In March, Apple announced the CarPlay system that will allow them to move even further into helping people improve their lives. This will let users make calls, receive and send text messages, and use a GPS system, without having to look at their phones.

Making the roads safer has been a long time goal of the tech world, especially as more people begin to use their cell phones in their cars, potentially putting the lives of themselves and those around them in danger. Currently, two thirds of people say they have used their phones while they are driving, which is a scary figure.

CarPlay will accomplish this using a digital dashboard that will be mounted in the car, basically giving you a phone that is internally mounted and easier to see and use. It does this by drawing data transfers from your phone, though, so you will still have to purchase an iPhone in order to use it. A Lightening port is used to do this and ensures that the information travels fast and without problems, as long as Apple doesn’t decide to once again update the kind of connections that they use on their devices.

It isn’t yet known just how many cars are going to be using CarPlay, but with an average life of 11 years, a car will not be in danger of becoming obsolete due to this addition, even though smartphone users tend to upgrade almost once a year.
