Honda is on board with Siri Eyes, adding that option to its Accord and Acura models in 2013. Soon it will be supporting iOS mirroring in its upcoming 2014 Civic models. Honda confirmed this information in a recent conversation on Twitter. The company also announced that its Siri Eyes free update will land before the beginning of next month.
This iOS mirroring feature will link your car to your iOS handset closer than ever before. Customers who purchase a 2014 Civic will be able to control their iPhone or iPad using a multitouch display built into the car’s dash. The 2014 Civic Coupe reportedly will be the first model to sport this feature. Though not officially confirmed, Honda is likely using iOS in the Car to implement this technology.
Apple is working to integrate its phones and tablets closer into cars. Earlier this year, the company introduced iOS in the Car at WWDC. This new initiative allows you to connect your iPhone to your car using either Siri Eyes Free or the car’s built-in display. Once enabled, owner can make phone calls, play music, get directions as well as send and receive messages. Apple is working with Audi, BMW, Chrysler, General Motors, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, and Toyota to implement Siri Eyes Free in 2014 models.
