CarPlay support announced for select 2016 GMC and Buick models

GM is continuing to move forward in its commitment to CarPlay, announcing that the system will come to two more of its brands, GMC and Buick. CarPlay will come to these brands starting with the 2016 GMC Canyon, Yukon, and Sierra, as well as the Buick Regal and LaCrosse models. The system will integrate with GMC and Buick's own IntelliLink.

From GMC:

GMC's latest infotainment systems include an eight-inch-diagonal screen version offered on Canyon, Yukon and Sierra, which will be compatible only with Apple CarPlay at the beginning of the 2016 model year. A seven-inch-diagonal screen radio is offered on Sierra base models and will offer Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability at the beginning of the model year.

GM has previously announced CarPlay support for a number of its brands, including Cadillac and Chevrolet, which has already started rolling out models with support for the system. You'll need iOS 7.1 in order to use CarPlay in your new Buick or GMC vehicle.
