Apple Rolls Out CarPlay Giving Drivers iPhone Voice Control Options


Auto manufacturers are rolling out Apple CarPlay, a hands-free smartphone technology for car drivers with integrated iPhone voice-control features.

CarPlay gives allows iPhone users make calls, use Maps, listen to music and access messages with just a word or a touch. Drivers can 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 Citro?n, Subaru, Suzuki and Toyota Motor Corp.



"iPhone users always want their content at their fingertips and CarPlay lets drivers use their iPhone in the car with minimized distraction," said Greg Joswiak, Apple's vice president of iPhone and iOS Product Marketing.

Once iPhone is connected to a vehicle with CarPlay integration, Siri helps drivers access their 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 also provides driving directions by working with Maps to anticipate destinations based on recent trips via contacts, emails or texts, and provides routing instructions, traffic conditions and ETA. Drivers can also ask Siri and receive spoken turn-by-turn directions, along with Maps, which will appear on their car?s built-in display.

CarPlay gives drivers access to all of their music, podcasts, audiobooks and iTunes Radio with navigation through listening choices from the car's built-in controls or by asking Siri to pull up what they'd like to hear. CarPlay also supports select third-party audio apps including Spotify and iHeartRadio.

Apple CarPlay is available as an update to iOS 7 and works with Lightning-enabled iPhones, including iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c and iPhone 5. The technology will be available in select cars shipping in 2014.
