Apple unveils CarPlay iPhone system

Apple has unveiled its new iPhone technology for cars at the Geneva Motor Show
[blockquote cite=””] CarPlay allows iPhones to plug into cars so drivers will be able to call up maps, make calls and request music with Siri voice commands or a touch on a vehicle’s dashboard screen.

It requires Apple’s latest software, iOS 7 and an iPhone 5, 5C or 5S. Car producers including Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo previewed CarPlay in Geneva with other producers saying they are planning to adopt the system.

[blockquote cite=”Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of iPhone and iOS product marketing”] iPhone users always want their content at their fingertips and CarPlay lets drivers use their iPhone in the car with minimized distraction.
