UK and US: BMW removes Apple CarPlay subscription fees

According to a media report, BMW has removed the subscription fees for Apple CarPlay in the US and the UK.

BMW charged US$ 300 for a lifetime access to CarPlay and later revised the fee to US$ 80 annually, with the first 12 months offered for free.

It is said that BMW has decided to do away with the subscription fee and all models with the latest infotainment system will come with lifetime CarPlay access for free. Reports suggests that Apple does not charge car makers to use CarPlay, but costs are incurred when integrating it with the car's infotainment system. While most manufacturers included this cost in the price of the vehicle, BMW decided to add it as an option in their cars.
