Promoted as a “smarter, safer way to use your iPhone in the car,” CarPlay allows your iPhone to handle much of the digital controls.
There’s no argument that a phone offers numerous benefits in a car, fron navigation and real time traffic updates to information about a last minute change of plans. But I doubt many people think actually using a phone while driving is safe.
The WWDC apparently revealed that CarPlay will support wireless in the car, a great convenience although we all know how quickly the phone battery runs down when using navigation. Most will plug in anyway.
