If you use Carplay, does this automatically use the iPhone data for in-car data? or do you have to set this up separately?
No, you’d need to set up tethering separately, but not sure if you can as the Bluetooth is in use for CarPlay now. I have a sim in my boot, so never had the need. There was a very good deal for a 3 sim on Amazon for 24 months which just made more sense.

When activating connected safety in my car, it also warned it needed to use a small amount of data, suggesting this was done through tethering or personal sim, although my dealer said this was done through Volvo on call.

What type of data usage did you get to cover this?

24GB for 24 months. Have a search on amazon, just make sure you get the right validity. Some offers are only 30 days. I think it’s about £45 now.
