<a href="https://www.motoringfile.com/2015/09/04/carplay-is-coming-to-the-mini-with-touchscreen-idrive/">Over a year ago</a> we told you that MINI was working behind the scenes to bring Apple <a href="http://www.apple.com/ios/carplay/">CarPlay</a> to market. Now we can confirm the timing. According to sources familiar with MINIs' plans, Apple CarPlay will be available on the F60 MINI Countryman beginning with July 2017 production. This option (yup, it'll be an option) will only be available with MINI's new touchscreen navigation (OE 609). The standard 6.5" iDrive system in the Countryman will not be available with CarPlay.
