Today, Apple left no stone at WWDC, upgrading everything from major products like iOS to more niche items like CarPlay.

CarPlay saw several critical improvements, including support for multi-screen displays and integrated climate controls.

Multi-Display Support

Apple’s new CarPlay will move beyond the confines of the radio and expand to multiple displays on the dashboard.

Users will be able to view critical information like the speedometer, RPMs, mileage, and more right along with Apple Maps navigation.

Integrated Climate Control

Besides just a pretty display showing the car’s stats, CarPlay will now integrate with the car’s existing systems.

One of the first systems to get the CarPlay treatment is climate control.

With the new CarPlay on board, owners will be able to control the heat and air-conditioning using the CarPlay interface, among other vehicle controls.
