It looks like BMW will begin supporting CarPlay in its vehicles later this year. The BMW X5 M and X6 M will both come with CarPlay-compatible touchscreen displays, and the infotainment system will be an option for the cars when they roll out later this year.
A forum member over at Bimmerpost (via 9to5Mac) spotted BMW's German price list and catalog for the X5 M and X6 M, which also indicates that the cars will support CarPlay wirelessly (translated from German):
BMW expects to ship CarPlay support in the second half of 2016. BMW will be just the latest automaker to bring built-in CarPlay support to its vehicles, which is currently supported by 21 manufacturers on over 100 vehicles.
