How do I unlock Apple Carplay in a BMW?

If you own a BMW after 2016, you can unlock Apple Carplay in your car, but only if it has Carplay pre-equipment. In this article, we'll guide you through the process of activating Carplay in an EVO-equipped BMW model. The steps are simple, and we're here to help you follow them and benefit from this modern connectivity feature.


Before getting started, it's important to check whether your BMW is pre-equipped for Carplay. To do this, you'll need to provide our service team with your VIN number. If your car is equipped with this feature, you can activate Carplay using a USB key coded to your chassis number. To get started, you'll need to obtain this USB key from an authorized BMW supplier.

Once you have your USB key, insert it into the USB port on the right-hand side of the iDrive controller. This will automatically start the Carplay activation process. In just a few minutes, your car will be equipped with Apple Carplay. In some cases (certain versions), you'll need to connect a BMW cable (supplied by us) between your OBD socket and your Windows computer, enter your personal vehicle code and Carplay will finally be unlocked!

It's important to note that this procedure won't work on BMWs without Carplay pre-equipment, nor on models prior to 2016, so you'll need to install a Carplay module for BMW.

The cost of the USB key varies from supplier to supplier, but on average it's around 250 euros. Make sure you give our team all the information they need to offer you the best solution. Although it may seem an expensive investment, the benefits of Carplay functionality are well worth it.


Activating Carplay in your BMW is a great way to connect safely and conveniently while you're driving. Use the feature to play music, listen to messages, open apps and access the map to guide you. With Carplay, you can make hands-free calls and send voice messages while keeping your eyes on the road.

So, that's all there is to know about unlocking your BMW's Carplay function. We hope you've found this guide useful, and that you can now connect to Apple Carplay safely and conveniently while you're driving. Be sure to follow all the steps carefully, and don't hesitate to ask your BMW Authorized Supplier any questions if you have any concerns. With Carplay, you can enjoy modern technology and convenience.
