Apple Announces Apple CarPlay

At Loop Attachment we are dedicated to strengthening the relationship between people and their electronics through intelligently designed methods of attachment. So when Apple announced this week that it would be partnering with automakers to create in-car entertainment systems for iPhone we were thrilled. Just as our cases add a secondary use to the iPhone, this new platform will expand opportunities for using the devices we depend on for music, information and more.

Known as CarPlay, it is being reported that the setup will include a console touchscreen as well as buttons on the steering wheel that activate Siri. CarPlay will allow drivers to make calls, listen to voicemails, hear and dictate text messages, get directions via Apple Maps and access Spotify and other music services.

Ferrari praised CarPlay calling it a “smarter, safer and more fun way to use iPhone in the car”. If they come out with a model that has CarPlay integrated and need test drivers our team would be happy to volunteer. Just let us know Ferrari.
