Apple's Design Changes to iOS in the Car From iOS 7.0.3 to iOS 7.1b2 [Video]

New videos surfaced online today that show the design changes Apple has made to iOS in the Car from iOS 7.0.3 to iOS 7.1b2.

The launch of iOS in the Car has reportedly been plagued with delays and organizational strife. A report from The Information's Jessica E. Lessin (via AppleInsider) suggests that Apple's hardware-oriented corporate culture has been responsible. Non-hardware products such as iOS in the Car apparently do not fit well within existing teams.

Even in the lead-up to iOS in the Car's high-profile unveiling at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference last June, executives were reportedly still unsure about the product's future. The iOS in the Car group was forced to "lobby hard" for stage time, sources told the publication.

Although we have yet to see a release, Apple is clearly working on the feature, as these videos show.

The first video was posted by Steve Troughton-Smith showing iOS in the Car running on iOS 7.0.3. The second video was posted by Denis Stas and it shows iOS in the Car running on iOS 7.1 beta 2.

The first video interface almost appears simpler. It will be interesting to see what the design team's final product will be. Diffidently lots of room for improvement.

Why not just put an ipad builin car dash instead of a monitor sync with iphone?

Because the monitorvcan run without battery, the signal can be used like radio, and it never falls off.

Hopefully it features the ability to swap between left and right hand driving positions.
