Apple's iOS In The Car Is Now CarPlay, Will Debut On Ferrari, Mercedes, Volvo Cars This Week

Mar 3, 2014

Since last summer, we've been waiting for the debut of Apple's in-dash operating system, iOS in the Car. Images of the service in action finally leaked to the web in January, and now Apple tells us that we'll get our first official glimpse of iOS in the Car -- renamed "CarPlay" -- this week at the Geneva Auto Show.

As expected, CarPlay will rely heavily on Apple's well-known mobile assistant, Siri, which can be activated by touching a button on the steering wheels of vehicles equipped with CarPlay. Presumably, users will also be able to activate Siri by pressing the iPhone's home button, but that would defeat some of the thinking behind CarPlay, which is designed to keep users' attention on the road and prevent them from fumbling with mobile devices.

Once an iPhone is synced with CarPlay, a driver can use Siri for a variety of tasks. That includes music, of course: via CarPlay, Siri can access all tracks and playlists on an iPhone and can also use third-party apps like Spotify. Siri can also read text messages, take dictation for outgoing messages, play voicemails, and help a user make calls, without the driver taking her eyes off the road.

But where CarPlay really shines -- at least on paper -- is in the navigation department. From the Apple press release:

"CarPlay makes driving directions more intuitive by working with Maps to anticipate destinations based on recent trips via contacts, emails or texts, and provides routing instructions, traffic conditions and ETA. You can also simply ask Siri and receive spoken turn-by-turn directions, along with Maps, which will appear on your car’s built-in display. "

Apple says that CarPlay will debut on Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, and Volvo at this week's Geneva Auto Show. However, a host of others are working to bring CarPlay to their dashboards "down the road", including BMW, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar, Land Rover, Kia, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru, and Toyota. (And maybe Tesla, too?)

Apple Signs Up 9 More Carmakers

Apple signs up 9 more carmakers for its CarPlay entertainment system
Carplay



Apple's CarPlay service is slated to go live in 29 different carmaker's vehicles.

07/03/2014

Apple Inc. signed on nine more automakers that will incorporate its coming CarPlay dashboard vehicle entertainment system into future vehicle models.

Dodge, Jeep, Fiat, Mazda, Ram, Abarth and Alfa Romeo are also on board for the in-car infotainment platform expected to launch this summer on Pioneer systems and later this year in new cars, the Los Angeles Times reported. The technology is only compatible with the iPhone 5, 5c and 5s.

The CarPlay platform fully integrates the iPhone, letting users open apps and content directly from the dashboard to place calls, play music and view maps. It relies on Siri to enable drivers to access any smartphone information.

The Cupertino-based iPhone maker first revealed the “iOS in the car” system in March with Ferrari, Mercedes and Volvo vehicles already signed up. BMW, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Land Rover, Toyota and Nissan also pledged at that time to include CarPlay in upcoming vehicles.

Google Inc. is also integrating its Android operating system into cars, signing deals with GM, Audi and others for a voice-enabled software system dubbed Android Auto.
