Ford has rolled out Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to its 2016 models with a SYNC 3 software update that customers can download themselves or acquire from a dealer.
Ford is making available SYNC 3 version 2.2 via the Ford owners website here. Customers with Wi-Fi-enabled vehicles and a Wi-Fi network can set up their vehicle to receive the update automatically.
"Our SYNC 3 software platform was designed to be easy to update so we can get our customers the latest and greatest features, functionally and security enhancements," said Don Butler, executive director, Ford Connected Vehicle and Services. "With over-the-air updates, we can deliver new features to customers in the background while they continue using their vehicles."
