Ford today is releasing a software update to its model-year 2016 vehicles with SYNC 3 so that the entire fleet will be able to use Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
You can get the update in three different ways:
- by downloading over the air for Wi-Fi-connected vehicles
- by bringing your car to a Ford dealership
- by downloading the update to a USB drive then manually plugging into the car
Android Auto is supported for smartphones running Android 5.0 and higher, while CarPlay is compatible with iPhone 5 or later, updated to iOS 7.1 or higher.
