Later yesterday, the Cupertino-based technology company, known to all as Apple, held its annual developer conference. At WWDC22, it introduced a number of new software and hardware products. Among them, what caught our eye was his car system. We are talking about Apple phone technology, namely CarPlay. The latter allows users to mirror their iPhone interface and software on the car screen. However, the new system has become more intuitive and now, it is not only an entertainment platform, but a tool for displaying various information, making adjustments and ease of interaction with the car.

Apple CarPlay interface

According to the official statement, the new version of Apple CarPlay will make its debut in cars in 2023. It supports multiple screen types and resolutions. So there is every reason to believe that almost all adults will provide support for the platform.

Unfortunately, Apple did not specify whether the new CarPlay iteration will work when the user’s iPhone is connected to the car via a USB cable or wireless. But the company did not hesitate to mention once again that CarPlay will share data in a fairly secure way. In addition, all the top car brands will support it, including Mercedes, Honda, Acura, Audi, Porsche, Volvo, Land Rover, Jaguar, Polestar, Nissan, Renault, Lincoln and Ford.

CarPlay updates

The new CarPlay system adopts a brand new interface. It looks like this on the iPad, but there are some notable differences. The new platform allows users to control the HVAC and air conditioning system directly from the screen. At the same time, you can control all the critical functions of the car, such as the speedometer, the speedometer, etc. Apple also showed how it will display the trip computer, the weather, the navigation system and the fuel and battery levels.

Apple CarPlay Information

Of course, Apple CarPlay is not the only platform for cars. Google is actively working on its Android Automotive. And we must say that the latter offers more opportunities, such as an exclusive application store. Apple did not present such a thing for CarPlay.

The company also presented some interesting facts. For example, it turns out that 98% of cars in the US had CarPlay. In addition, 79% of users considered their presence when buying a new car. It’s no secret that, for Apple, the US is one of the most important markets. And most of its products are for customers in the USA. CarPlay is no exception. Frankly, it will be very difficult for Apple to compete with Chinese companies in this area. We mean there are myriad of car manufacturers based in China and they all work with local big names in car systems. Huawei is among them.
