The iHeartRadio icon can be easily seen in Honda’s home screen for Apple CarPlay.
IHeartRadio is now live in Apple CarPlay and available in some vehicle models and headend units.
CarPlay debuted in March, and iHeartRadio says the integration is a big step in iHeartRadio’s auto offerings. The company notes it places the iPhone app in the dashboard.
To use, drivers need a CarPlay-enabled infotainment system in the dash, connected to a compatible iPhone that has the iHeartRadio app downloaded onto the device. The integration is live with the iPhone 5.3.1 upgrade in iTunes.
Users can access iHeartRadio’s live radio stations, custom stations and talk show content, and browse more recommended “For You” content based on listener preference.
Several automotive OEMs and aftermarket receiver manufacturers plan to add Apple CarPlay support over the next several months.
