June 14, 2013—Apple Inc. recently announced iOS in the Car, a new platform that mirrors your iPhone via the dashboard screen.

The platform would allow users to make phone calls, play music, display Apple Maps and receive iMessages, either by using the car’s controls or by giving voice commands to Siri through the sound system.

Apple says that 95 percent of vehicles sold today are already able to work directly with iOS devices for music and playback control.

Starting in 2014, automakers that will offer iOS in the Car include Acura, Chevrolet, Ferrari, Honda, Hyundai, Infiniti, Jaguar, Kia, Opel, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan and Volvo.

The announcement was made during Apple’s 2013 Worldwide Developers Conference earlier this week.
