Apple brings its latest feature of CarPlay which allows your iPhone to be integrated with your car hence allowing easier access to phone functions with the help of voice commands or event he controls on your car. This is a simple feature which will work in order to keep your phone connected to the car and as a result of this, you will be able to make and receive calls and messages and make use of other Siri options. And if you need to use the maps there is absolutely no problem at all because you can easily access the Apple maps which will guide you by giving turn by turn navigation and you will also see the map on the car's built-in display.
Other options include listening to music, podcasts, audiobooks, etc. through your car's speakers and the connection will turn your car into a massive docking station. You will be able to access all the essential functions without having to fondle with the phone while driving. This new feature will make its debut at the Geneva International Motor Show and the first cars to benefit from this system will include the Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo. But Apple has a long list of other car manufacturers too which are in the line for this feature (BMW Group, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai Motor Company, Jaguar Land Rover, Kia Motors, Mitsubishi Motors, Nissan Motor Company, PSA Peugeot Citroën, Subaru, Suzuki and Toyota Motor Corp). All these car manufacturers are expected to roll out their cars with this system sometime in the near future.
