Wireless Apple Carplay on Android Head Unit

Apple recently unveiled its new CarPlay in-car interactive system at this year's Apple Worldwide Developers Conference. The new CarPlay has been further expanded in terms of functions, integrating all the screens in the car through in-depth cooperation with car brands. CarPlay's update is in line with the electrification of the automotive sector, where more and more functions will be realized through on-screen interaction. However, Apple does not provide CarPlay APK, so many owners who use Apple phones and install Android car stereo in their cars cannot install and use CarPlay through Google Play Store. Luckily, car owners can use CarPlay, even wireless CarPlay, on Android car stereo through a dongle/adapter.
