Standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ in the 2021 Mazda6

Despite having both features in the 2020 model, the 2021 Mazda6 will now come with standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. Previously, both features were only available at the Touring trim level, it will now be offered on all models. These features allow for drivers and passengers to port their mobile device onto the vehicle’s 8-inch touchscreen display to play music, use navigation, and receive or send information in a safe manner.

How Does Wireless Apple CarPlay™ Work?

One major benefit to the 2021 Mazda6 is the wireless Apple CarPlay™ feature. This is a new option for any Mazda model and allows drivers to skip steps to attaining the feature. To use it inside a vehicle previously, drivers would have to utilize a Bluetooth® connection as well as receive Wi-Fi access at the same time.

Though some vehicles provide built-in Wi-Fi access, the 2021 Mazda6 will allow the wireless functionality at the Grand Touring trim level. This means you won’t have to set up any back-door routes to receive the feature, nor handle any wires to hook it up immediately. Simply connect it to the system and you’re ready to go!
