After CarPlay, Apple wants to control with the iPhone and the car air conditioning, seats etc

CarPlay is an Apple standard that allows the car’s infotainment system to become the “mirror” of the screen and the controller for an iOS device, namely the iPhone. CarPlay is available from iPhone 5 running iOS 7.1 or later.

Seven years after CarPlay changed the way millions of us communicate, navigate and listen to music in our vehicles, Apple wants to extend CarPlay’s influence on cars.

Her latest project is “IronHeart”, where Apple is developing technology that will allow the iPhone to access and control the air conditioning system of a car. In addition, through the mobile the driver will be able to control the frequencies (bass, middle, treble) of the audio system, the balance of the sound played through the speakers, the electrically adjustable seats and other functions.

The new technology relies heavily on the phone rather than the vehicle operating system, such as Android Automotive. The latter was developed by Google, Intel and automakers and was designed to be integrated into the factory vehicle operating system.

Instead, the IronHeart is similar to Apple’s HomeKit, which lets you control functions such as lights, cameras, thermostats and sockets in your home via Apple smartphones.
