GM is phasing out Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in EVs
In a move that is sure to send shockwaves throughout the tech industry, General Motors has announced that it will be phasing out support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in its electric vehicles starting in 2024.
This is a bold move by GM, and one that is sure to cause some headaches for both Apple and Android. For years, CarPlay and Android Auto have been seen as indispensable features in any modern car, and GM was one of the first major automakers to offer support for both platforms.
However, GM is apparently planning to develop its own in-vehicle infotainment system that will be powered by the company’s own software and data. This move will no doubt be seen as a direct challenge to both Apple and Android, and it will be interesting to see how both companies respond.
In the meantime, GM owners will still be able to use CarPlay and Android Auto in their vehicles, but it appears that the writing is on the wall for these platforms. It will be interesting to see how this story develops in the coming years.
