Does 6.5 Display have any touch functions?

I'm waiting on my ordered 2019 JCW and I stuck with the 6.5 screen, I know the 8.8 says "touchscreen navigation", but does the 6.5 have any touchscreen functions at all, like changing a radio station? Or is it all the center dial controller or the physical buttons?

I'm kind of bummed that I didn't go with the Apple Play and the 8.8. I just drove a temporary car with Apple Play this weekend and connected my phone, all my music playlist were super easy to sort through on the screen.

No touch screen on the 6.5 screen.

My wife’s Subaru has apple car play and I really like it. That being said, I’ve adjusted and it’s nice to have a car that I can really just indulge in driving rather than fiddling with electronics.
I’ll probably do the bavsound speaker upgrade at some point because the sound is underwhelming and I’m not even an audiophile.

Just think of the touchscreen this way: something to love on your next one!

My 2019 F54 has a 6.5" screen and it is a touch screen. Most likely yours will also be a touchscreen. Odd that MINI doesn't write this down anywhere, but that seems to be the usual mode of operations for MINI marketing/sales...

The 6.5" display on the F56 does not have a touch screen.

That is so weird.

I just looked through the MINI builder, sure enough the F60 and F54 both list the 6.5" as being touchscreen, while the F55/F56 models say nothing, just that it's a 6.5" screen. That is...bizarre. And kind of infuriating ;-).
