Volvo Posts Its New Video Of Apple's CarPlay In Action

Earlier today, we reported to you that Apple has announced launching CarPlay at the Geneva Motor Show. Today car maker Volvo has just posted a new video which shows CarPlay in action.. Unlike CarPlay implementations by other vendors such as Ferrari and Mercedes-Benz, Volvo took the feature to the next level.

Specifically, Volvo’s system allows for both CarPlay and Volvo controls to be available to drivers simultaneously on the vehicle’s large touchscreen. I’ve included the video for your viewing pleasure right after the break…

Check out the video:

Volvo also issued a media release noting that its new XC90 SUV, which will be introduced later in 2014, is the first Volvo car to offer integration with Apple’s “widely-used and hugely admired” mobile operating system.

Forthcoming Volvo models based on the new Scalable Product Architecture will get CarPlay later in 2014. The ability to connect an iPhone to the car’s dashboard system via Wi-Fi will be enabled “in the near future,” Volvo said. 
Volvo’s unique portrait screen gives users the benefit of having both Volvo and Apple content co-existing simultaneously, removing the need to switch between a dedicated car and iPhone screen.
CarPlay launched with support in select vehicles from Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo.

This includes such names as the BMW Group, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai Motor Company, Jaguar Land Rover, Kia Motors, Mitsubishi Motors, Nissan Motor Company, PSA Peugeot Citroën, Subaru, Suzuki and Toyota Motor Corp, who all confirmed plans to support CarPlay in their 2014 vehicles.

CarPlay will be enabled in the upcoming version of iOS which should be very soon...
