iOS 7.1 beta 2 details to new features for Cars

Apple has just updated the iOS 7.1 to beta 2 in which several changes have been made, one of them is the new option in the settings tab which says “Car Display”. Apple has been working on improving the integration of iOS in the car as they revealed at WWDC, it looks like iOS 7.1 will be the version in which this will be fully integrated into iOS.

Honda has recently announced that they will be providing full integration for the iPhone, specially making use of its powerful voice assistant Siri. The Honda Civic will get this support in 2014 models. This integration is looking into making it easier for users to interact with content. The “Car Display” could mean that you can now also mirror your iPhone display to your car. Sources have confirmed to 9to5mac that Apple is working on an update for iMaps that will improve the way we interact and use maps while in the car. It will also improve the way we manage Music and videos in the car.
