Integration between your Apple iPhone and your car deepens in iOS 7

Integration between your Apple iPhone and your car deepens in iOS 7
Apple has announced deeper integration between you and your car for iOS 7. And with the ability to access maps, messages and more, this goes beyond plugging in your Apple iPhone to listen to your tunes. We're not saying that you can't hear your tunes while motoring about, but Apple is adding many more features. The Cupertino based tech titan is calling this iOS in the Car and takes in-car "integration to a whole other level."

The cars involved with this deeper integration to iOS 7 will be coming to market in 2014 and includes autos manufactured by Chevrolet, Ferrari, Honda, Hyundi, Kia, Jaguar, Mercedes, Nissan and Volvo. Apple is saying that using the new features will allow drivers to keep their eyes on the road. The only downside here is that you might have to trust Apple's mapping application to find the way to your destination.

hope they also allow you to use android/windows phones/BBOS10 it would suck really hard if it only supported iOS (not a bad OS, but choice is great)

Ignorance is a disease do you really think these car manufacturers force people to use this no that's why cars have different packages you can buy so if you do not want it you do not have to take it. If you want something else just go buy it and install it.

Smartphone OS support is up to each car manufacturer. For example, BMW would only support iOS with their iDrive system. Recently BMW stated they would add support for Android. When and which version(s) of Android, there is silence from BMW. There are gaps in the support for iOS. Whether that is the fault of Apple or BMW, no one is fessing up.
