SiriusXM Radio gets CarPlay support in latest update

Culture

SiriusXM Radio has updated its iOS app today, adding CarPlay support, 9to5Mac reports. Now, Apple’s CarPlay users can listen to the major streaming service while on the road, including all channels and on-demand episodes.

Only BMWs have wireless CarPlay support, however, and owners of any other car will need to use wired CarPlay receivers. To run CarPlay, users can retrofit their cars with aftermarket receivers like Alpine’s wireless receiver, the iLX-107. The receiver supports CarPlay through Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and has a 7-inch touchscreen with access to all of Apple’s apps.

SiriusXM Radio users can also swipe to tune channels up and down as part of the update. The app is available for download from the App Store now.
