Elon Musk has said that Tesla will consider adopting Apple‘s AirPlay protocol to improve their audio quality control over the current Bluetooth system.

Over the past years, Tesla emphasized their passion for sound systems by ensuring its vehicles have the utmost sound quality. Their latest version of the Model S and Model 3 has received positive comments from audiophiles.

In the past, Tesla’s audio system has always been compared to a Bang & Olufsen system, which is often found in premium vehicles, however, for a fraction of the price. Musk took on Twitter to comment on the comparison:

Tesla audio engineers come from B&O & many other companies. They literally rock. Our system is highly programmable, so we keep improving it via OTA codec updates.

For years, Tesla owners have been asking about the possibility of adopting Apple AirPlay, which uses adopts Wi-Fi as opposed to Bluetooth. Owners suggested that since Tesla vehicles are equipped with Wi-Fi, implementing AirPlay would provide lossless streaming. Musk commented on this and claimed that a solution would be discussed with the audio team.

In the past, Tesla has been reluctant to integrate Apple’s software into their vehicles. For instance, Apple CarPlay is a feature that owners of Tesla have requested previously. However, Tesla chose to continue with its own software ecosystem.
