Toyota says the 2020 Corolla will be available at dealerships this March, starting at $19,500 in the United States.

Toyota was a longtime ‌CarPlay‌ holdout, but it now offers Apple's platform in the 2019 and later Avalon, Camry, Corolla Hatchback, C-HR, RAV4, and Sienna as well as the 2020 Corolla, Tacoma, Tundra, Sequoia, 4Runner, and Supra.

The platform was introduced in 2014 and is now offered in over 500 vehicle models in the United States, according to Apple.

CarPlay is nice, but without wireless, to me it’s useless. I would rather go aftermarket since they now offer wireless CarPlay.

A $19,500 Corolla. Welcome to the future. I guess relative to most new cars (I think ASP of USA new car sales in 2018 was like $37,000), the Corolla is still a bargain but 20K for a Corolla seems like a practical joke.

Pickup buyers in the US are paying 61% more than 10 years ago.

I just got CarPlay in a new car (Jeep Grand Cherokee). It is truly excellent. An unsung part of the Apple ecosystem

That said, I wish I had wireless CarPlay. I consistently forget to plug my iPhone in before driving off. I now see how a wireless version would be the way to go

Wow, useless? I would think it would have some utility, like playing music, provide directions, and since it's wired it would also charge your phone while you do all that.
