Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Connected Cars

Social connectivity is becoming more and more important in our everyday lives. However, social media has also been a source of major distractions for those behind the steering wheel of a car. With that in mind, automakers have been doing all they can to make their cars more socially connected, but are doing it in the safest way possible. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto have also integrated their operating systems into vehicles, allowing users to have limited access some of the apps on their smartphones with a voice control feature. Overall, automotive infotainment systems have been getting smarter and smarter.

Besides having Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Capability, other automakers like Dodge (system called UConnect) have beefed up their infotainment systems to allow users to access apps on their smartphone. Ford has also upgraded its SYNC to SYNC3 making it more socially connected.

We must emphasize the fact that, while cars are becoming more socially connected and allow you to interact with social networks while on the road, you should still keep your focus and attention on the road when driving. It is always safer to pull over and use your phone rather than doing it behind the wheel.

While Android Auto is still making its way into vehicles, Apple CarPlay has already started popping up in many cars. Here are some of the cars that have Apple CarPlay and also have Android Auto or will have Android Auto in the coming months.
