Looks like Apple has found a way to integrate your iPhone 5 into your car’s center console. It would make be easier to make phone calls, access messages (even though texting while driving is illegal), listen to music, and use Maps. This definitely falls under the DIY aspect especially if you have a jail broken iphone. The possibilities are endless. What’s even more interesting is that Apple has partnered up with a big list of automotive names such as Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi Motors, Nissan Motor Company, and of course Subaru!
Here is the official link from Apple’s Press Info.
CarPlay will become available as an update to iOS 7 on lightning-enabled iPhones, which currently means the iPhone 5, iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. We’ll see the first cars supporting CarPlay on the road sometime in 2014.
Let me know what you think.
