Apple quietly confirmed in an update to its CarPlay webpage that Porsche is the latest brand to commit to providing CarPlay in its line of future automobiles.

It’s not clear when Porsche will rollout the standard or how it will replace the company’s own Porsche Communication Management that offers GPS navigation, voice control and digital audio, along with speed limit indicators as you’re whipping your super-fast Porsche down the highway. However, it’s nice to see that yet another manufacturer is joining the ranks of CarPlay support.

AppleInsider reports the update to Apple’s website listing the luxury carmaker came sometime in mid-March. Any other announcement can’t be found.

Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, said at March’s “Spring Forward” event that “every major” carmaker is now on board with CarPlay, and that the infotainment system will be incorporated into 40 new car models in 2015.

Other companies supporting CarPlay include Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, Hyundai, Mazda, Subaru, Mercedes-Benz, Ford, Honda, and others. CarPlay is also available in aftermarket automobile sound systems available from Alpine and Pioneer.

    In other news, Samsung camera, for the fifth time in row (this time with the S6 Edged), crushes the iPhone’s camera in real-world comparison test (http://bit. ly/1Es9ZU5).

    Also, “crappy/bloatware-loaded” touchwiz running on the Note 4 turns out to be barely faster than “simple/smooth” iOS running on the 6+ (http://bit. ly/1IvOQHV). And the supposedly “cleaner” S6 barely falls behind the iPhone 6 in speed (http://bit. ly/1IvYWsh).

    Also, Samsung failed to predict the “gimmicky” S6 Edge’s success (http://bit. ly/1ITBiJJ)…they might also be “copying” Apple’s profits after all.

    Also, glassy S6 Edge turns out to be way more durable than even the tin-can iPhone 6 (http://bit. ly/1IvXwy8)…talk about cheapass quality.

    Old news, Apple adds yet another organization to it’s media-control blacklist (http://bit. ly/1H6D0XD)…talk about genius scumbag marketing…perhaps iDB is skipping these news in fear of being blacklisted by the rotten side of Apple.

    Finally, don’t ever argue about SmartPhones when drunk, you might end up in the hospital (http://bit. ly/1IvUERK).

      Do you have to prove something to someone? Because this is very irrelevant.

      • AppleRelatedNewsiDBSkips

        Oh, poor iSheep got butthurt and is now calling Apple related news irrelevant on an Apple related news site…not surprised.
        Not proving anything to daft iSheeps, just better informing other open-minded Apple users about all Apple related news, ’cause that’s what they come here to iDB for, but iDB skips some of those news for whatever fanboy reason…
