Apple has updated CarPlay to make it more compatible with a car’s instrument panel and to provide deeper integration with the vehicle itself. Users of CarPlay will be able to replace what appears on the instrument panel with an Apple-style widget design.
Users can enter trip information, manage the car’s climate, check the weather, monitor current navigation information, gasoline and battery levels, and more. It includes a brand-new UI that looks like an iPad on the centre screen and adjusts to different screen sizes.
More announcements are expected late next year, according to Apple. Apple has been developing an electric autonomous vehicle internally, but the firm has been plagued by setbacks and leadership departures. This new CarPlay integration is the closest thing we’ve seen so far to an Apple Car.
Ford, Audi, Jaguar-Land Rover, Nissan, Volvo, Polestar, and others are already working towards integrating the next generation of CarPlay. CarPlay is already installed in 98 percent of new cars, according to Apple, and 79 percent of users consider it when purchasing a vehicle.
