Polestar has supported Android Automotive for a long time and comes with Google built in, but not CarPlay, so it will be a welcome step for current and potential owners. The Polestar 2 was marketed as “the world’s first car with a built-in Android operating system,” which included route planning, music via Spotify, and more.

CarPlay allows users of all major Apple iPhones, including iPhone 12 and iPhone 13, to integrate services such as Apple Music, Maps, Phone and more. with your car’s infotainment system.

At WWDC 2022, the company unveiled the next generation of CarPlay, which will feature a host of new metrics spread across your car’s dashboard. The feature won’t arrive in time for the iPhone 14, but compatible vehicles are expected to be announced next year.
