New features and improvements coming to Apple CarPlay with iOS 16 update
Apple CarPlay gets an update with iOS 16
Apple CarPlay is a feature that allows you to control your iPhone through your car's infotainment system. With the latest update, you'll be able to use third-party navigation apps like Google Maps and Waze. Siri has also been updated with new features, including the ability to send messages without dictating them.
The update will also bring support for electric vehicle charging stations and parking information in Maps. Other new features include the ability to play music from your iCloud Music Library and support for lossless audio files.
Apple's CarPlay platform is getting a major update with the release of iOS 16. The platform, which allows drivers to control their iPhone while driving, is gaining new features and improvements.
One of the biggest changes is the addition of support for third-party navigation apps. Previously, CarPlay only supported Apple Maps for navigation. Now, it will also support Google Maps and Waze. This should make it much easier for drivers to get where they're going, as they'll be able to use the navigation app of their choice.
CarPlay is also gaining support for Siri Shortcuts. This means that users will be able to create custom voice commands to perform actions on their iPhone. For example, you could say "Siri, play my favorite podcast" or "Siri, text mom I'm running late.
Siri: Smarter and more helpful than ever
In iOS16, Siri is smarter and more helpful than ever. With the new CarPlay features, Siri can now help you with your commute, give you directions, and even control your car's climate and entertainment system. Siri can also keep you up-to-date on the latest news, sports scores, and weather conditions. In addition to these new features, Siri can still do all the things you love like send messages, make calls, and search the web. Whether you're in your car or at home, Siri is there to help you get things done.
Maps: New features and improved design
Since iOS 16, Apple CarPlay has seen some new and improved features, as well as a redesign. One of the most notable changes is the addition of support for Google Maps. This means that you can now use Google Maps with Apple CarPlay, instead of being limited to Apple Maps.
The overall design of Apple CarPlay has also been refined in iOS 16. The interface is now cleaner and simpler, making it easier to navigate while you’re driving.
Music: Curated playlists and easier access to lyrics
Another significant new features is the ability to create and manage custom playlists directly from the infotainment system. This is a major improvement over previous versions, which required users to first create their playlist on their phone before being able to access it in the car.
In addition to making it easier to create and manage playlists, iOS 16 also makes it easier to access lyrics while listening to music. Now, when a song is playing, the lyrics will automatically scroll across the screen so that you can sing along without having to fumble around with your phone. This is a great feature for those who like to listen to music while driving but don't want to take their eyes off the road.
Overall, the new features in iOS 16 make it easier than ever to enjoy music while driving.
Messaging: Quicker ways to stay in touch
With Apple CarPlay under iOS16, messaging is quicker and easier than ever. You can now send and receive text messages, as well as make and receive phone calls, all while keeping your eyes on the road.
This new messaging feature is perfect for those who are always on the go and need to stay in touch with family, friends, and colleagues. With CarPlay, you can have peace of mind knowing that you can stay connected without having to take your hands off the wheel.
