CarPlay, apple, Ferrari, macworld australiaFirst spotted by 9to5mac, Apple’s CarPlay system has finally hit the road – in a Ferrari. The announcement from the Ferrari website, states that the first Ferrari with CarPlay installed, the FF model, has gone to an Italian client just days after the Apple technology commenced. CarPlay is also available for the Ferrari California T.

Other destinations for the inaugural CarPlay-equipped vehicles include Germany, Great Britain, France, Switzerland, Japan and the United States.

The article on the Ferrari website reads:

Apple CarPlay is the smarter, safer and fun way to use iPhone in your car. An incredibly intuitive system, CarPlay allows you to make calls, use maps, listen to music and access messages with a single word or touch of the central display.”

This statement is accompanied by a video, showing the features in action.

Unfortunately we are yet to receive any updates on when the audio system will be available in more common, affordable vehicles, with previous reports pointing to delays that expect to push any further releases into 2015.
