Apple upgrades CarPlay to further integrate with vehicle’s on-board systems

Apple has announced the next generation of its CarPlay technology, which it says deeply integrates with a car’s hardware.

It says CarPlay will be able to provide content for multiple screens within the vehicle, “creating an experience that is unified and consistent”.

The technology company says deeper integration with the vehicle will allow users to do things like control the radio or change the climate directly through CarPlay, and using the vehicle data, CarPlay will “seamlessly render the speed, fuel level, temperature, and more on the instrument cluster.”

Users will be able to personalise their driving experience by choosing different gauge cluster designs, and with added support for widgets, users will have at-a-glance information from Weather and Music right on their car’s dashboard.

More information about the next generation of CarPlay will be shared in the future, and vehicles will start to be announced late next year.
