We picked up our Niro HEV yesterday. Everything i find online suggests that we should have Apple airplay.

It is a 2017 reg Niro, and i find online that Airplay only came to the Kia in early 2017 so im wondering whether the software has not been updated.

the version i have is:

Software: DE_HEV.EUR.SOP.12.001.2.
Firmware: DE_HEV.EUR.SOP.

Is anyone able to tell me whether this is up to date? and whether if i updated to more recent software i should expect to then have apple Airplay?

final question, is software update something you do yourself or should i get my dealer to do this instead?

thanks all.

If you look at the 6 numbers at the end of the firmware, you can see, it is from 2016-05-25 .... rather old ...the actual one is from 2019-10-31 ...
