How many drivers these days simply default to Apple CarPlay or Android Auto instead of using the car’s inferior infotainment system? It removes the learning curve needed and simply takes the same UI as your phone and supplants it in your vehicle. Apple just announced that its iOS 16 update will expand CarPlay’s functionality beyond just infotainment to include climate control, and real-time data such as speed, temperature, and fuel level. The rendering shows Apple CarPlay taking over gauges in the instrument cluster, climate control, etc. It gives us an idea of what an Apple CarPlay dominated interior could look like. Major automakers such as Acura, Audi, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Porsche, etc. have all bought into the project to various levels, so this will become a reality, which we are all for.
