Although an accurate date is not available yet, a spokesperson for Jaguar and Land Rover has recently confirmed that all their vehicles — starting with the 2019 model year — that come with the InControl Touch Pro or Touch Pro Duo infotainment systems will get an optional connectivity package including CarPlay and Android Auto.

Android Auto and CarPlay are both coming to Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles across the United States, confirmed a spokesperson for these two well-known brands. The only question that remains is when will this happen precisely.

MacRumors has recently got the official confirmation that all Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles that feature the InControl Touch Pro or Touch Pro Duo infotainment systems will also get an optional smartphone connectivity package that includes CarPlay and Android Auto. Fortunately, in addition to the 2019 model year vehicles, a retroactive update that includes Android Auto and CarPlay should soon be available at authorized dealerships across the United States for existing models with an InControl Touch Pro or Touch Pro Duo infotainment system as well.

Depending on the model and trim level, the optional installation of the aforementioned package will come at an additional charge starting around US$280. In the United Kingdom, compatible Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles are already receiving the update, so it should be rolling out in North America in the coming weeks as well.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
