Ford updates its 2016 vehicles to support Android Auto and Apple CarPlay


Android Auto and Apple CarPlay allow users to control many of their smartphone features and apps by using the vehicle's controls.

For a while now, Ford has promised that it would bring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to Sync 3 users in 2016-model-year vehicles. Then your Ford vehicle will periodically connect to the designated WI-Fi network (which means the one whose settings are saved within the vehicle's settings) to check for updates.

Now, thanks to a simple USB update (or by visiting a dealership), you can add Android and Apple's in-car functionality, opening the door to a new interface in your auto.

Retroactively offering this kind of thing to auto owners is a definite change in tone for auto makers, since they typically use these kinds of things as incentives to get people interested in vehicle model updates.

Android Auto is already available on all 2017 models, and this update brings the platform to around 800,000 additional vehicles. Now, Ford has some decent news for 2016 model year owners: CarPlay and Android Auto is now available by way of a free update via Wi-Fi, a USB drive, or by visiting a dealership. Customers with Wi-Fi-enabled vehicles and a Wi-Fi network can set up their vehicle to receive the update automatically.
