InControl Apps is available on most Android and Apple iOS smartphones. Check if your devices are compatible.
Download and install the InControl Apps launcher on your smartphone. Once successful, open the app.
For Android devices: first pair and connect your smartphone to the car using Jaguar Bluetooth (needed for phone calls and audio streaming). This step is not required for iOS devices.
Ensure your device is unlocked and cases or screen covers are not closed (some can auto-lock the phone when closed).
Using the USB connection lead that comes with your smartphone, connect your phone to the car USB port.
If you are using an iPhone and InControl Apps is not already running, you will be prompted to open the app. If using an Android phone, you can select Always Allow when prompted, which will forego all future prompts.
Select InControl Apps from the Touchscreen. Only apps that have been through Jaguar’s approval process are available to use with InControl Apps. Some of these apps may be subscription based.
As part of the latest security updates in iOS 9 and onwards, InControl Apps now requires a short approval step to enable each compatible app in your car. For more information, please refer to the Security Update section of the InControl Connect FAQs.
As you will notice, the apps requiring permission will appear greyed out and unavailable to use until this process is completed.
On your Jaguar’s Touchscreen, select the greyed out app you would like to open and follow the instructions displayed on the left. During the process, you will be prompted twice to grant permission on your smartphone. You will only need to complete this process once for each app.
InControl Apps presents a car-optimised, interactive set of apps that enable media streaming, cloud- and location-based services and more - via a USB port.
We are happy to help with any queries or tell you more about InControl features.
