Apple CarPlay

How does Apple CarPlay work?

Apple CarPlay allows iPhone owners to connect their phone to a car and show an iOS screen on the infotainment system display. The driver can then access certain apps for use in the car. The Siri voice assistant feature is important here, because it allows the driver to talk to the system without taking their eyes off the road.
