Apple CarPlay Real World Demo

EV owners have commented that Edmunds’ CarPlay experience was peculiar, since other vehicles have had no issues with the system. Lucid Air owners even posted videos to prove that Apple CarPlay runs smoothly. Additionally, they suggested that the iPhone might have been in low power mode, which could explain the lack of speed.

The review group showcased the Lucid Air's Apple CarPlay in one of their videos, and although it operated, a lot of users on social media noticed that it seemed to be running sluggishly. This provoked a reaction from some electric car experts who pointed out Edmunds’ post about the car's enhanced infotainment speed even though what they show was an unresponsive CarPlay.
