Currently, Apple’s CarPlay is an infotainment system, with the advantage of displaying messages, notifications and more information from the iPhone.
However, a report of Bloomberg revealed that Apple wants CarPlay to do much more than that. The report states that Apple wants CarPlay to be able to control a car’s instruments and features, like air conditioning as well as interacting with the car’s dashboard systems and instrument groups as well.
Apparently, Apple is working on a system that would allow CarPlay to access features like The car’s temperature control, the speedometer, the radio and even the car seats.
However, as many of these functions are developed by the automakers themselves, Apple would need the automakers’ cooperation to do this.
That said, the report suggests that this project is still in the early stages of development, so it may take a while before you see it.
