Confirmed: iOS in the Car can work using Wi-Fi
Apple's 2014 initiative known as <a href=" er/#J2RBCbHLpeZtXRMh.99" rel='nofollow'>"iOS in the Car,"</a> a method of connecting iOS devices so that they "take over" built-in navigation and information screens in vehicles to allow drivers to take and make phone calls, use Maps, work with Messages on their center console screen (or "Eyes Free" with some services employing Siri) has been discovered to gain AirPlay support in the betas of iOS 7. The discovery by hacker <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Hamza Sood</a> means that some vehicles will be able to connect to devices wirelessly using Wi-Fi or possibly Bluetooth.<br />
<br />
While nearly every new car of the last few years supports some level of audio and video interaction with iOS devices, "iOS in the Car" brings the iOS screens to some vehicles, including forthcoming models from Nissa, Honda, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo, Ferrari, Kia, Lexus, Jaguar and Chevrolet among others. A setting inside the iOS 7 beta called Accessory Developer options has toggles for either iOS in the Car over USB (using a USB adapter for 30-pin or Lightning-equipped models) or iOS in the Car over Wi-Fi.<br />
<br />
Reports indicate that a future update of the as-yet-unreleased iOS 7 will more formally bundle support for iOS in the Car, possibly timed to coincide with the release of 2014 model cars that are compatible with it.<br />
