Apple CarPlay: iOS in Your Cars Dashboard

Apple CarPlay: iOS in Your Cars Dashboard

Car Play-min

Apple has announced its new in-car iPhone integration system. Called CarPlay, it’s designed to be an eyes-free system which allows users to safely use their phone for information, entertainment and communication while at the wheel.

Apple claims that it’s “designed from the ground up to provide drivers with an incredible experience using their iPhone in the car.” In reality, that means that it’s focussed around Siri, using voice commands to help navigate your music collections, dictate text messages and deal with incoming calls. CarPlay will be controlled by using a car’s native infotainment system and, in some models, a dedicated voice control button on the steering wheel “to activate Siri without distraction.”

Unsurprisingly, CarPlay will also integrate Apple’s Maps into the driving experience. Crunching through data on your phone, it will “anticipate destinations based on recent trips via contacts, emails or texts, and provides routing instructions, traffic conditions and ETA,” and Siri will obviously be there to provide turn-by-turn directions, too. In terms of entertainment, CarPlay will support a bunch of third-party music streaming apps, including Spotify, Beats Radio, iHeartRadio, and Stitcher.

CarPlay will debut at this week’s Geneva Motor Show, in models by Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, and Volvo. If that list sounds a little exclusive, don’t worry, more will follow—from the likes of Nissan, Peugeot, Jaguar Land Rover, BMW, and General Motors. It will land as part of an iOS 7 update, and only work with Lightning connector iPhones—so, that’s the 5, 5S and 5C. It will be available in “select cars shipping in 2014.”

Great working with Lindum Packaging on the new website design and product finder tool. Thanks to Emily and Luella for making it such a painless process. ...

We have donated our old tablet devices to students at Tong Leadership Academy so that pupils can benefit from them. If your company has any old devices laying around the office like we always seem to, then why not donate them. They will have far more value to the pupils than they will on the second-hand market.
