Imagine a car that controlled your iPhone so you wouldn’t even have to touch it while you drive. With Apple CarPlay, that dream is soon becoming a reality. CarPlay is compatible with iPhone 5, iPhone 5S and 5C and will be available on select car models starting this year.
Apple CarPlay provides iPhone users a safer way to access their phones on the road. Simply plug your phone in and the controls will appear on your car’s built-in display.
Of course your trusty friend Siri will be along for the ride, and voice controls are specially designed for driving scenarios.
CarPlay allows you to utilize your favorite apps on the go.
- Maps – turn-by-turn directions, traffic conditions, estimated travel time
- Phone – make calls, return missed calls, listen to voicemail
- Messages – never look at your phone while driving, Siri can send, read, and reply to text messages for you
- Music – tell Siri what you want to listen to and access your favorite songs
So, will your next car have CarPlay in it? We know ours will. Stay tuned….
