After announcing its iOS in the Car initiative at last year’s WWDC, Apple is expected to launch the program next week with partners Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo, according to a Financial Times report.
When it arrives, iOS in the Car will integrate Apple’s mobile OS with the in-dash displays and controls of supported vehicles, opening up access to Siri, iMessage, iTunes and Maps.
In addition to the aforementioned auto makers, Apple has also signed partnerships with companies like Chevrolet, Honda, Jaguar and Nissan.
