It has easy features displayed on an easy-to-use interface with the trademark Apple icons that anyone can use even without any assistance.

An Apple CarPlay’s features can be simply accessed by using Siri, Apple’s virtual assistant, by just calling out on it. For those cars which are not equipped with voice-recognition technology, they can get the best of the software with the help of the touchscreen embedded in the dashboard, and if that is not available either, then they can get navigate the software using the buttons and knobs that can be found on the steering wheel and the centre console.
