Apple's CarPlay Now Official: Easy way to operate iPhone while driving

As we already knew from the leaks regarding Apple's "iOS In The Car" System All Set To Launch This Week, today Apple officially announced “CarPlay” at Geneva International Motor Show. CarPlay will integrate your iPhone with your car, because of which operating the cell phone while driving will be easier by using voice commands or the controls on car. Vehicles from Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo will be the first ones to bring CarPlay feature followed by other car manufacturers including 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.


These cars will have a voice control button on the steering wheel to activate Siri to control CarPlay. After you have connected your iPhone to your car, you can make and receive voice calls, messages, review traffic conditions and can perform many other tasks with the help of Siri with minimized distraction. Apple maps will be providing turn-by-turn navigation and show the map on car’s built-in display. You can also listen to music, podcasts, audiobooks, etc. through car’s speakers by simply giving comands to Siri.


CarPlay also provides support for some third-party audio apps like Spotify and iHeartRadio. It is available for iPhones running iOS 7 and Lightning connector enabled phones including iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c and iPhone 5.
