Apple Announces CarPlay, Brings iOS to the Car

Posted March 3, 2014 at 7:55am by iClarified
Apple today announced that leading auto manufacturers are rolling out CarPlay, a smarter, safer and more fun way to use iPhone and iOS in the car.

CarPlay gives iPhone users an intuitive way to make calls, use Maps, listen to music and access messages with just a word or a touch. Users can easily control CarPlay from the car’s native interface or just push-and-hold the voice control button on the steering wheel to activate Siri without distraction.

Vehicles from Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo will premiere CarPlay to their drivers this week, while additional auto manufacturers bringing CarPlay to their drivers down the road include BMW Group, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai Motor Company, Jaguar Land Rover, Kia Motors, Mitsubishi Motors, Nissan Motor Company, PSA Peugeot Citroën, Subaru, Suzuki and Toyota Motor Corp.


Apple Announces CarPlay, Brings iOS to the Car

“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.”

Siri
Once iPhone is connected to a vehicle with CarPlay integration, Siri helps you easily access your contacts, make calls, return missed calls or listen to voicemails. When incoming messages or notifications arrive, Siri provides an eyes-free experience by responding to requests through voice commands, by reading drivers’ messages and letting them dictate responses or simply make a call.

Maps
CarPlay makes driving directions more intuitive by working with Maps to anticipate destinations based on recent trips via contacts, emails or texts, and provides routing instructions, traffic conditions and ETA. You can also simply ask Siri and receive spoken turn-by-turn directions, along with Maps, which will appear on your car’s built-in display.


Music
CarPlay gives drivers access to all of their music, podcasts, audiobooks and iTunes Radio with easy navigation through listening choices from the car’s built-in controls or simply by asking Siri to pull up what you’d like to hear. CarPlay also supports select third-party audio apps including Spotify and iHeartRadio, so you can listen to your favorite radio services or sports broadcast apps while driving.

Pricing & Availability
Apple CarPlay is available as an update to iOS 7 and works with Lightning-enabled iPhones, including iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c and iPhone 5. CarPlay will be available in select cars shipping in 2014.

Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS to find out when the CarPlay update becomes available.

You're getting more lost in your mind with confusion, the minute I tried apple maps I was hooked, but there's this http://www.zdnet.com/apple-maps-worldview-is-now-better-than-google-maps-7000023782/ saying how apple is better than googay maps at everything and no it's not because you get more lost, if there is a real percentage it's 0% the reason it's not off because it's improved and how do I know, read that article.

I wonder if apple chose to use the word "play" before google could grab it. Since google is supposedly developing an in car system of their own.

Wonder if apple chose to use "play" in the name before google could grab it. Since google is supposedly developing an in car display and features also. More than likely they would have named it CarPlay.

Ya. When I pressed the send button I didn't show that it sent and didn't show up in the comments. So I just resent another one. The comments section sucks on this site.

This happens when you try to comment again after the first time, in order to post another, I have to exit, go back in and do the same shit again.

Just the name seems a bit unfortunate... CarPlay... GooglePlay... Why Play?? Serious driving ain't for kids... On the other hand Ferrari most certainly is for kids...

Nitro Junkie - March 3, 2014 at 9:20am
Ferraris are for kids? What world do you live in? Besides kids that are millionaires and in video games, what kid drives a Ferrari?

I hate the way they do the comments on this site. You never know who's replying to whom.

gamerscul9870 - March 3, 2014 at 3:14pm
I hate how I have to comment and when I need to post another I have to exit the article then come back and repeat every time. I like iClarified but they need to update the app and their site, I am 85% happy of the site currently.

Isn't that the truth. Wish they'd use some sort of forum or comment sign up for the comments. The people on here using multiple names and using the names of others is getting rediculous.

How is it that they were the first ones to make anything if nowadays they take every last iPhone feature after the year it was revealed. Where else would they get ideas from?

Nice if there was a compatible screen you could buy that was compatible with CarPlay so you could install it in any car...
Nitro Junkie
Nitro Junkie - March 3, 2014 at 9:14am
I'm pretty sure somewhere down the line there will be aftermarket monitors and head units that will be compatible with this feature. Just like they are with iPod and iPhone now. But thank god this will be available in fords eventually because my Ford touch sync by Microsoft is horrible.
