Following the preview in 2022, Apple unveiled its next-generation CarPlay technology at the most recent WWDC (World Wide Developer Conference). The new interface is set to be launched later this year, with more control capabilities and customisation possibilities. Unlike the existing version, the upcoming Apple CarPlay will support numerous vehicle systems, including HAV controls, infotainment, driver's instrument display, and passenger display (if equipped). It will give users control over several key functions, including off-road statistics, climate control, driving modes, and ADAS (Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems).

Next-Gen Apple CarPlay: What's More?

Apple claims that the new CarPlay will be compatible with all kinds of displays on the dashboard, enabling more flexible and dynamic use of available space based on the needs of different carmakers. It further added that automakers can now tailor the interface to the features of their vehicles. For example, they can add buttons for seat heaters or modify the temperature control menu to match the number of seats and climatic zones.

It will now also be possible for users to customise gauge setups and information layouts according to their preferences. For example, a passenger screen may display navigation maps, while the central screen can show additional gauges. Notably, automakers' cooperation with Apple to co-develop their systems is a prerequisite for the level of integration.

According to the tech company, the latest version would accommodate a larger variety of notifications on the infotainment and instrument screens related to off-road gauges, performance gauges, inclinometers, and tyre pressure warnings.
