In recent years, the latest vehicles have inherited an immense amount of technology. Oftentimes car fanatics inherit an infotainment system they grow familiar with just to retain another when it’s time for a new automobile. In addition to alternating infotainment systems, software updates bring added features, enhance existing ones, and seek to make interfaces easy for users to operate. 

Yet, many loyal Blue Oval fanatics find it challenging to complain about their Ford vehicles’ Apple CarPlay and or Android Auto. Nevertheless, with Apple’s recent announcement, substantial transformations are underway, and Blue Oval fans will find it challenging to step away from their Ford vehicles.  

Apple, the tech empire, announced the iOS 16 preview. Additionally, Apple disclosed that the next-generation variation of Apple CarPlay would cover every screen inside the car. So, not only will the vehicle’s infotainment screen strengthen the Apple CarPlay’s display, but also the digital instrument cluster and all other in-vehicle screens. 

The new Apple CarPlay configuration will premiere a more cohesive appeal. Additionally, users will be free to oversee the temperature of the car and even the radio via the Apple CarPlay interface.  Furthermore, the Apple CarPlay interface lets consumers customize whatever fits them, such as choosing a curated gauge cluster design or the perfect widget. 

The future is right around the corner with the next generation of Apple CarPlay. The CarPlay interface is unique and fitted to each vehicle. Therefore, tailoring the Apple CarPlay interface is necessary to accommodate the different shapes and screen sizes essential for every Ford vehicle. In addition to interface accommodation, Siri also acquires new responsibilities. For instance, Siri’s auto-send function operates after a message is read back. Furthermore, fueling and driving task apps will also become functional for enthusiasts. 

The new Apple CarPlay integration is tremendous for America’s favorite automaker mainly because Ford will deliver compatibility with the next-gen variation of Apple’s impeccably designed future. 

Last but certainly not least, no one forgot about the Android lovers out there. As a matter of fact, the Blue Oval automaker and Google’s Android operating system, along with third-party apps, will make their way inside Ford vehicles by next year. Yes, that includes the outstanding Ford F-150 Lightning as well.
