The 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander comes standard with Apple CarPlay on every single trim, regardless of whether you choose the standard 8.0-inch infotainment screen or upgrade to the 9.0-inch version. 
Introduced by Apple in 2014, CarPlay does more than simply stream your iPhone’s music via your vehicle’s speakers. It actually uses Bluetooth and WiFi to allow you to control your iOS device via your vehicle’s infotainment touchscreen—and it’s absolutely vital for modern car owners hoping to cut down on distracted driving. 
And although more and more vehicles are becoming equipped with Apple CarPlay, it’s not (yet) a totally standard feature on all
. Fortunately, the 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander absolutely has Apple CarPlay, and in this quick guide, we’ll go over how to work it!

Does the 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander have Apple CarPlay?

Yes—the 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander comes standard with Apple CarPlay (and the similar system, Android Auto) across all trims, regardless of whether you choose the standard 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen or upgrade to the 9.0-inch version. However, only the larger, upgraded system will allow you to connect your phone wirelessly. 
If you have an older Mitsubishi, however, you may not have access to this service. Apple CarPlay has only been standard on the Outlander since the 2022 model year. For earlier model years, it was only available as an upgraded option, and before 2017, it wasn’t available at all. 

How to enable Apple CarPlay in a 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander

First things first: you must have an iPhone 5 device with iOS 7.1 or newer in order to take advantage of CarPlay. Once you’ve confirmed that you’ve got the right smartphone—equipped with the proper software—follow these simple steps to enable CarPlay:
  • Ensure both CarPlay and Siri are enabled on your mobile device
  • Enable the “Press Home for Siri” option under “Siri & Search” in your iPhone’s settings
  • If your Mitsubishi has an 8.0-inch touchscreen, connect your iPhone to your Outlander’s USB port using an Apple-approved Lightning-to-USB cable
  • If your Mitsubishi has a 9.0-inch touchscreen, sync your phone to your infotainment system via your vehicle’s Bluetooth and WiFi capabilities 
  • Accept Apple CarPlay terms and conditions on your infotainment touchscreen
  • Touch “Allow” on your iPhone when prompted
And that’s it! Within a few moments, your Apple device’s screen will launch on your Outlander’s infotainment screen!
