Once this new update rolls out, all new Hyundai and Kia models will offer wireless connectivity for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Furthermore, since the 10.25-inch system also supports over the year updates (OTA), we expect Hyundai and Kia to roll out the new update for the existing users as well.

The 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment comes in Hyundai models such as the i20, Creta, 2023 Verna, Alcazar, Tucson and Ioniq 5 and in Kia models such as the Seltos, Sonet, Carens and EV6. Users may soon get the option to download and install the update right from their infotainment system.
Is Wireless Connectivity Useful?
Even though the wireless connectivity of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay doesn’t change the functionality and user experience, it brings a lot of convenience. Once set up properly, your smartphone automatically connects with the infotainment system and connects Android Auto in case of Android and Apple CarPlay in case of iOS without you needing to even press a button. Furthermore, since most Hyundai and Kia cars offer wireless phone charger, it enables you to use wireless phone charger while your phone is connected to the infotainment system.
