CarPlay comes to iOS7

Last week, we questioned if Apple would make the same mistake twice by keeping Google Maps out of CarPlay.

Today, we get one step closer to finding out that answer, as Apple released iOS7.1 for download.

From Apple’s Update site:

iOS 7.1 is packed with interface refinements, bug fixes, improvements, and new features. Apple CarPlay introduces a better way to use iPhone while driving. And you can now control exactly how long Siri listens and more. Getting the update is easy. Go to Settings. Select General. And tap Software Update.

CarPlay will only be available on select new cars and on the iPhone 5+.
