Apple unveiled its new CarPlay touchscreen infotainment technique earlier nowadays, and Volvo has just released a video showing the method in action. The Cupertino tech giant is anticipated to announce partnerships with Ferrari and Mercedes-Benz to license CarPlay, as effectively, at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show and will be doing work with even a lot more companies in the future.
The method pairs the driver’;s iPhone with the car’;s infotainment system and seamlessly allows them use the sensible phone’;s functions and, at least in Volvo’;s demonstration, the car’;s climate manage and seat heating techniques. According to the video, the new technique will be obtainable “in the coming generation Volvo vehicles,” which very likely indicates the upcoming, next-generation Volvo XC90.
However, the system will not function universally. Apple will include performance by way of an update to iOS 7 in the long term for the iPhone 5, 5C and 5S. At launch other gadgets won’;t be supported. Scroll down to observe CarPlay function. We are expecting much more specifics to emerge on the new infotainment system when the Swiss display opens tomorrow.
