Apple adds Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Mazda and more partners for CarPlay

carplay

Apple has just updated its official CarPlay website showing several more vehicle manufacturing partners plan to support the company's iOS-based car technology.

The newly announced partners include Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Mazda, Jeep, Abarth, Alfa Romeo and Ram. The list also adds Audi, which the car maker itself confirmed a few days ago. All of the new partners plan to integrate support for CarPlay in at least some of their models, but specifics have not yet been revealed.

CarPlay will launch sometime later this fall in cars made by Hyundai, Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo, and Honda. Audi has already revealed plans to add CarPlay in some of its cars planned for release in 2015. In addition, Pioneer and Alpine are supposed to offer a way for anyone to add CarPlay to their current vehicle, but again specifics have not yet been announced.

What do you think about all of these new car manufacturers jumping onto the CarPlay bandwagon?

FORD please replace Sync and MyFord touch with CarPlay. Or at least have the option.

There was some press already about Ford dropping sync for BlackBerry's QNX, so I'm sure Car Play / Android Auto is an obvious choice for them given that it needs QNX for it work.

Ok. I happen to really enjoy my Ford, it is fun to drive, economical and the quality and the customer service have been great. I'm glad that you have personally found your favorite conveyance in either Honda or Toyota. However we aren't here to discuss the merits of one persons car selection over another, but the implementation of Apple's Car play in current and future models of automobile. I would like to think that in this instance "the more the merrier" would be a common tone.

However I do find it interesting that you complain about American "Greed" but have selected one of the more expensive (American) brands for both your phone and tablet needs (per your profile) when I'm sure brands like, Sony, LG, Asus, Toshiba, or Samsung would provide an equatable experience for you.

As with my Apple products so with my Ford, I personally don't mind paying for the hardware and user experience that I find the most pleasurable to use. Everyone is capable of making their own decisions and I'm glad you made yours.
