I think we will see pigs fly first.:rolleyes:

I believe latest is first half 2022, which is gauge and considering it was originally for late this year, not very encouraging. I would have thought CarPlay was a higher priority than XM.

Any news on when we can expect Apple CarPlay? The dealership told me the delay is because we will be getting wireless CarPlay.
VC is very bad at making actionable commitments about deadlines. It uses vague language that initially sounds like a commitment, but when examined critically is not a commitment at all. “Fall of this year”, ”early 2022”, “four or five months”. I wish I could tell Volvo Credit that I’ll make my next payment “sometime soon.”

Dealer ships often use the un official Volvo magic 8 ball … the things they have said over the last year.

Apple car play will come when it comes. It will be buggy at first and then it will slowly get better. (This is from my users magic 8 ball)

My speculation - we will see CarPlay support at the same time our Android Automotive OS is upgraded from the Android 10 base to Android 11, no sooner. Meaning it will be a major update, not a minor one. Why? Android 11 OS is already required for phones to support wireless Android Auto (Google's equivalent of CarPlay), so perhaps this will also be a requirement for wireless CarPlay.

After a great deal of badgering I got this rather nebulous response from Volvo"

"Thank you for contacting Volvo Car USA's Consumer Relations Center.
The CarPlay will be available early 2022 as software update. We hope this information proves helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need further assistance."


I personally doubt that we'll get wireless CarPlay but you never know...
