Get rid of that USB wire with a wireless connection

Smartphone connectivity is one of the most in-demand features that drivers look for when they’re searching for their next car lease.

Giving you the ability to safely access most of your iPhone’s key features on the move, Apple CarPlay is now considered a must for many.

Apple CarPlay allows you to take and receive phone calls, respond to text messages or even access apps like Spotify or Waze.

Such is the advancement of modern vehicles, Apple CarPlay is a common feature among new cars, but most will require a physical USB or USB C connection. The luxury of wireless CarPlay is not as common as you might think.

For iPhone users, it’s an incredibly handy feature to take advantage of. Thanks to some of CarPlay's most recent updates, you can even access useful apps to find local charging points if you’re driving an electric car.

There aren’t many cars that don’t support Apple CarPlay these days. Tesla are perhaps the most high-profile example of a car manufacturer that doesn’t offer this same compatibility.

However, Tesla’s vast and impressive built-in infotainment system more than makes up for the lack of third-party connectivity options.

If wireless CarPlay is a must for you as you browse our best car lease deals, below you can find a selection of cars that will allow you to finally get rid of that USB wire!
