Apple CarPlay is puttin the iPhone on four wheels


Apple CarPlay is planning to put the iPhone on four wheels, with their new ‘iOS in the car’ system planning to be debuted by Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo this very week.

The three carmakers will be followed by the majority of automotive manufacturers because the technology giant is planning to dominate in-vehicle connectivity.

According to Apple, CarPlay will be controllable through any vehicle’s native interface – the already existing dials, buttons or touchscreen – as well as using ‘Voice’ buttons on steering wheels to activate the integrated Siri assistant.

Siri will be able to send, read and reply on the behalf of the driver so that they can better focus on the road.

CarPlay will include Apple Maps as well, which will feature the ability to anticipate routes on the basis of addresses in your text/email messages or calendar, offer information on traffic conditions and estimated time of arrivals.

The CarPlay will be able to work in conjunction with one’s iTunes library and will support other music apps such as Stitcher and Spotify. CarPlay will be something of a complement to AirPlay so that you’re covered wherever you might be inside.

Greg Joswiak – Apple’s vice president of iPhone and iOS Product Marketing – said that CarPlay was going to allow drivers to enjoy their iPhone while still staying safe.

He said that the CarPlay was designed from the ground up so as to provide drivers with an incredible experience using their iPhone in their vehicle.

iPhone users tend to want their content at their fingertips and with the help of CarPlay lets drivers use their iPhone in the car with minimal distraction.

CarPlay will be available as an update to iOS 7 for Lightning-enable phones and according to Apple it will be available in “select cars from 2014”.
