Apple CarPlay promises to make using an iPhone in the car easier and more fun

Apple CarPlay debuts and will come to lots of vehicles in 2014

Apple has announced that it is rolling out a new service for cars called CarPlay. CarPlay will make using the iPhone in the car safer, more fun, and smarter according to Apple. Multiple automakers have teamed up with Apple on CarPlay. The participating auto brands include BMW, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar, Kia, Mitsubishi, Nissan, and others.

“CarPlay has been designed from the ground up to provide drivers with an incredible experience using their iPhone in the car,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of iPhone and iOS Product Marketing. “iPhone users always want their content at their fingertips and CarPlay lets drivers use their iPhone in the car with minimized distraction. We have an amazing lineup of auto partners rolling out CarPlay, and we’re thrilled it will make its debut this week in Geneva.”

CarPlay offers tighter integration with the car and iPhone to let the driver focus more on driving while letting the driver access everything they want to from the phone. When the iPhone is connected to a CarPlay vehicle, Siri will help the user access their contacts, make, calls, return missed called, and listen to voice mail. Siri will also provide an eyes free experience when messages are received.

The system will read the messages to the driver. The vehicle will also look at the recent places on the phone to help anticipate destinations via emails or texts and provide routing directions and traffic conditions. It also gives access to music, podcasts, audio books, and more. The service will be offered in select cars starting this year.
