How to change your CarPlay’s wallpaper in iOS 17

Apple has been granted a patent for “Application Shortcuts for CarPlay.”

CarPlay is an Apple standard that enables a car radio or head unit to be a display and a controller for an iOS device. It’s available on all iPhone models beginning with the iPhone 5 (an, of course, later). You can change its wallpaper to your personal preference. Here’s how in iOS 17:

  1. From your car’s display, open the Settings app in CarPlay.
  2. Select Wallpaper.
  3. Choose the wallpaper that you want to use, then select Set.

(This how-to is based on my experiences and info on Apple’s support pages — where the images sometimes come from.)
