iOS in the CarIn July, we reported that Apple was already at work on iOS 7.1 and that it would build in support for the upcoming iOS in the Car feature: “We also understand that Apple is already at work on a point update (perhaps iOS 7.1 or 7.2), and this new version will begin building in support for iOS in the Car. Apple says that iOS in the Car will formally launch in 2014 with several car makers.” iOS in the Car is a feature that allows customers to attach an iOS device to a compatible car center console via either wireless protocols or over a USB cable.
