Here’s how Apple explains their CarPlay solution:

CarPlay is a smarter, safer way to use your iPhone in the car. CarPlay takes the things you want to do with your iPhone while driving and puts them right on your car’s built-in display. You can get directions, make calls, send and receive messages, and listen to music, all in a way that allows you to stay focused on the road. Just plug in your iPhone and go.

CarPlay is compatible with seven of the company’s smartphones, starting with the iPhone 5 or newer.
