Broadcast Radio needs lots of in-car listening. So this should make all of us who work in Radio just a little bit anxious:
“CarPlay, Apple’s system for connecting your iPhone to your car, currently takes over a car’s entertainment functions.
- Soon Apple intends to provide a pervasive interface controlling everything from the dashboard to the temperature to mapping and music, Axios’ Ina Fried writes in her weekly Signal Boost column.
The sneak peek at the future of CarPlay occupied less than three minutes of an Apple developer event on Monday — but was arguably the most significant reveal of this year’s developer conference.
How it works: Apple’s demo showed CarPlay stretching across multiple displays, from the infotainment screen to the main instrument cluster, handling functions including fuel levels, speed, temperature control and radio — all things it doesn’t do currently.
- Auto companies working with Apple on the next generation of CarPlay include Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Nissan, Ford, Lincoln, Audi, Jaguar, Acura, Volvo, Honda, Renault, Infiniti and Polestar.”
