VIDEO: How to Pair Your Apple iPhone to Your BMW

 

Pairing your Apple iPhone to your BMW is one of the most important tasks that you can do once you drive off the dealership lot. This ensures that you have access to all of the amazing tech features that are offered to you.

How Do You Pair Your iPhone with a BMW?

Pairing your phone is easier than you might think. From the communications menu, scroll down to where it says “Manage Mobile Devices.” Then, you can go to “Connect new device.” You’ll then select to go with Apple CarPlay and follow the next series of prompts. You’ll allow the phone to access your device, ensuring that you can access all of your favorite apps and use Siri for voice control.

You’ll also want to make sure that WiFi is turned on within your iPhone. This ensures that Apple CarPlay can be used inside of your BMW. Simply don’t connect to a specific network as it isn’t necessary. Bluetooth should also be on. If you want to use voice control, ensure that Siri is activated within your phone’s settings, too. Then, go into the general settings to turn CarPlay on. It will show you what cars are available. Be sure that what’s on your car’s screen is what’s shown on your phone’s screen before you select. Your phone will then prompt you to pair it.

Your phone will prompt you to hit “Sync.” Once you do this, the main screen of your phone will also appear on the screen of your BMW. This is when you know that everything has been successfully paired.

What Can You Do With an iPhone and BMW Infotainment?

Once your phone is paired, you will be able to take full advantage of Apple CarPlay. You can stream music, podcasts, and news. You can also use Siri to place phone calls, read your texts, and even respond. All of this is done while you drive down the highway, not having to lift a finger away from the steering wheel.
