Apple Siri Technology Integrating With 9 Automakers
Apple’s Siri technology is about to get a new home. Apple announced on Monday at its World Wide Developers Conference that the company will soon integrate its voice-activated service with 9 automakers.
A slide show at the conference showed off an iPhone mounted in the center console of a BWM dashboard. According to Apple the integration will allow for an “Eyes-Free” approach.
It’s being assumed at this time that existing voice buttons will be placed on the vehicles steering wheel, allowing users to call up the iPhone’s virtual assistant.
Along with BMW Apple will roll out the integrated Siri service to Audi, Chrysler, Honda, General Motors, Jaguar, Land Rover and Toyota.
Apple has not disclosed exactly how Siri will be implemented.
Already announced for Siri integration was Mercedes’ A-Class vehicles which will roll off the production line and begin selling in Europe later this year.
