How Apple’s CarPlay Works in a Ferrari

If I had $300,000 to spend on a car, I wouldn’t look twice at Ferrari’s station wagon (sorry, Ferrari’s “family car”).  But since this one is equipped with Apple’s new CarPlay system, let’s have a gander.

Attention radio people:  did you notice where she demonstrated the system’s AM/FM radio? Oh, wait…

    To be fair, she was demoing CarPlay, not the car’s radio, which is a separate button and function on the entertainment system. I wouldn’t want AM/FM radio on CarPlay for the same reason I don’t use it on my phone: it eats into my data limit.
