Apple has just updated its official CarPlay website showing several more vehicle manufacturing partners plan to support the company's iOS-based car technology.

The newly announced partners include Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Mazda, Jeep, Abarth, Alfa Romeo and Ram. The list also adds Audi, which the car maker itself confirmed a few days ago. All of the new partners plan to integrate support for CarPlay in at least some of their models, but specifics have not yet been revealed.

CarPlay will launch sometime later this fall in cars made by Hyundai, Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo, and Honda. Audi has already revealed plans to add CarPlay in some of its cars planned for release in 2015. In addition, Pioneer and Alpine are supposed to offer a way for anyone to add CarPlay to their current vehicle, but again specifics have not yet been announced.

What do you think about all of these new car manufacturers jumping onto the CarPlay bandwagon?

Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep, Abarth, Alfa Romeo and Ram are all part of the same company as Ferrari (Fiat Chysler Automobiles) so that makes sense. Mazda is a new one though.

Chrysler is partnered with Android Auto too, so what's gonna happen then?

Sadly I will never consider any new vehicle with an Apple based system in any form. To lock oneself into a flawed propriety system which relies solely on the whims of the developer is a recipe for disaster. This is not a smart move at all.

Well, Android and Apple are just services, the system will still be run by QNX.
