Connecting your iPhone to your Lincoln makes for a more familiar display and access to helpful apps that you use everyday like Music, Maps, and Messenger.
Apple CarPlay allows you to use and manage basic phone functions hands-free through the infotainment display in the vehicle. 
To launch Apple CarPlay, simply connect your phone via a USB cable and allow the vehicle access to the phone. Be sure to unlock your phone when connecting and also, use a supported USB cord so that the vehicle can access the media in your phone.
Once the phone is connected a prompt should pop up on the screen asking if you would like to use Apple CarPlay, press continue and follow the on screen prompts until the system is connected.
Apple CarPlay can perform many of the same functions as an iPhone, such as give turn-by-turn directions, make calls, send and receive text messages, and play music, podcasts or audiobooks. 
Apple CarPlay can be controlled and accessed through the vehicle's touchscreen or via Siri voice commands. Siri Voice Control with Apple CarPlay is designed specifically for driving scenarios for calling, texting, and accessing other apps without the need to use your phone or the touchscreen. 
Siri can read, reply to, and send text messages for you so that you never have to pick up your phone. You can tell Siri who you want to text and what the text will say and she will compose and send the message for you. 
The same process can be used to get turn-by-turn directions on the screen. Simply tell Siri where you want to go and a list of the nearest options will display on the screen. Select which destination you want to go to and the route will display through the Maps app, just like you would on the phone screen.
Apple CarPlay allows access to your music library and other supported apps like Spotify, Audible, MLB At Bat, and Waze.
