Hot off the heals of TomTom’s announcement of its upcoming CarPlay app next year, Waze has begun the rollout of its CarPlay update to its private beta members.

This means that it is unlikely that we will see the public release of the iOS 12 supported update tomorrow, when iOS 12 is due to release to the public.

The CarPlay compatible app update for Waze is rolling out to beta testers now, and although their Twitter account has mentioned that the public release will be available in a few weeks, they have yet to formally announce its release date. It looks more likely that the update will be available worldwide in October, giving beta testers around a month to iron out any issues found so far.

iOS 12 allows existing and new third-party navigation apps the ability to run on Apple CarPlay. Via Apple’s new CarPlay navigation APIs, developers are able to display their own visual map content below the standard Apple CarPlay interface and controls. Fans of Waze will have to live with an interface that will not be as like-for-like as the what you see on your iPhone display, but the image shown above shows other ‘Wazers’ on the road as well as speed, the ability to leave reports and the usual display of hazards, warnings and police.

No updated screenshots have been released of the Waze beta version. This is likely due to beta testers being under a tight NDA. The most recent look of Waze on Apple CarPlay is the image shown above, which was shown during this year’s WWDC developer session for Apple CarPlay Audio and Navigation Apps.

We’ll have more news on Waze app’s release, as soon as we have it.
