On June 11 during Apple's World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) it was revealed that the voice-controlled service Siri found on Apple's iPhone 4S could be adopted by several automakers.
The WWDC presentation on Monday outlined that automakers including BMW, Audi, Chrysler, Honda, General Motors, Jaguar, Land Rover and Toyota plan to integrate Siri into their vehicles in what they've termed the 'Eyes Free' system, though very few details were provided.
However Wired.com notes that a single slide of a BMW dashboard with an iPhone mounted on it was shown at the conference and stated that "it is assumed that existing voice buttons - normally found on the steering wheel - would be able to call up the iPhones virtual assistant."
Siri is already making an impact on the automotive sector with Mercedes planning to intergrate it into its new A-Class due to be released in Europe later this year.
Apple's WWDC runs June 11-15 in San Francisco.
