Apple To Unveil CarPlay @ Geneva Auto Show

Sometime in February report came in about Apple in secret meeting with Tesla Motors but the meeting doesn't to be yielding positive result yet. Apple has officially announced CarPlay, its new in-car interface that'll be compatible with new Ferrari, Mercedes and Volvo cars unveiled at the Geneva Auto Show this week.Designed
"from the ground up" to bridge the gap between your iPhone and your auto, it will offer touch and Siri-based voice navigation of your smartphone services, including contacts, voicemail, notifications, map directions and music cueing -- it will even support third-party apps like Spotify and iHeartRadio from launch. The service will launch as an iOS update for Lightning-enabled iPhones (that's iPhone 5s and up), with CarPlay-compatible vehicles launching later this year. And if any of the above aren't your preferred automaker, Apple says that you can expect compatible cars from BMW, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Toyota and several more in the near future.
