Apple already has a range of partners for their new Apple CarPlay in car system, which includes the likes of Ferrari, Volvo, Jaguar, Land Rover, BMW, Alfa Romeo and more.
And now it looks like Apple is in talks with Volkswagen to bring Apple CarPlay to their vehicles, and the feature could be available in VW’s 2016 model range.
Apple has had a partnership with VW for their iPods, and they were one of the first companies to offer iPod integration into their vehicles, so you would expect VW to be one of the first companies to sign up to Apple CarPlay, as yet the companies have not come to an agreement.
According to 9 to 5 Mac, the two companies have been in talks for a while to bring CarPlay to Volkswagen’s range, but have yet to reach an agreement.
VW will be looking to introduce Apple CarPlay in their 2016 range of vehicles, although as yet there are no details on which models will get the new in car system.
The first Apple CarPlay equipped vehicles are launching this year, which includes vehicles from Mercedes, Volvo, Honda, Hyundai and Ferrari.
Companies like Audi will launch CarPlay vehicles next year, although Audi are hedging their bets as they are also launching cars with Google’s Android Auto.
