4) After 5 seconds have passed, disconnect your iPhone from the Lightning Cable, then wait for up to 2 minutes. CarPlay should now load wirelessly. Please set a timer on your iPhone for 2 minutes and wait patiently. This step can’t be rushed. Older iPhones may take 2 minutes to connect and iPhone 7 and above usually takes less than 1 minute.
