Pioneer working on bringing CarPlay to every other car?
Apple’s launch of iOS 7.1 includes benefits like CarPlay, which is Apple’s new way of interacting with your vehicle. The only sad part is that at the moment, nobody can actually use it, and this is mainly because you require a vehicle that’s compatible with CarPlay, and these won’t see the road until later this year. With the Jailbreak community losing its luster in the last couple of years, many of us have been worried that the only way we’ll use this service is buying a new car, but it seems that a company is planning to solve that for us.
Pioneer Electronics, which we’re sure you’ve heard of, is apparently working on finding a solution for bringing CarPlay to others. The company is famous for its car stereos, and apparently it’s working on a sort of adaptor to its current equipment in order to allow you to use your iPhone on any current Pioneer stereo, or at least some of these.
Obviously it’s hard to tell if Apple will want to allow this, but given the fact that we do know a “Made for iPod” brand as a strategy, it could be that Apple’s strategy to announce vehicle partners was just the tip of the iceberg. We’ll keep you posted on any developments as they happen.
