March 5, 2014—Apple announced Monday that an automotive version of its mobile operating system, CarPlay, will debut in Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo vehicles this week.

Apple said the feature will allow users to access functions of their iPhones on the vehicles’ infotainment screens.

CarPlay connects an iPhone 5 or later model to the vehicle, allowing drivers to make calls, use maps, listen to music and access text messages through a touch-screen console.

Apple said Honda, BMW, Ford, General Motors, Nissan and Toyota are also expected to integrate CarPlay.

Vehicles with CarPlay are expected to start shipping later this year.
