Apple Hits the Road with CarPlay, App Developers Should Rejoice iPhone 4 Users, Not so Much
Monday, March 03, 2014
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.
The great news for app developers is that you’re already dealing with Apple, so getting your app on the road will just be an extension of what you are already doing, so look for more news to come on that end.
The first manufacturers that are integrating CarPlay are Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, Honda, Hyundai, and Volvo. And the other big auto companies will be climbing on board quickly.
And as more manufacturers climb aboard, Apple is going to see more iPhone sales. That’s because only the iPhone 5 and future iterations will work with CarPlay. Now that’s just good marketing right there!
