Forgetting your car in CarPlay is a pretty simple process, but it’s not entirely obvious how to do it. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to reset Apple CarPlay in just a few taps.

Before we get started, it’s important to note that this process will only work if you have an iPhone running iOS 13 or later. If you’re not sure what version of iOS you have, open settings app and tap on General > About. Your software version will be listed next to “Software Version.”

2. Open settings app on your iPhone and scroll down to find the CarPlay settings.
3. Tap on the car that you want to forget in CarPlay. In most cases, this will be the name of your vehicle.
4. On the next screen, tap Forget This Car at the bottom of the screen.
5. Confirm that you want to forget the car by tapping Forget Car again when prompted.

1. Open Settings on your iPhone.
2. Tap Bluetooth.
3. Tap info button next to your car’s name in the My Devices list.
4. Tap Forget This Device, then tap Forget Device to confirm.
5. Restart your iPhone and your car.

7. Open Settings on your iPhone once again.
8. Tap Bluetooth, then wait a moment for the list of My Devices to appear again; hopefully, this time it will include your car’s name under the Available Devices list (if not, move closer to your car to ensure that it’s within range of Bluetooth).
