Ford Unleashes Siri Eyes Free Support to Over 5 Million Vehicles


Siri Eyes Free

Although not really CarPlay news, but if you have a Ford dating back to as old as 2011, then Ford’s latest news on their ‘Siri Eyes Free’ support might be of interest to you, your Ford vehicle, and using your iPhone in your car.

Ford’s Siri Eyes Free support rolled out some two months ago, with the launch of version 3.8 of the second-generation SYNC software, however it isn’t until now that the American manufacturer has made it official; announcing that Siri Eyes Free will work with not just its vehicles rolling out of their factories today, but also Ford vehicles dating back to 2011.

‘Siri Eyes Free’ in Ford vehicles allows its owners to connect their iPhone and use a dedicated hardware button on the steering wheel to interact with Apple’s own virtual assistant, helping to minimize driver distraction, and using voice recognition and spoken responses to allow drivers to interact with their iPhone without the need to look at the screen.

“SYNC, Ford’s entertainment and communications system, was designed to be flexible and updatable, just like other mobile technologies, so our customers are able to get the most out of their smartphones while behind the wheel,” said Sherif Marakby, director, Ford Electronics and Electrical Systems Engineering. “Siri Eyes-Free is another great voice-activated feature that not only adds convenience but helps our customers keep their eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.”

Ford is one of Apple’s official CarPlay partners, however they have still not announced any full CarPlay support in their vehicles. Rumours are we should be hearing more about Ford’s own full CarPlay integration ‘very soon.’
