How To: Remove and Change the Order of Your Apple CarPlay App Icons | iOS 15 Guide Tips Walkthrough


In this short “How To” video I tell you how to remove apps and organise your Apple CarPlay app icons on your CarPlay display.

In this video, I show you how to do this in iOS 15 Public Beta, but the process is just the same on older versions of iOS. Simple go to your Settings app on your iPhone, then select General, select CarPlay, then select the CarPlay profile for your system and then select Customise.

From here you can remove your apps from your CarPlay display. This will not remove them from your iPhone, they will just not show up on your CarPlay display.

Tapping and holding on the edge of the app in the list allows you to reorder them to a different location. The first 8 will show on the first page, and the second 8 will appear on the second page.

Select Save on the top right to finish. You can also shuffle and remove icons on the fly when connected to CarPlay, so you can see your changes live on the screen.
