Report: Apple CarPlay to be offered in over 40 different new car models by end of 2015

A $10,000 watch wasn’t the only announcement to come out of Apple’s press event Monday; there was some uplifting news for the car world as well. Yesterday CEO Tim Cook said the company’s CarPlay interface is slated to ship on over 40 new models by the end of 2015, and that every major automaker “has committed to delivering” it.

Aside from being an obvious boon to adoption, that news also places Apple’s tech ahead of Google’s competing Android Auto software in the race to ubiquity. Right now, the Android website lists 28 partners, just shy of Apple’s 33. But the difference makers are big ones; at the moment, Android Auto lacks cooperation from Toyota, BMW, and PSA Peugeot Citroën, to name a few.

Fortunately, if you’re a user of Apple products who will not be purchasing a new vehicle this year, Apple has also partnered with Alpine and Pioneer. Great news if you’re looking to drag your ‘93 Civic kicking and screaming into the 21st century.

Apple first announced CarPlay about this time last year, but unlike the tech industry, things move ironically slowly in the automotive business. Fortunately, the world shouldn’t have to wait much longer for a competent in-dash solution – which is more than can be said if you’re trying to place an order for that new watch.
