Apple CarPlay is a great way to get an intuitive phone like experience on your vehicle’s infotainment system without having to hold up your phone. The only problem so far has been that you cannot natively add other apps to Apple CarPlay.
NGXPlay is a Cydia tweak that lets you change this. The good news is you really don’t have to jailbreak your iOS to install NGXPlay since Electra lets you install this tweak on an un-jailbroken device.
Installing NGXPlay Without Jailbreaking
You will need iNoCydia, a third-party app from GamingWithVitro that brings the power of Cydia to non-jailbroken devices.
- Download and install iNoCydia
- Launch iNoCydia and use its search feature to look for NGXPlay
- Install the application
I have tested this trick on iOS 11 so far. After the installation, you can configure your CarPlay from the Settings app. Choose the installed apps you want your phone to show in CarPlay whenever you connect to your car’s infotainment system.
