Default CarPlay on iOS 11


Here is a screenshot of iOS 11 on CarPlay, the only new thing that I have noticed is that messages and phone have red notification bubbles in the shortcut bar. Iíll post more as I discover it and new betas get released.

I feel like we won't see much. After the keynote this morning I asked a few of the Apple handlers about CarPlay when I was in the demo area. They can't share anything that wasn't already publicly announced, but it seems like this is likely it for the time being. Sad.

Do the maps show the speed limit and lane assistance while in CarPlay mode in iOS 11?

I agree, pretty disappointing. I was hoping for a revamp of the home screen to something akin to Android Auto.

The notification badge on the shortcut menu is nice, but the fact that there are no other changes is disappointing. I was hoping for advances in Apple Maps that would help close the gap with integrated GPS systems including better graphics, speed limits, altitude...

I was really hoping they were going to release the wireless CarPlay.

They promised two most wanted features - lane assist and speed limit in maps! Everything else is not important as long as it simple and functional IMHO

Trying to imagine any application where altitude is useful for a vehicle.

Mostly curiosity, although it is potentially useful when driving in the mountains in the winter. My wife's Honda has it on the Garmin GPS and I frequently have the altitude view enabled when on road trips over the mountains.

I haven't gotten it to show up in the app yet but haven't tried it in the car yet. It did suggest a route to Whole Foods while I was driving yesterday in maps which ive never had it do before.

Wireless CarPlay exists but Audi doesn't have it built in.
