iOS in the Car

iOS in the Car

Apple announced its plans to bring iOS to your car back in June, and we’re finally getting a peek at what that might look like in action. While we’re still waiting on vehicles that actually support Apple’s iOS in the Car integration to see how it truly works, developer Steven Troughton-Smith was able to look at an early version of it by emulating a car’s display from his Mac, using code from iOS 7.0.3. In a video, Troughton-Smith demonstrates how Apple Maps looks under the recent version of iOS’ in-car integration. The actual map takes up the car’s entire display in most cases, with translucent control panels partially masking its top and bottom. On top are touchscreen shortcuts to search for a location, browse bookmarks, visit recent destinations, and look up information about your location and nearby traffic.
