In cursul acestei dimineti compania Apple a anuntat oficial lansarea CarPlay, un nou sistem dedicat soferilor care face utilizarea unui iPhone in masina mult mai sigura si mai simpla. Sistemul CarPlay era cunoscut pana astazi sub denumirea iOS in The Car, iar el permite interconectarea unui iPhone la sistemul de entertainment al unei masini pentru a permite o mult mai usoara controlare a sa. CarPlay ne ofera posibilitatea de a plasa apeluri prin iPhone, de a utiliza aplicatia Maps, de a asculta muzica si totul folosind doar interfata touchscreen a masinii sau butonul dedicat Siri si controlarii comenzilor vocale.
CarPlay este disponibil in momentul de fata in masini ale Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz si Volvo, un zvon aparut saptamana trecuta anuntandu-ne in legatura cu acest lucru. Chiar daca deocamdata putini producatori de masini ofera suport pentru sistemul CarPlay al celor de la Apple, in viitor BMW Group, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai Motor Company, Jaguar Land Rover, Kia Motors, Mitsubishi Motors, Nissan Motor Company, PSA Peugeot Citroën, Subaru, Suzuki si Toyota Motor Corp vor implementa tehnologia in propriile masini.
Nu se stie deocamdata cand vor avea aceste masini disponibil sistemul si desigur ca doar cele mai recente modele il vor oferi, asa ca veti avea de asteptat pana il veti putea utiliza.
Apple Rolls Out CarPlay Giving Drivers a Smarter, Safer & More Fun Way to Use iPhone in the Car
CarPlay Premieres with Leading Auto Manufacturers at the Geneva International Motor Show
GENEVA―March 3, 2014―Apple® today announced that leading auto manufacturers are rolling out CarPlay, the smarter, safer and more fun way to use iPhone® in the car. CarPlay gives iPhone users an incredibly intuitive way to make calls, use Maps, listen to music and access messages with just a word or a touch. Users can easily control CarPlay from the car’s native interface or just push-and-hold the voice control button on the steering wheel to activate Siri® without distraction. Vehicles from Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo will premiere CarPlay to their drivers this week, while additional auto manufacturers bringing CarPlay to their drivers down the road include BMW Group, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai Motor Company, Jaguar Land Rover, Kia Motors, Mitsubishi Motors, Nissan Motor Company, PSA Peugeot Citroën, Subaru, Suzuki and Toyota Motor Corp.
“CarPlay has been designed from the ground up to provide drivers with an incredible experience using their iPhone in the car,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of iPhone and iOS Product Marketing. “iPhone users always want their content at their fingertips and CarPlay lets drivers use their iPhone in the car with minimized distraction. We have an amazing lineup of auto partners rolling out CarPlay, and we’re thrilled it will make its debut this week in Geneva.”
Apple has led consumer technology integration in the car for more than a decade. CarPlay brings your car and iPhone together for a thoughtful experience that lets drivers focus on driving, while also tapping into everything they want to do with their iPhone.
Once iPhone is connected to a vehicle with CarPlay integration, Siri helps you easily access your contacts, make calls, return missed calls or listen to voicemails. When incoming messages or notifications arrive, Siri provides an eyes-free experience by responding to requests through voice commands, by reading drivers’ messages and letting them dictate responses or simply make a call.
CarPlay makes driving directions more intuitive by working with Maps to anticipate destinations based on recent trips via contacts, emails or texts, and provides routing instructions, traffic conditions and ETA. You can also simply ask Siri and receive spoken turn-by-turn directions, along with Maps, which will appear on your car’s built-in display.
CarPlay gives drivers access to all of their music, podcasts, audiobooks and iTunes Radio℠ with easy navigation through listening choices from the car’s built-in controls or simply by asking Siri to pull up what you’d like to hear. CarPlay also supports select third-party audio apps including Spotify and iHeartRadio, so you can listen to your favorite radio services or sports broadcast apps while driving.
