Honda was one of Apple’s key partners who agreed to use the CarPlay system in their cars. It is a safer and smarter way to use your iPhone in a Honda vehicle. The system brings all the necessary information, such as apps, music controls, and device battery life, from your smartphone to the screen in the car, taking the interaction between your iPhone and Honda to a new level.
