At the 2012 WWDC event, Apple revealed that SIRI features will come to BMW vehicles. The updated SIRI will debut in the new iOS which will hit the market this Fall but the integration with several automakers will span over the next 12 months.
Dubbed "Eyes Free", the integration between SIRI and BMW will include a handsfree hardware button on the steering wheel that will activate the SIRi assistant.
Apple also announced nine automakers are already on board to help launch Eyes Free over the next twelve months, including: BMW, GM, Mercedes-Benz, Land Rover, Jaguar, Audi, Toyota, Honda, and. Ford, one of the largest automakers was not on the list since it currently uses the Microsfot Sync technology.
To showcase the integration, Apple presented an image of a new BMW 5 Series and the current voice-activation button.
SIRI's new integration with Yelp, OpenTable and other APIs will most likely be available within the car operations as well. Other features could include texting, emailing, tweeting and updating your Faceobok status.
What about drivers using Androids, Blackberrys, or Microsoft phones? No word yet from automakers, but the chances of a dual purpose Eyes Free integration are slim to none.
