7 Series - G11 / G12 (2016 - current)
The next generation G11/G12 BMW 7 Series flagship forum. Unveiled June 10th, with production starting in August the 6th generation 7 Series comes in a light weight package with extensive use of BMW i carbon fiber technology. The interior quality raises the bar with a touch screen and gesture controlled infotainment system. Exterior styling has been a sticking point with mixed reviews so far.

Sending Text Messages and receiving email

Has anyone figured out how to send text messages from their 2016 7 series? I receive text messages, but there is no option to reply. I also don't have the option to initiate sending text messages.

Also, the option to receive emails is selected on my car, but my emails still are not showing up


I have an Iphone 10, by the way.

Thanks in advance for the responses.

Emails only work with Android phones. It never works with iPhones. At least not in my experience.

I use AppleCarPlay in my car. Best thing ever. Youll never touch your phone again in the car. Works so well. Easy Add-On

Long press on the microphone button activates SIRI, I dictate and send the messages. I have not seen an option to reply through iDrive
