Today Apple announced that a number of leading car manufacturers, like Honda, Ford, Ferrari, BMW and Nissan, will soon be introducing CarPlay into their motors, an intuitive in-car iPhone system that uses helpful little Siri to make driving easier and more fun.

CarPlay will provide iPhone users with a way to add Apple’s iOS right into their cars, which includes music, messages, calls and much more all from an interface that’s designed to be as eyes-free as possible. Obviously Apple’s Maps will be integrated into your driving experience too and with the help of Siri will work to replace any kind of GPS system you already have by providing you with turn-by-turn navigation to get you where you need to go.

“CarPlay has been designed from the ground up to provide drivers with an incredible experience using their iPhone in the car,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of iPhone and iOS Product Marketing.

Apple CarPlay is available as an update to iOS 7 and works with Lightning-enabled iPhones, which includes iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c and iPhone 5. CarPlay will debut at this week’s Geneva Motor Show and will be available in select cars that’ll begin shipping throughout 2014.
