First, I apologize if this has already been discussed to death. I did search first, and the only thread I saw dedicated to the topic was from 2016. What, if anything, has Tesla said about whether/when they will support Apple CarPlay? I drove an Audi over the weekend that had it, and it is pretty awesome. I didn't expect it to be a huge factor for me, but it now is. I have been on the fence between waiting for my Model 3 (the April end of my estimate is no longer looking realistic), buying a new BMW or Audi, or buying my current BMW when the lease is up in January. I've now eliminated the prospect of buying my 2014 BMW off lease, because BMWs of 2017 and later have CarPlay... so at a minimum there I'd want a CPO 2017 model, in order to get CarPlay. I was pleasantly surprised that CarPlay even supports Google Music, which I had not expected - I'd figured it would only work for Apple Music. As an iOS+Google user I figured I'd be SOL. I use Google Music daily on my commute, and the ability to have that integrated into a touchscreen in the dash is pretty killer. Reading more about it, I realized that Apple CarPlay and Android Auto impart a certain level of "OTA updates" to non-Teslas. No, the car's software itself can't be updated, but you can and will have new functionality become available to you through CarPlay. For example, if Apple opens up CarPlay to competitor's maps, Google Maps and/or Waze could become available overnight to iOS users with CarPlay. Same thing applies on the Android side.
