Apple has unveiled, a new vehicle integration system ‘Eyes Free’, that will allow drivers to access Siri with a tap on their steering wheel. With the increase in the installation of the system by automakers, Apple may once again reframe how the world uses technology.
During the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference at the Moscone Center in San Francisco on Monday, the company’s CEO Tim Cook confirmed that the Siri personal assistant will soon be offered in your car.
Cook said that within the next 12 months, drivers will be able to push a button on the steering wheel that will connect them directly with the Siri personal assistant.
A bunch of automakers including BMW, General Motors, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, Audi, Toyota, Chrysler and Honda have signed on for the experience. Ford is not on the list and we’re guessing the reason behind that has something to with SYNC and Microsoft.
