One of the perhaps slightly less discussed features at the WWDC keynote was ‘Siri Eyes Free’, a button that will be installed into cars of cooperating car manufacturers to allow easy Siri use without having to hold the handset itself.
It was unclear at the time which car companies and cars would be the first to benefit, however it now seems that the first to get it will be the Chevrolet Sonic and Spark, GM Authority reports (via 9to5Mac).
Other companies who have apparently been working with Apple include Toyota, BMW and Mercedes, with Land Rover and Audi also collaborating.
Buyers of the new Spark or Sonic cars will be able to send a text, find restaurants or check sports scores via Siri in their at the touch of the button on the steering wheel, and will be therefore able to keep their eyes on the road at all time. It’s pretty cool, and if you have an iPhone 4S and are looking for a car, this might just be a factor in your decision.
