Apple’s iPhone finds a home with Volkswagen’s iBeetle

18
The Volkswagen Beetle and Apple iPhone seem like they belong together, like peas and carrots. So in a way, this announcement made by VW at the Shanghai Auto Show seems overdue.

When you think about what might go into an iOS integrated automobile, you might imagine a suite that rivals existing systems like General Motors’ MyLink or Ford’s Sync. The reality with this forthcoming iBeetle is a little less however.

The first thing about the new iBeetle is a dock for iPhone right at the top of the center console. As long as the iPhone has the right app installed, you will be able to play music, have messages spoken to you as well as take pictures.

Unfortunately, that will be about it. There will not be the tight integration as found in the competing infotainment systems. The iBeetle will be available as a coupe or convertible and will be feature some unique décor. It will reach the US market in early 2014.
