Apple has finally listened to its CarPlay users by allowing third-party navigation app support via its upcoming iOS 12 software update.

For the first time on Apple’s in-car platform, applications such as Waze and Google Maps will run (without a jailbreak) on the upcoming iOS 12 update for your iPhone.

Releasing later this Autumn/Fall, owners of an iPhone 5S or higher will be able to update to the new iOS 12 update.

Little else on this topic was shown during Apple’s WWDC keynote, other than a CarPlay display showing Waze, Google Maps and other third-party navigation apps.

This is great news for existing CarPlay owners who struggle or are frustrated with Apple’s own rather lack lustre Maps app.

Developers will have access to the iOS 12 beta software update from today, with a public beta like becoming available at a much later date. It isn’t clear whether third-party apps such as Waze and Google will be ready as soon as the beta becomes available, however over the next few months I am sure support will become more available from these and many other third-party navigation apps.

We will have more news on CarPlay and the iOS 12 update as soon as it becomes available.
