Do you think the new CarPlay features might make it to the MK8?

If VW is smart they will adopt this technology. As Apple has said in the video 79% of prospective car buyers want Carplay support and after iOS16 the number will definitely grow even bigger. I might be a bit overhyped but what Apple has shown was so good that I might consider selling my Golf 8 if VW chooses not to support it !

Agreed, they'd be foolish not to adopt this!

I hope VW adopt it too. Looks great. If not, like others, may have to go elsewhere for my next car. CarPlay in its current form was a game changer for me and either way, I couldn’t go back to a car that doesn’t support it.

I do not believe any manufacturer will adopt this for existing models. The adoption will most likely require extensive modifications to software and hardware architecture.

It will be interesting to see whether any manufacture adopts this vision at all. It looked more like a CarOS than a CarPlay scenario. Perhaps we will se a partial adoption first, for example showing climate controls on the CarPlay interface and letting Siri control them.

Also, VW has not even adopted the current capabilities of CarPlay. Since iOS 13, it has been possible to show the navigation map in the instrument cluster display. It is something VW could easily do, but they have not - probably to protect their own navigation map, for which this feature is the best selling point.
