Audi to Offer Apple CarPlay in 2015

All those who had been waiting for any news related to the supporting cars for the Apple CarPlay, here is the good news. Audi has announced that by 2015 it is going to provide the CarPlay in its new models which will be arriving in Europe next year. These new cars will have the CarPlay integrated however the US showrooms will have to wait for these cars till 2016. As we have already learned before, CarPlay allows the iPhone users to sync their devices with the car and have fun with the hands free calling and texting.

Other features which can be accessed with the CarPlay include maps and music controls on the iDevices. No hands are required to operate the CarPlay because Siri is going to let you do that with your voice alone. You also have the other option of Audi's MMI touch system and dial controls. "In CarPlay-equipped models, Audi motorists will simply connect their iPhone to begin using their apps through the car's native controls," Audi said. "Drivers also have the option to easily switch from the CarPlay view and the Audi infotainment functions as desired."

Apple has said that cars coming this year too will feature the CarPlay and the list includes Ferrari, Honda, Hyundai, Mercedes-Benz, and Volvo. With the practicality and popularity of the CarPlay other auto manufacturers have also said that they will integrate the Apple car system. These include BMW, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Ford, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Toyota, and more.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
