The list of vehicles that support Apple CarPlay is long. Now more than 100 pieces, including common models from Audi, Citroen, Mercedes-Benz, Peugeot, Suzuki, Seat, Skoda, VW and Volvo. But effectively this does not help us, since practically nothing has changed since the introduction of Apple CarPlay. MirrorLink (Android) has long outstripped the system, because more is possible with it. The reason CarPlay is stagnating is Apple itself.
It’s not like the developers aren’t making an effort. Apart from Spotify, there is no support for other (globally) used apps. Mainly, among 12 examples, apps from the American app store for Apple CarPlay are mentioned. The reason for the stagnation is Apple itself. Because Cupertino does not react to the developers. There are several proven examples, for example from the podcast player Castro, whereby Apple does not respond to the developers’ inquiries.
