Apple® today announced that leading auto manufacturers are rolling out
CarPlay, the smarter, safer and more fun way to use iPhone® in the car.
CarPlay gives iPhone users an incredibly 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.

“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.”
Apple has led consumer technology integration in the car for more than a
decade. CarPlay brings your car and iPhone together for a thoughtful
experience that lets drivers focus on driving, while also tapping into
everything they want to do with their iPhone.
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.
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.
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.
Apple designs Macs, the best personal computers in the world, along with
OS X, iLife, iWork and professional software. Apple leads the digital

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability.
