With each passing year, tech is becoming a bigger and bigger part of people's lives. And for most folks, the most essential technology they use on a day-to-day basis is their iPhone. But while having your phone on hand is great for keeping updated on news, weather, and of course, your favorite apps, it's never a good idea to use your phone while you're out on the road. Luckily, many new Kia models now feature Apple CarPlay, an intuitive new connectivity technology that helps you seamlessly pair your iPhone to your vehicle so you can safely use your favorite tech on the go!

What is Apple CarPlay?

Apple CarPlay is a connectivity technology that allows your phone to easily pair with your Kia car's onboard UVO infotainment system. Allowing you to use apps like Apple Music, Podcasts, Maps, and even voice commands for functions like calling and texting, Apple CarPlay helps you stay connected to your phone without distracting you from the road ahead.

How do I set up Apple CarPlay on my Kia?

  1. On your vehicle's KIA UVO infotainment system, push the SETUP button, then navigate through that menu to find either the CONNECTIVITY or PHONE PROJECTION option
  2. Select the Enable Apple CarPlay option from this menu
  3. Plug your phone into your vehicle's USB port via the lighting cable and accept the prompts on your phone to start Apple CarPlay.
