Been advised that update not stable enough for pre MY19 vehicles, too many bugs, that JLR are trying to fix.
Sort of questions the dealers ability ??
I have actively been seeking an answer with regards to the Apple Play update due to be launched by JLR with regards to your specific vehicle. As I mentioned in previous communications I was seeking advice from our regional JLR representative.
At this moment in time I have been instructed that the Apple Play app is not to be installed on vehicles. We are aware other retailers, including some Farnell braches, have already applied the update. However the feedback we have had is that the app is not yet fully functional and therefore we will not be issuing it until we have confirmation all bugs have been ironed out.
I hope you understand that we do this in the interest of our customers and not to cause frustration and upset.
At this point we do not have any official launch date and have been made aware so far it will only be applicable for the 19 model year, however they are working on software to backdate the software for previous models.
