i am going to correct you just a tiny bit with quote from PR:

All UX models will also come standard with Apple CarPlay phone functionality. Once a compatible iPhone is connected through a USB cable, drivers can access Apple Music, maps, make phone calls, and send and receive messages all through the multimedia display or with voice control through Siri.
It does not debut, it would mean that it is first car with it, when UX is being sold from December, I am pretty sure that ES will come earlier (August?) with standard CarPlay too.

You're absolutely right. More accurate to say that UX was the first Lexus line announced to come with Apple CarPlay in North America, but 7ES should also have it (especially given its expected commonality with 5th-gen Avalon which debuted it first for Toyota overall) and it should go on sale a few months ahead of UX in North America.

Yeah, I had a hell of a time writing my post -- pretty sure the ES will be available before the UX, so technically the UX will not be the first.

So, who thinks adding CarPlay is going to alleviate criticism about Lexus Remote Touch?

Hopefully, it should.

Beyond that, though, 7ES will be the first of Lexus' high-volume models (RX and NX being the others) to transition to a TNGA architecture. Given that, and the ES's traditional-going-on-elderly demographic, I'd expect Lexus Remote Touch itself to receive attention and ergonomic improvements for 7ES.

The criticism will just turn to it not supporting Android Auto. And when Lexus supports Android Auto, the criticism will shift to the remote touch being 'bad anyway' because it's not (insert the controller of the favorite brand of the reviewer).


That said, the high-perspective shot of the UX from your article is quite fantastic!

My question to Lexus: can older Lexus (say 2017/2018) system get upgraded to have the apple carplay capability?

Honestly regarding Android auto , it's way and I mean it way much more better and easy to use especially in the voice command than the rotten apple car play, also androAn not only one maker unlike the rotten fruit

Maybe ones with Enfrom 2.0? As in LC, LS and? Krew or Joaquin might know more... certainly not any older system.
