A smarter, safer way to use your iPhone in the car, CarPlay takes the things you want to do with your iPhone while driving and puts them on your car’s built-in display. You can get directions, make calls, send and receive messages, and listen to music, all while staying focused on the road.

Creating Apps for CarPlay

Audio apps can deliver music, news, podcasts, and more using a consistent design that’s optimized for use in the car. Apps by automakers can provide vehicle-specific controls and displays to keep drivers connected without leaving CarPlay. Messaging and VoIP apps that work with Siri can be updated to appear in CarPlay. And starting with iOS 12, navigation apps can provide detailed maps, destination search, route guidance, and user notifications.
