Apple CarPlay to bring iPhone interface to cars
Apple has announced its next big thing: “CarPlay.” The system will mirror some of the smart-phone apps on the car’s screen to allow drivers to make calls, use Maps, listen to music, and access messages with a simple touch, or use Siri for voice control activated by a steering wheel button. The new 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, due this fall, will be the first production car to offer CarPlay.
After Mercedes, the CarPlay is due to appear in Volvos and Ferraris, and Apple says it is also working with BMW, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar, Land Rover, Kia, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru, and Toyota for future systems.
