  1. Check Compatibility: Kia Apple CarPlay is only compatible with the iPhone series 5 or later, and the lightning USB connector is required. For best results, keep your phone up to date!
  2. Press the ‘setup’ key on your UVO interface, and then press the ‘connectivity’ touch-screen button. Select Apple CarPlay from the list of options, and make sure it’s turned on.
  3. Return to the home screen and connect your compatible iPhone to your Kia’s USB port. The UVO system will detect your iPhone, and the CarPlay icon will display on your home screen.
  4. From here, you’ll only need to press the Apple CarPlay button to access many of the apps you use on your phone every day. With this feature, you’ll be able to field calls, read and respond to messages, access your music, take advantage of Apple Maps, and a whole lot more.
