Honda to introduce iOS integration with 2014 range, unveiling in December

Honda will be unveiling its iOS in the Car mirroring in December, with the functionality to be included in its 2014 range.

The new iOS integration features will be unveiled in the first week of December, but the 2014 Honda Civic will be the first with the functionality in-built.

Apple and Honda have been working together since 2011 when they initially announce Siri Eyes Free, but it seems new iOS in the Car features will be announced in the next fortnight.

A source close to Honda said the iOS features are “more than just simple mirroring” and instead you’ll be able to control your iOS device using a 7-inch multitouch display built into the car’s dashboard.

Siri Eyes Free allows you to hit a button on the steering wheel to control your iPhone using Siri’s voice controls. You might find this useful for changing the music track or making calls, but Honda’s new iOS in the Car features will apparently go far beyond this.

Honda confirmed mirroring technology would feature in the 2014 Civic when it goes on sale in December via its Twitter account:

“Mirroring technology is available starting with the all-new 2014 Civic – we don’t believe that will be available in the 13 Accords.”

The Japanese motor vehicle company also added that the Siri Eyes Free updates would be available in early December.

“We’re anticipating Siri Eyes Free updates before the beginning of December.”

Apple is also working with Audi, BMW, Chrysler, General Motors, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz and Toyota to bring Siri Eyes Free to more vehicles.

The Honda iOS in the Car announcements are tipped for a December 4 event.
