Polestar Apple CarPlay Support Slated for Spring Release
Electric vehicle maker and Volvo subsidiary Polestar has once again shared its plans for Apple CarPlay release, announcing that it expects to add support for the feature in its cars this spring as originally planned, Tesla North is reporting.
We are “excited to be in the final development stages” for Apple CarPlay and that “it’s coming soon,” added the automaker, which delayed Apple CarPlay release from summer to the fall of 2021, and then again to spring 2022. The company also noted that the CarPlay connection will be wired via USB only with no wireless support.
Yes, it’s coming soon! We’re excited to be in the final development stages.
