‘iOS in the Car’ Feature in iOS 7 to Work Over WiFi, USB and AirPlay
Apple announced at WWDC 2013 the feature ‘iOS in the Car’, part of upcoming iOS 7 this fall, will allow your iPhone’s screen to show up on in-dash displays. This essentially removes the need for users to grab their iPhones as displays will enable users to call people by voice, see turn-by-turn directions, read messages, play music and more, all via Eye-Free Siri.
As for now this feature will work? 9to5Mac reports ‘iOS in the Car’ will work over WiFi, in addition to USB/AirPlay, as discovered by @hamzasood, who was able to dig up a menu for Accessory Developer options within iOS 7.
Hamza Sood, who has located several hidden features in iOS 7, corroborates this with a finding inside of internal Accessory Developer options in iOS 7.
These settings say iOS in the Car can work over WiFi, and this goes nicely with our independent iOS in the Car over AirPlay claims.
Apple mentioned ‘iOS in the Car’ will be available within cars of the following manufacturers, starting in 2014: Honda, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Ferrari, Chevrolet, Infinity, Kia, Hyundai, Volvo, Acura, Opel and Jaguar.
