iPhone displays, Sonos Beta, CarPlay sells cars


Apple is working on the future of iPhone displays at a secret new lab in Taiwan — The company is reportedly taking more control over the technology it uses in its hardware.

Apple Music Beta Comes to Sonos — Sonos users rejoice! Apple Music is now available in beta form on Sonos’s wireless speakers starting December 15th. According to Sonos, this will feature streaming of everything in Apple Music’s For You, New, Radio and My Music sections. If you have a family account setup, six of them can be added to Sonos individually, allowing everyone to access their own selections and playlists.

Dealers say GM’s rapid adoption of Apple CarPlay is helping them sell cars — American automaker General Motors has rolled out support for Apple’s CarPlay iPhone integration faster and across more models than its rivals, resulting in independent dealers reporting the feature draws in customers and helps to close the deal in selling new cars.
