We answer that question and tell you more about how to use Apple CarPlay below, or you can watch the video above!

How to Connect Your Apple Phone to the Toyota Highlander

How to Use Apple CarPlay in Your Toyota Highlander

Having Apple CarPlay in your Toyota Highlander makes using a variety of your iPhone functions and apps easier. You can accept calls and send texts, use navigation apps like Apple Maps or Waze, and use Apple Music or third-party music streaming apps, like Spotify! You can control these different apps through the responsive touchscreen display or use the voice control function. Just use the steering wheel controls to ask Siri for directions, to play a song, or make a call to one of your contacts. Siri can even read off texts to you in your 2020 Toyota Highlander! Plus, you can switch between Apple CarPlay and the other programs on your Toyota Highlander's infotainment system, which means you can follow directions while still listening to the radio.
