iOS 8.3, which was seeded to developers today, brings wireless CarPlay to the iPhone. For users, that means you can now connect to your in-car system wirelessly instead of using a USB Lightning cable.

Volvo first let it slip that CarPlay would support wireless connectivity back in March of 2014. Apple is using Wi-Fi to connect with receivers in cars, so the vehicle/car receiver must first support wireless CarPlay in order to work.

There's also support for Google's two-step verification when logging into and adding Google accounts on iOS.

Apple Pay has received support for the China UnionPay network and a few additional enhancements:
● You can use a new class, PKPaymentButton, to create buttons that initiate Apple Pay purchases. These buttons are appropriately styled with the Apple Pay logo.
● Apple Pay now supports different shipping types, such as “shipping,” “delivery,” “pickup from store,” and “pickup from customer.” You can also now request the user’s name without requesting their address.

For game developers, apps that use Metal now have additional ways to manipulate shader buffers and introspect vertex attribute types.

Not sure what CarPlay is all about...I've been using Bluetooth wirelessly since my iPhone 5s. I currently have a 6 plus and I connect wirelessly perfectly every day to listen to my playlists, iTunes Radio & my You Version Bible. The emojis pictured in this article are currently on my keyboard & have been for a long time. So what's different???
