Since the launch of Apple Carplay and Android Auto almost 10 years ago, it made a huge impact on the vehicle infotainment experience. It was offered on higher trims when it first came out but now comes standard on most newer vehicle models if not all.  Just a year after it was launched, Carplay offered wireless connectivity on specific models only.
