What Apple fans have been waiting for with bated breath. No, we are not talking about the new Appie iWatch here, what we are talking about, is Apple’s new CarPlay in car infotainment operating system! Although we haven't really had the chance to explore one of the factory fitted systems expected in the likes of upcoming Mercedes Benz, Jaguar, Hyundai and a whole host of other cars yet, this, the F970 Dual Din infotainment system by Pioneer is supposed to be just as good. So lets answer some of the questions we have been asked about Apple’s new CarPlay. Plug and play. All you need is your iPhone’s USB cable and you are good to go. That said you do need to have an iPhone 5 or higher to use it and it does need to have the latest firmware update to sync seamlessly with Pioneer’s hardware.
