Apple shares first-look at ‘next-generation’ of CarPlay
Apple has offered a first look at the “next-generation” of CarPlay coming later this year, featuring deep integration with the car’s hardware, including the ability to change the car’s temperature, tuning audio, and more within the CarPlay experience.
Highly emphasised as being the next-generation for CarPlay, Apple says more details on the new experience will be shared later this year when the first set of car manufacturers will share further information on supported models.
Apple’s new CarPlay experience will will allow drivers to do things like control the radio or change the climate directly through CarPlay, and using the vehicle data, CarPlay will render the speed, fuel level, temperature, and more on the instrument cluster.
Users will be able to personalize 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.
