Despite the rumors, Ford doesn’t think it would be a good idea to remove Apple CarPlay from its vehicles.
Apple Carplay is one of the best additions for a smart experience while driving (by the way, here we mention the best apps to use in CarPlay). There are already many companies that have placed this Apple program, but as technology advances by leaps and bounds, it is quite possible that car manufacturing companies want to develop their own entertainment systems.
For example, the American giant, Ford, would have mentioned that starting in 2023, it was going to phase out Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility of their new vehicles. But this has turned out to be a rumor, or at least that’s what Ford CEO Jim Farlay has mentioned.
Ford will keep CarPlay for a long time
In an interview with the Wall Street JournalJim Farlay has mentioned that the company no Do you have plans to drop Carplay support for your vehicles?at least not very soon.
70 percent of our Ford customers in the US are Apple customers. Why would you go to an Apple customer and say good luck?
Also in the interview Ford’s CEO has also confirmed that it is true that Ford has tried to develop new communication technologies. But, he has also admitted that the technology giants, Google and Apple, are very advanced in the development of information systems:
In terms of content, we lost that battle 10 years ago. So be realistic, because you’re not going to make a lot of money from the content inside the vehicle. It will be security, protection, partial autonomy and productivity in our eyes. So that content relationship is between you, The Wall Street Journal, and the client. I don’t want to get in the middle of that, but Tesla and other companies believe otherwise. They want to have total control over the inner experience.
By the way, Apple could launch the new next-generation CarPlay experience this yearwhich will fully focus on the integration of new navigation and safety technologies that semi-autonomous vehicles have.
