With the smartphone battle spilling into the driver's seat, Apple has signed up nine more manufacturers for CarPlay.
Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Audi, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep, Mazda and Ram have all been added, according to Apple's website.
CarPlay, like Google's just-introduced Android Auto, is designed to allow someone that already owns a smartphone to take that experience into the car with a safer, car-friendly experience that taps voice recognition and a vehicle's existing in-car navigation display.
A number of those manufactures newly committing to CarPlay are also supporting Android Auto, including Chrysler, Audi and Alfa Romeo.
Apple has said to expect CarPlay to start showing up in models later this year.
CarPlay taps Siri to allow drivers to make calls, listen to voice mail and hear incoming alerts and messages. Integration with maps allows turn-by-turn directions to show up on the vehicle's infotainment system, while on the audio side, CarPlay supports iTunes radio, podcasts and certain third-party apps including Spotify, Stitcher, iHeartRadio and Beats Music.
