How To Turn Off Carplay

    You can now disable Apple CarPlay if you need to add a synced vehicle to the Settings app.

    To turn off CarPlay completely, go to the Content & Personal Restrictions settings.

    CarPlay is again available by connecting the vehicle and enabling the feature.

    Apple CarPlay can be found in many vehicles. It allows drivers to connect an iPhone to their car quickly.

    CarPlay can be very convenient, but you may not wish to use it anymore with your iPhone.

    You can turn off this feature in the Restrictions tab of Settings, or you can forget a synced car.

    The latter will stop CarPlay from activating once you plug it into a relative’s or friend’s car. It will also allow you to continue using your phone in your vehicle.

    There are two ways to disable CarPlay. One is through your Settings. This lets you disconnect only from one vehicle. The other is through your iPhone restrictions to prevent you from connecting to all cars.

    Start the Settings App.

    Scroll to the bottom of the page and select “General.”

    Select “CarPlay” under the “General” settings menu.

    The “CarPlay” menu shows you the vehicles synced from your phone. To disconnect from one vehicle, tap on that option. Selecting a car will bring you to its menu.

    Tap “Forget This Car” on the vehicle menu.

    By tapping “Forget,” confirm that the vehicle will be forgotten. This option allows one car to be overlooked while your iPhone can connect to another.

    You can also permanently disable CarPlay by launching your car’s head unit. While every vehicle (car, SUV or truck, van included) is different, the general idea of CarPlay can be applied to all vehicles. Every car, SUV, truck, van, etc., is another. However, you will usually find the option of disabling connected devices in the device’s settings. If you are still looking for the opportunity, consult your vehicle’s owner manual.
