Vehicle owners with CarPlay installed will soon be able to connect their phones to the platform without the need for cables

Apple yesterday pushed out the first beta of iOS 8.3 to developers, revealing its plan to add Wireless CarPlay support. Developers who have access to the beta shared the feature with some publications.

Currently, an iPhone needs to be connected to the car via a Lightning cable, which then brings up Apple's custom dash display. The display can be controlled either using the touch panel or by voice control through Siri.

Whether iPhone owners can wirelessly connect to CarPlay, however, will depend on whether their vehicle manufacturer supports the feature: Volvo for example has previously said it is working on a wireless connection.
