GM to drop Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support in its upcoming EV cars: Report
In the future, General Motors will stop supporting Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in its electric vehicles. The business reportedly made the announcement via a news release, per a story by Motor 1. According to the story, the adjustments won’t happen immediately but rather over time.
However, the automaker will continue to support both presently offered EVs and combustion-powered cars with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. According to the narrative, the upcoming GM Blazer EV will drop the support while the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV will keep the features. The update will also be implemented for the Cadillac Celestiq, GMC Sierra EV, and Chevrolet Equinox EV.
The report says that the company is working closer with Google to use its in-house software with advanced systems on upcoming models. ‘GM states that future advanced driver-assist systems and complex vehicle displays will be better implemented using in-house software versus a phone passthrough,’ it says.
