The CarPlay by Apple, which we all initially came to know as the iOS in the care has finally been rolled out along with the iOS 7.1 update. However, we can’t really get to know enough about this new software because the cars which will support this are yet to roll out into the market. Pioneer seems to be helping out those who don’t want to buy a car all over again only because they want to enjoy this new interface. For such people, Pionees brings an alternate solution and the audio specialist has given us a taster in the form of a demo clip.
It has been years since the in-car infotainment systems made it to the markets but with a new development such as Apple’s CarPlay, users will be allowed to interact with their devices while driving in a whole new manner. Soon after announcement, it wasn’t clear whether the software would be available for third parties as an aftermarket commodity, or if it would be reserved only to those buying new cars. But now Apple has stepped up and cleared all confusions.
The CarPlay is not in its final stage because the software still needs some time to develop to work perfectly into the mainstream and several caveats to be worked out before it can be rolled out to the masses. But we don’t have to worry about this for long because by the time users get their hands on this one, it will all be ready.
