How to Turn Off CarPlay on Your iPhone


Apple CarPlay is an intelligent integration technology designed to link your iPhone to your car’s infotainment display. It seamlessly integrates popular iPhone applications such as Maps, Messages, Music, Podcasts, and more onto the dashboard, providing easy and safe access while driving.

Although CarPlay offers convenience, there may be instances where you wish to disable it temporarily or permanently. For example, if you are learning to drive or prefer to concentrate solely on the road, CarPlay might be distracting. Alternatively, you may want to address connectivity issues between your iPhone and your vehicle.

How to Turn Off CarPlay on Your iPhone

Temporarily Disable CarPlay

If you only need to turn off CarPlay temporarily, here are two quick methods:


-Activate Airplane Mode on your iPhone.

-Physically disconnect your iPhone from the car. For wireless CarPlay connections via Bluetooth, turn off Bluetooth on your iPhone.

As soon as Airplane Mode is turned off or your iPhone is reconnected, CarPlay will automatically launch again if set up to do so.

Permanently Disable CarPlay

For a more permanent solution, you will need to unlink your iPhone from the CarPlay system:

On your iPhone, go to Settings > General > CarPlay and select your vehicle. Tap on “Forget This Car”.


-On your car infotainment system, look for CarPlay settings and select “Disable”, “Disconnect”, “Remove Device” or similar to unlink your iPhone.

You can still manually activate it at any time by tapping the CarPlay icon on your car system.
