Apple CarPlay, the in-vehicle system that has been steadily picking up support ever since it was originally announced, has just confirmed a pair of new manufacturers to its list of supporters.
Honda has been a long-time partner with Apple when it comes to supporting the in-car system CarPlay, and now the auto manufacturer has just confirmed one more addition to the lineup.
Ford has been a partner with Apple CarPlay ever since the feature was first introduced, but the rollout has been a slow one.
Google and Apple offer Android Auto and CarPlay, their own take on how you can easily use your phone while driving through your car’s infotainment system. Just like Android and iOS, the approach taken by both companies are very different from each other here.
Technically speaking, Apple introduced the ability for in-car systems to support wireless CarPlay with iOS 9, but the adoption has been anything but quick.
A seemingly minor change from Apple in the iOS 10.3 beta to CarPlay is going to make using the feature simpler and quicker. CarPlay in itself has a very simple interface that is meant to be as distraction-free as possible.
