At its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2022 event, Apple revealed details of its next generation CarPlay system, which will work hand in hand with the release of iOS 16. According to the company the next generation of CarPlay will feature much deeper integration with a vehicle’s hardware. As a result, it will be able to provide content for multiple screens within the vehicle, creating an experience that is unified and consistent.
Deeper integration with the vehicle will also enable users to do things like control the radio or change the climate directly through CarPlay, and using the vehicle data, it will also be able to render the speed, fuel level, temperature and more on the instrument cluster.
Users will be able to personalize their driving experience by choosing different gauge cluster designs, and with added support for widgets, users will have at-a-glance information from Apple Weather and Music apps right on their car’s dashboard. Details of specific vehicle integrations will follow in 2023.
