CarPlay is one such cool feature of infotainment of Apple. From the very first day of the launch of this product in 2014, Honda promised to support it but gradually it became somewhat indifferent. However, Honda picked up the pace and conveyed CarPlay in 2016 Civic and Accord and 2017 Ridgeline. It also announced the return of CarPlay in one of the most wanted on road car, the2017 Accord.

What role does CarPlay Play?
CarPlay is a very useful and important feature as it connects the car screen with the iPhone which helps in easy dealing with the phone while driving. Messages, calls, music, maps all can be controlled quite smoothly with this feature and the experiences are powered by Siri.
Presently iOS 9.3 version is available to the user which has improved maps and Apple Music playlist than the iOS 9 one. However, soon the iOS 10 will be launched with some upgradation and will smooth the experience more. People will be able to rearrange and remove apps through Carplay and the Apple Music will be more streamlined. A welcome news indeed!
