WWDC 2013: Apple Reveals iOS in the Car, Syncs iPhone 5 and In-Dash Displays

Apple unveiled iOS in the Car today at WWDC 2013, a platform that integrates iOS devices with the a car’s in-dash display/navigation system. With vehicles equipped with iOS in the Car, users will be able to connect their iPhone 5 and access Maps, messages, iTunes Radio phone calls and more. The service will also access user travel data to display maps and drive times to destinations in real time. By utilizing Siri Eyes Free, access to apps on your iPhone can be accessed via voice, leaving drivers to focus on the road rather than their devices.  iOS in the Car will be coming in 2014, with vehicle manufacturers such as Honda, Mercedes, Ferrari, Nissan, Chevrolet, Kia, Hyundai, Jaguar and Volvo pledging their support, as well as others.
