Apple CarPlay facelift unveiled

Last month Google unveiled a significant design update for its Android Auto smartphone mirroring system, so it's no surprise Apple used today's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) keynote to whip the covers off revisions to its CarPlay setup.

Volkswagen adds Siri integration to Car-Net app

Volkswagen has added Siri capability to its Car-Net smartphone application, allowing owners to use their voice for functions like locking, unlocking and honking the horn. Owners need to be running iOS12 on their device, and can then just say things like "Hey Siri, lock my car" to make the Car-Net integration work. Along with the iPhone, you're able to control your car using an Apple Watch, for a proper Get Smart vibe in your Volkswagen.
