The CarPlay integration permits for the iPhone to be connected to the vehicle allowing for drivers to have an instant companion with Siri on board as the voice of CarPlay. Voice control keeps Siri busy as a personal assistant allowing the driver to stay in total control for safe driving.

Siri will be able to read out messages sent to drivers and then take dictation in order to respond for her driving boss.

The CarPlay built-in display is ready to assist by utilizing Apple Maps to showcase specific directions, traffic and estimated time of arrival as well as the drivers choices for listening entertainment enjoyment. According to the CarPlay website, CarPlay also supports favorite iPhone apps such as Podcasts, Beats Music, iHeartRadio, Spotify and Sticher with the anticipation of more to come.
