BimmerLink for iOS is the direct link to your BMW or Mini. Using an OBD adapter you can read trouble codes or display sensor values in realtime, check the current state of the DPF in your car or register a new battery after replacement. BimmerLink even allows you to remotely control the exhaust flap or mute the Active Sound Design in your car.
READ AND CLEAR TROUBLE CODES
Diagnose your car as would otherwise be possible only by your Service Partner. In contrast to generic OBD apps, BimmerLink allows you to read trouble codes from all control units in your car. Existing trouble codes can be cleared easily and besides the error memory you can also read errors from the info memory and the permanent error memory.
DISPLAY REALTIME SENSOR VALUES
BimmerLink provides a huge selection of values like oil temperature or boost pressure. Keep an eye on all the important parameters of your car with a personalized dashboard.
EXHAUST FLAP REMOTE CONTROL
Take control over the exhaust flap in your car and decide yourself, whether it should be closed or open.
ACTIVE SOUND DESIGN
If you do not like the artificial engine sound generated in your car, just mute the Active Sound Design with BimmerLink.
BimmerLink allows you to check the current state of the diesel particulate filter in your car. Find out when the last regeneration took place or how much ash has accumulated in the filter and start a regeneration with the touch of a button.
If you want to replace the battery in your car, this has to be registered in the engine control unit and BimmerLink allows you to do this yourself now.
To use the app one of the supported Bluetooth or WiFi OBD adapters is required. For more information please visit https://bimmerlink.app.

Ratings and Reviews
This is a pretty solid app for clearing codes, I use Carly as well and this one is much faster and smoother. Well worth the price Only one issue is all codes are in German, you will have to copy text and translate to English. I emailed the developer and there hopefully will be a English version sometime in the future. Pick up a Vgate WiFi gen 3 adapter off eBay to use this app and you’re good to go.
This is a must have for BMW owners. The list of what this can read with your OBD dongle is incredible. Frankly it gives too much information. BMWs are computers on wheels with multiple excuses, each one capable of tons of info. If you want basic info, you have that too. I believe there’s enough info picked up to keep you busy hunting down what it all means for months.
This app does exactly what it should. It lets you clear errors, play with the exhaust flap and ASD, look at sensor values yes they are in Celsius and the like but I don’t mind. Maybe they will update it to Fahrenheit in the future. But I don’t mind. It’s super easy to use. And they updated to to English. So even better. All the people that gave it negative reviews cause some of it was in German are just crybabies.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
