apple just announced ios16 and it’s CarPlay capability. It takes over the car completely (imagine AAOS that we have in our recharge but it will be apple iOS and CarPlay). This includes the digital cluster and all other screens.

Volvo is listed as one of the companies developing cars staring late next year. So it seems Volvo is really ditching AAOS

Sounds like a great plan however, we're not likely to see in on existing models; only the new ones after the rollout.

Might this mean XC40 Recharge and Carplay (expected imminently!) will be shortlived unless you keep your iphone on iOS 15?

Wondering if it will run on top of the AAOS, so you could choose what you want.
But anyway, it will make Google speed up the improvements on AAOS overall.
Or if Volvo will drop AAOS, then we will probably see nothing new until CarPlay is available.

Volvo not ditching AAOS anytime soon. They’ve been signing contracts and starting development on multiple AAOS systems. It’s barely been a couple months since Volvo and google announced partnership for infotainment on all Volvos for the next few years.
that’s ok - just let me text and easily get to calls on my calendar using AAOS with my iPhone, read emails, etc.

The CarPlay announced today won’t be out until late 2023, but the Polestar tweet gives me hope that we will eventually see it in the XC40 and C40.
Polestar says CarPlay coming in a month, may not be that new CarPlay, but will make my wife happy.

Since CarPlay runs on the phone, not the car - does that mean you won't even have a dashboard/speedometer/instrument cluster without your iPhone?

I don’t see anything that suggests that this is anything more than a CarPlay over your native system like it currently exists-just with more functionality.
So there will be TWO different dashboard displays? One native to the car, and a different one when your iPhone is present?
