What Apple’s September 9th Press Event Means for CarPlay


Apple Event Sept 2015

After much rumour over the past few weeks, Apple has confirmed that its press event will be held on September 9th. Streamable on Apple.com, iTunes, Apple TV and on iOS devices.

At this event it is rumoured that the new iPhone 6s and updated iPads (possibly a large iPad Pro) are also likely, but what us here at CarPlay Life are most excited about is more information (maybe a release date) for iOS 9.

The next firmware update for Apple’s iPhone, iPad and iPod will feature a number of fine-tuned features, most desirable will be Wireless CarPlay. Now, before we get all excited, this doesn’t mean your existing CarPlay enabled receiver (if you have one) will magically turn into a Wireless CarPlay system.

It has already been confirmed by some aftermarket manufacturers, such as Pioneer, who have said that their current systems will not support Wireless CarPlay. There is still hope for Alpine and their ILX-700/007 receiver, with its Wireless chip and reps saying that a Bluetooth dongle will enable Wireless CarPlay when it releases, but you’ll need to take a handful of salt with that information.

iOS 9 will feature mostly refinements, speed improvements for older iOS devices and support for Wireless CarPlay – once compatible systems are released. 

Let’s hope, after September’s event, we will hear more from Pioneer, Alpine, Kenwood and others with their 2015/2016 Wireless CarPlay systems, or will we have to wait until CES 2016?!
Be sure to check back here at CarPlay Life on September 9th where we will go through all the juicy Apple iOS 9 and CarPlay details.
