Tata Nexon has been doing wonders for the company since its launch in September last year and it has gained popularity in just a few months after its launch in India and this is evident by the fact that the sales of the sub-compact SUV have been averaging around 4,500 units a month. According to Tata Motors, the Nexon will get an Apple CarPlay update by mid-August. If you are an existing customer, you don't need to worry as you can take your car to a Tata authorized service center where you can get the software updated of your Nexon to get the update. The new update will surely bring a relief for Apple iPhone users as they will be able to connect their smartphone to the SUV. The new Apple CarPlay update will be rolled out for three variants of the Nexon namely XZ, XZ+ and XZA+. The update will take around 30 minutes to get installed.
