Apple will teach iPhone smartphones to control climate and seats in cars

Apple, according to Bloomberg, intends to significantly expand the capabilities of its CarPlay platform. Motorists will be able to use iPhone smartphones to receive information from vehicle sensors and control various on-board systems.

Recall that CarPlay allows you to use the on-board computer of a car in conjunction with a smartphone to make calls, interact with maps, listen to music, exchange messages, etc. In this case, control can be performed in several ways: using buttons on the steering wheel, touch screen or voice assistant.

As it is now known, Apple is working on a project codenamed IronHeart. It is assumed that using a smartphone, motorists will be able to remotely change the operating mode of the air conditioner, activate heated glass and adjust the position of the seats.

In addition, the new platform will allow you to receive information about the temperature overboard and in the cabin, as well as view the readings of on-board instruments. Finally, it will be possible to configure the speaker system via a smartphone: adjust the equalizer, balance, etc.

The data received through the system will theoretically allow Apple to launch new services for motorists. It is noted that while the IronHeart project is at an early stage, cooperation with automakers will be required to fully implement it.
