Volkswagen has announced that they will be bringing Apple CarPlay and Google’s Android Auto to their vehicles in 2015.
The company has announced that both Apple CarPlay and Google’s Android Auto will be available through the MIB II in car systems, which are already in some 2014 vehicles and will be available in their 2015 vehicles in the U.S.
Later this year, VW will introduce the second generation “modular infotainment platform” (MIB II) in the United States. Along with the new infotainment system, MirrorLink™ will also be made available for the first time, integrating the apps and operating layout of numerous smartphones (including Samsung, HTC, LG and Sony) into cars. When MirrorLink™ is introduced, two other interfaces will also be launched under the App-Connect label: CarPlay™ (Apple®) and Android Auto™ (Google®). Simultaneously, VW will also launch CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ in the European market.
