Apple reveals CarPlay

Staff Writer

Apple have revealed CarPlay: an inbuilt system designed to allow drivers to use their iPhones more effectively while driving.

CarPlay will be built into the car dash, with Siri activated by pushing and holding a button on the steering vehicle, allowing the user to control maps, make calls, and to access music collections.

CarPlay will also support third-party streaming services, and digital radio.

Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo will showcase vehicles installed with CarPlay this week at an auto show in Geneva, while deals have also been done with BMW, Ford, GM, Jaguar Land Rover, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Mitsubishi, Nissan, PSA Peugeot Citroën, Subaru, Suzuki and Toyota.

The app will be compatible with iPhone 5, 5S and 5C.
