo car.

Users can now connect their iPhone via USB to their Volvo car and access apps from their iPhone, wherever Apple CarPlay is available.

Volvo Cars has been offering OTA updates regularly, and it is a key technology for delivering on the company’s ambition of making customers’ cars continuously better.

With over-the-air updates, Volvo Cars aims to make ownership easier and more flexible. It enables customers to enjoy the latest software and new, updated features on their Volvo car via a few clicks on their in-car screen.

“Through over-the-air updates, we can make sure that our customers can enjoy new features quickly and easily,” said Sanela Ibrovic, head of connected experience at Volvo Cars. “It also means that a new Volvo car continues improving even after it has left the factory.”

Volvo Car Canada has previously announced that all 2023 models will be eligible for over-the-air updates; this is important progress in line with the company’s ambition of making its customers’ cars better over time.

Note to editors
