Audi, Bmw, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota, GM confirm that Siri will make it into their cars

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 12, 2012

As you may know already, last night was magic for Apple fans as the company announced a new MacBook Pro with Retina Display, a new Airport Express, the iOS6, the Mountain Lion but also a new Siri button to your car. That’s right, a steering wheel-mounted button capable to activate Siri on the iPhone or iPad (Siri is also coming to iPad now!).

Called Eyes Free, this will help you to talk with Siri while driving if the iPhone is paired via Bluetooth. And the good news is that Apple already talked with Audi, Bmw, Mercedes-Benz, Chrysler, Honda, Toyota, Jaguar and Land Rover and all these manufacturers signed up to start offering Eyes Free within the next three months.

So, using Eyes Free, you will be able to make calls, dictate text messages or look up directions by plugging your iPhone into a USB cable in the car. "A number of auto manufacturers have committed to delivering Eyes Free Siri integration in the next 12 months," said Scott Forstall, Apple's senior vice president of iOS software.

This is Apple’s first move in the auto industry and we believe that Steve Jobs is now happier as he wanted this. GM is an early adopter as its MyLink infotainment system offered on the 2013 Chevrolet Spark and Sonic will be compatible with Siri.
