Velar just had its first service, software updated but I was told that in order to get Apple Car Play I have to pay £240 for a smartphone pack? is that correct?

In short, yes. It’s at the dealers discretion to charge or not apparently. It’s included as standard on 20MY.
On order due for delivery Sept 2019:

MY20 D240 R-Dynamic SE, Santorini Black, 14 way heated, memory seats, Heated/power recline rear, 20” 7 spike gloss black wheels, Electrically deployable towbar, Fixed panoramic roof, Rear seat release , Power pack 2

I would raise a Complaint via JLR customer relations about the software issues you’ve been experiencing and suggest by way of compensation that they should install for free.

Its well worth the money if you want a choice of navigation apps (Waze, TomTom GO, Apple Maps, Google Maps), Siri to read and compose messages, WhatsApp read and compose messages, access to your music library with audio routed over the lightning connection and not bluetooth, BBC Sounds playback and radio streaming, much nicer phone app than the InControl one etc...
