If you're an Apple Music subscriber, you can now enjoy your favorite tunes while behind the wheel of your Tesla with two solutions on this page.
There's no denying the fact that music can enhance any car ride, long or short. And with Apple Music, there's no shortage of great tunes to choose from. Whether you're a fan of the latest pop hits or prefer to rock out to classic rock, you'll be able to find something to suit your taste. But what if you're driving a Tesla? Can you still enjoy all your favorite Apple Music songs on Tesla? Next, we will explain in detail.
In December 2020, Tesla added an entrance for drivers to directly stream songs with Apple CarPlay. However, the references to Apple Music on Tesla have now disappeared. It's not clear why Tesla has decided to remove the references to Apple Music, but it's clear that Tesla's plans for Apple Music native app are currently up in the air. So it's negative to the question of Apple Music coming to Tesla in 2023.
Tesla doesn't support Apple Music platform, which has led to some other alternative solutions appearing. Here we've collected two quick methods: via Bluetooth or USB drive.
Step 1 Enable "Bluetooth" both on your Tesla and phone.
Step 2 On Tesla screen, select "Add New Device" and "START SEARCH".
Step 3 Once your phone name appears on Tesla screen, click it and pair.
Step 4 Simply open the Apple Music app on your phone, and start to play the song or playlist that you want to listen to on Tesla.

Unfortunately, Tesla has said that Apple Music will not be supported on the vehicle system. This is a disappointing development for many Tesla fans, as it means that they will have to use another music streaming service in their car.
However, it's still possible that listeners can now connect Tesla to phone with Bluetooth, then sync playing Apple Music tracks on it.
