How to customize the Apple CarPlay screen
If you are using Apple CarPlay with your iPhone, you might be wondering how to change the order of icons on your car infotainment screen. The solution is buried ins the Settings application. We will explain how to configure it.
Right now you can only personalize CarPlay on your iPhone, not on your car's touchscreen. It will prevent you from having an accident because you are playing with the touch screen. Additionally, you can only customize CarPlay after pairing your iPhone with a vehicle that supports it .
To get started, tap the gear icon on your iPhone to open "Settings."
Scroll down and press " General ".
Press "CarPlay ".
On l 'Next screen, tap the vehicle for which you want to configure the CarPlay display. Each vehicle listed may support its own configuration of icons. If the desired vehicle is not in the list (and it is compatible with CarPlay ), you will first need to link youriPhone.
Press "Personalize in the settings of your vehicle brand."
Then you will see a long list of CarPlay compatible apps on your iPhone. Here you can tap and hold any app to drag it and rearrange the order. The apps on your vehicle's CarPlay screen will reflect the order in which they appear in this list.
For example, let's say you organize the apps as shown in the image below on your iPhone.
Your vehicle 's CarPlay display would then look like the layout shown in the image below. Of course, the appearance will vary depending on screen size and resolution.
If you want to remove an app icon from the CarPlay screen, tap the red minus sign (-) next to it in the list on your iPhone. The app will move to the area at the bottom under "More apps ". Apps that don't have a sign less red cannot be removed from the CarPlay screen.
To add an app from the "More apps " section to the CarPlay display area, tap the sign plus green (+) next to it in your iPhone list.
If you ever get mixed up and want to reset the app icon arrangement to their default state, just hit "Reset " in the corner upper right.
When you have finished the configuration, you can exit "Settings " and the chosen icon layout will be defined. If your iPhone is linked to your vehicle, you should see the results instantly.
Otherwise, all you need to do is link your vehicle to CarPlay , and you will see the new arrangement the next time you use it. Leadz in complete safety!
