We know that Apple plans on making a name for themselves in the automobile industry by integrating iOS into vehicles’ infotainment units. This integration is known as iOS in the Car and we’re sure some of you guys are wondering how it will look like. Will it look like the iOS we have all come to know and love (or hate)? Or will Apple take on a completely different design language for its in-vehicle operating system? Well thanks to app developer, Steven Troughton-Smith, he has posted a couple of images onto his Twitter account where it basically shows off what appears to be Apple’s upcoming iOS in the Car interface. It is unclear how Troughton-Smith got the images, and when asked about it he declined to comment.
As you can see, the design of iOS in the Car is different from what Apple had initially shown off in its marketing materials (bottom half of the photo is Apple’s original design), but then again this is to be expected as changes are made over time. For the most part it looks like iOS except that the choice of blue fonts on a translucent black background does remind us of Android. Overall it is a pretty interesting design. There’s no telling when iOS in the Car will make an appearance, although Honda has made some efforts with HondaLink, but according to Apple’s website, it is listed as “Coming soon”, so hopefully it won’t be too long until we get to see the final product.
