During Apple’s Worldwide Developer’s Conference (WWDC), Tim Cook and Co. took the stage to announce many new products, such as the new MacBook Air line, iOS 7, and iOS in the Car. iOS in the Car is a feature that is yet to be seen as it has not been incorporated into any vehicles yet, although it is expected to be put in place by Honda, Acura, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Infiniti, Ferrari, Chevrolet and more in 2014. However, just because it hasn’t been released, or seen, that doesn’t mean that Tim Cook doesn’t see iOS in the Car as one of the more important announcements recently from Apple.
Cook claims that iOS in the Car is “very important,” and even more critical for Apple, the feature is “something people want.” Cook believes that the idea of incorporating the mobile operating system, and features such as Siri, music control and Apple’s Maps is important, and believes that Apple can do it better than any other company. For more information on iOS in the Car, check out the description from Apple below.
iOS in the Car seamlessly integrates your iOS device — and the iOS experience — with your in-dash system. If your vehicle is equipped with iOS in the Car, you can connect your iPhone 5 and interact with it using the car’s built-in display and controls or Siri Eyes Free. Now you can easily and safely make phone calls, access your music, send and receive messages, get directions, and more. It’s all designed to let iPhone focus on what you need, so you can focus on the road.
