Mobile Tech For You And Your Car.

In March of this year Apple announced its new car-infotainment system - the CarPlay. This technology will be totally integrated within certain car brands and models for a totally seamless driving experience.

CarPlay will let iPhone users make calls, read and send messages, listen to music & use maps all using Siri-based voice control, touch controls and your standard knobs, dials and buttons in the car. Your 3rd party apps, like Spotify, will be able to run through this system.

Currently Jeep, Mazda, Ram, Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Audi, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, BMW, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar Land Rover, Kia, Mitsubishi, Nissa, Peugeot Citro├źn, Subaru, Suzuki and Toyota are listed on Apples CarPlay website as being affiliated brands.

Is this integrated technology the way of the future? Do consumers want to be relying on more Apple products?

Regardless of what people think about this system, it is great to see large brands investing in safer ways to drive and communicate.
