iCar

12 Mar

iOS 7.1 included CarPlay! Now I can use my iPhone hands-free in my car! As long as it’s one of “select” cars from 2014. It is not.

CarPlay is Apple’s plan for incorporating their software into vehicles, so the big question is whether this is going to be great and work or whether it’s going to be like iTunes on the Motorola ROKR was Apple’s plan for incorporating their software into cell phones. We all know that sucked so massively that it led to Apple taking it all back and making the iPhone instead in a great (and entirely typical of Apple) show of “Fine, we’ll do it ourselves.”

So will Apple eventually design their own iVehicle? I’d love to see it.

Probably won’t though, if only because Tesla is already doing exactly what Apple would do if they were going to manufacture cars.

Of course Apple could buy Tesla…
