The home screen of the My Porsche app has been completely revamped. Developers were guided by the practical experiences, desires, and requirements of customers. The new home screen in the My Porsche app offers more information, a clearer overview, and more functions. Users will find relevant information at first glance and can start many functions directly from the home screen via the Quick Actions. The number of Quick Actions varies depending on the model. In electric vehicles, for example, a charging widget combines all the relevant charging functions of the app in a single location. A scroll function and prioritization of elementary functions create the space for direct access to frequently used features.
My Porsche in Apple CarPlay® for more than 400,000 existing vehicles worldwide.
Porsche is the first vehicle manufacturer to integrate vehicle functions of its app in Apple CarPlay®, thereby creating an innovative, personalized user experience. The functions include audio sound profiles, changing radio stations, changing the air conditioning settings and controlling the ambient lighting. Also new is the Performance Dashboard, with which Porsche customers can call up performance data in real time in CarPlay®. This includes top speed, G forces, efficiency, average speed, distance and distance travelled with zero emissions.
The combination of vehicle functions with the CarPlay® experience also makes it possible to control many vehicle functions using Siri® voice control, which can be activated directly via the steering wheel button. The connection between the iPhone and the vehicle is quick and uncomplicated via the My Porsche app. At the request of many customers, Porsche is now making this functionality available retroactively to more than 400,000 existing vehicles globally. The technical prerequisite for this is activating PCM 6.0.
Apple® Maps EV Routing which is already available for Tayan models in the US, is now being rolled out to more cars in countries around the world. Apple® Maps EV routing in CarPlay® takes into account the vehicle’s state of charge and analyzes elevation changes and other factors along a route to suggest suitable charging locations and estimated charging times.
More functionality for Apple Watch® users
With the My Porsche app for the Apple Watch®, Porsche is fulfilling another frequent customer suggestion. The app icon included the representation of the linked Porsche mode and provides access to information about the vehicle and vehicle status as well as pre-climatization, locking and unlocking the vehicle right from the wrist.
