New radio time...what do I need?

I've changed many radios over the years...usually can pick up a harness adapter pretty easily. My factory AM/FM/CD head unit display is working intermittently so I'm ready to upgrade to a new head unit with Apple Carplay. I don't see a simple harness adapter...just a $60 one with canbus adapter. Being that I don't have sync or any other features, do I still need this? I will be adding a back-up camera also. Truck is a 2012 XLT F350 and I'm looking at the Pioneer AVH-1300NEX. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply...did further research and ordered the PAC canbus adapter. My research said that it could be done but I wanted the plug and play of a harness....so it's this weekends project.

What kind of canbus adapter did you buy?

I did the PAC C2R-FRD1. It works pretty well. No issues.
