Is Apple’s Motive Automotive with iOS 7?

Lately I’ve got a lot to read about the various speculations related to iOS 7. Among all, one guess is about Apple shifting gear from Mobile to Motor meaning with iOS 7, Apple plans to move into the in-car integration space later this year. Now I believe there’s a high chance that Apple’s Siri can be your new Chauffeur.

This is because right now Siri is available in Beta only and the company’s intention to take it to the next level is quite apparent with Apple already working with car manufacturers to integrate Siri into select voice control systems.

There’s also a speculation that an iPhone could be plugged into a car and an optimized, redesigned version of Apple Maps will appear on the car’s built-in display instead of a proprietary GPS system found in many cars. Even this could be true because Apple itself hints on its website that Siri can be used to control the Maps functions and other iOS features.

I’m also very inquisitive about the WWDC which is to be held very soon because you never know if Apple’s planning to launch this new in-car integration at this, or other upcoming events.

But that’s not all, there is a lot that is being speculated. Find More…

Apple’s Siri can be your new Chauffeur

I’ve read Apple is gearing for iCar. It seems that Siri technology is behind it. Some auto makers like Audi, BMW, Chrysler, Ferrari, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes and Toyota are finding ways to get iOS apps to work on their dashboards with others like Chevrolet and Cadillac already offering Siri integration in their Spark EV and the 2014 Cadillac CTS respectively.

Now if you’ve been thinking that Apple is just mocking other major players like Microsoft who powered Ford’s SYNC technology then you may probably be wrong, because Apple’s late CEO and the great man, “Steve Jobs dream was to design an iCar before he died”, according to longtime Apple board member Mickey Drexler.

But Apple’s Siri Eyes Free is just the beginning because the company isn’t content with Siri integration as the ONLY automotive strategy.

So iPhone users will now have one more reason to look up on company’s future innovations. [Read More…]
