Integration follows 'intensive dialog' with Apple
Audi has announced plans to offer CarPlay-equipped vehicles beginning in 2015. The integration is said to be the result of "intensive dialog" with Apple, and work at Audi's Silicon Valley development lab. Which models will get CarPlay, however, has yet to be revealed, and it's not known if custom apps or features will be used to distinguish Audi's take on the platform.
The luxury carmaker has already confirmed its intent to support Android Auto, Google's take on car integration, also starting in 2015. Many companies should in fact support both CarPlay and Android Auto going forward, often in the same vehicle.
