It applies to all MY2019 and MY2020 that included it Free for one year when bought or that was purchased by the customers after delivered.
I take MY2016-2018 are not eligible for free access to CarPlay?
My old M2 was MY2017 and didn't have the necessary hardware to do Apple CarPlay so some cars won't be eligible because of this.
There are ways around.

Fit the wifi aerial to the head unit and activate carplay (without connected drive, the official unofficial way) and with various hacks/patches on the internet.
