Audi today announced that Apple Music will be available directly in the infotainment systems of a large number of its vehicles via a software update.


Apple Music‌ integration will give Audi owners the ability to access their personal Apple Music‌ library directly in their car’s Multimedia Interface (MMI) screen, taking advantage of the in-vehicle data connection, without the need for Bluetooth, wired connection or Apple CarPlay.

To activate ‌Apple Music‌, users must open the Apple Music‌ app on the Audi infotainment system, follow the onscreen instructions to sign in with their Apple ID, and enter the verification code sent to their phone. Christian Zorn, Head of Product Marketing at Audi, said:

The integration of Apple Music into the audio infotainment system is the next step in the collaboration between Audi and Apple. For our clients, this means that we provide them with direct access to their personal listening experience. This is our understanding of the premium in-car digital experience. At Audi, we are systematically leading the car’s digital transformation and we are convinced that the interior is increasingly evolving into a third living space.

Available in Europe, North America and Japan, the “Apple Music” integration will be rolled out on “nearly all” existing 2022 Audis via an automatic over-the-air update, and will come as standard on many new Audis. Cellular data streaming is charged via a data package available from Cubic-Telekom in Europe, and the first three gigabytes are free.

Audi isn’t the first carmaker to integrate Apple Music‌ directly into its infotainment system, as Porsche first announced the feature in 2019 before expanding to other services like Apple Podcasts. Likewise, Mercedes began rolling out the Apple Music integration system as of the summer of last year.
