Apple Technology (iOS) Coming to a Car Near you – Carplay

Apple has long been the champion of some of the most innovative tech we have ever seen for consumer use, from the simplicity and elegance of iPad Air, to the portability and convenience of the iPhone 5S, and to the sheer power and incredible performance of the Mac Pro. Apple and Steve Jobs earned an infamous reputation for having the “Next Biggest Thing,” – Well Tim Cook and team have not failed to disappoint because it’s here! Apple’s newest technology is coming to a car near you in the form of a fully interactive infotainment system that mimics iOS called “CarPlay.” CarPlay seen in the video below, will basically bring the power of Apple’s iOS to your car’s dashboard. Siri integration has been streamlined to offer lots of voice command functionality to do things like read and send texts, play music, get directions etc.

Based on this excerpt from an article on the Verge, it looks like there will be support for CarPlay from car manufacturers on a wide scale.

The first cars to support CarPlay will debut at the Geneva Motor Show this week, coming from Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, and Volvo. They’ll be followed by a very broad range of carmakers: Nissan, Peugeot, Jaguar Land Rover, BMW, and General Motors are among the big names promising to integrate CarPay into their forthcoming vehicles. Ford, which was recently reported to be moving away from Microsoft’s Sync in-car voice commands, is also among the roster of future CarPlay supporters.

Don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to have iOS in my car – it looks sweet!

iOS 7 is Said to Bring Major UI Update
iOS 7

Several reliable sources followed by JailBreakNation have it on good authority that Apple is set to debut some some big UI changes with iOS 7, rumored to be released this summer at WWDC. It has even been rumored that developers have been pulled off OSX 10.9 to help with iOS 7 development. Famous blogger John Gruber of Daring Fireball has this to say:

“What I’ve heard: iOS 7 is running behind, and engineers have been pulled from OS X 10.9 to work on it. (Let me know if you’ve heard this song before. tuaw.com)

Regarding Ive: Word on the street is that iOS engineers with carry privileges all have some sort of polarizing filter on their iPhone displays, such that it greatly decreases viewing angles, thus making it difficult for observers to see the apparently rather significant system-wide UI overhaul.”

What ever the outcome, we all can agree that a new refresh of the user interface of iOS is more than welcome as it really hasn’t changed that much since its inception in 2007. We think many will agree, this will be one of the first real tests to see if Apple can keep up its super innovative image under Jobs like CEO Tim Cook. Apple we are ready and waiting to see what you’ve got…
