What is CarPlay
Ok so you’ve heard of CarPlay but what exactly is it? CarPlay is a solution that allows you to use your iPhone safely in your car. The first cars with CarPlay will be presented this week at the Geneva Motor Show with models from Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo. CarPlay works through the entertainment system in the car and is mainly operated with Siri commands, so you can keep your eyes on the road. CarPlay will initially work via a Lightning cable, Wi-Fi support will be added later on.
What can you do with it?
With CarPlay you can answer incoming calls, dictate text messages and control your music collection. Of course there is also direct access to Apple Maps, so you don’t need to buy any other navigation system.
How to get it
CarPlay will be available in a future update of iOS 7, perhaps even in iOS 7.1, which reportedly is scheduled for mid-March. To use CarPlay you need to have an iPhone 5, iPhone 5s or 5c (So no iPad support for now). CarPlay works with third-party apps, where Apple explicitly mentions Spotify and radio apps iHeartRadio, Beats Radio and Stitcher.
