So it seems like everywhere I'm seeing that I should have apple carplay on my JLU Sport S uConnect. Problem is, I don't see it. It's not under apps, or anywhere else. Do I have an outdated software or something? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills here. Any thoughts? It does have the 7" display

If you have the 7” upgraded radio, yes, it should have Apple CarPlay. Not sure if it is an app or not though. I believe you may just have to plug in your compatible iPhone with it via USB.i haven’t received my Jeep yet so I can’t confirm that. I ordered a sport S with the upgraded radio due to the fact that it has CarPlay.

If you did not upgrade to the 7 inch uconnect 4 then you do not have this feature available. If you did you will need to download the app I assume. I use Android and needed Android Auto app before I could get this functionality.

It will not show up until you have your iPhone plugged in via USB. There is no CarPlay app, it is native to iOS.

I hadn't even considered trying that. Does it always rely on the USB connection or just the first time? Seems like an odd requirement?!

It must be connected (wired USB) to activate CarPlay. I work in IT and my gut tells me CarPlay would be unable to be reliably transmitted via Bluetooth, hence the requirement for wired connection. Lots of graphics going on with maps, etc.

You will always have to plug it in either via USB or usb-c. It truly awesome though the first time you see Waze up on the big screen. Added bonus of plugging in - it support quick charge so my phone is never low on juice

It’s USB only and does not work with Bluetooth. What I’ve read says that it’s because of the sheer amount of data being transferred is too much for Bluetooth, also it would drain your phone super quickly if not plugged in.

Yes plugging in the USB to your iPhone activates Apple Carplay
