Apple announced today as part of WWDC that their next mobile operating system, iOS 12, will launch CarPlay with support for Google Maps, Waze, and other third-part map apps. iOS 12 will launch in September of this year, often with a new iteration of iPhones.
CarPlay offers one of the most intuitive user interfaces available in today’s vehicles. It mimics the iPhone user interface, but at a larger scale in order to make it safe to operate while driving.
Siri will also get several updates for iOS 12, becoming smarter and more intuitive. Siri ties directly into CarPlay’s voice dictation and search functionalities.
Together, both updates will make driving safer than it is today.
