Apple is finally flexing its muscle in the mobile auto segment as it announces the availability of CarPlay on a small but growing number of vehicles. 

The platform allows the functionality of the iPhone which is even now sitting in your purse or pocket to transfer to the infotainment screen in your vehicle. What can we say? It makes sense having one device that has everything you need and you had to figure that it was coming to your car.
