There is also another update "H251" for Jaguar vehicles to enable SOTA updates.

Please excuse my ignorance but does this mean that MY2018 F-Pace with this software will be able to run Apple Car Play? My touch screen looks like the one in this picture... Now, that would make my day!!

I’m afraid that is ICT and will not work with Apple Play.

Dealer upgraded to allow me to do SOTA from 18b.
Now had this screen for 3 days!
Is there any way of aborting the update and starting again?
