Sirius XM now offers Apple CarPlay support

Sirius XM has added support for Apple CarPlay to its iOS app. The in-vehicle support means car owners with the CarPlay can connect their phone to access channels, on-demand episodes, and other favorite content.

Sirius XM had an active year at the rumor mill thanks to an on-again, off-again courtship of Pandora. In July, the satellite radio company announced an investment of $480 million in Pandora, as well as adding some members to the online audio company’s board. In the company’s Q2 earnings call, CEO Jim Meyer and CFO David Frear discussed why Sirius XM opted against a full acquisition of Pandora.
