CarPlay Coming to BMW in 2017
Rumours are a foot in the BMW camp, as recent sources state that BMW is experimenting with Apple’s CarPlay platform in their upcoming vehicles that will arrive in 2017.
With the addition of manufacturer applications in iOS9, this will allows vehicles with solo displays (like those found in BMW and Mercedes) the ability to integrate in-car control features such as climate control without the need to create any physical on-dashboard controls.
BMW will introduce CarPlay into their line of 2016/17 models, so I am sure we will hear more from BMW in Q3/Q4 2016.
