Apple released the third new major update to the iOS 10 operating system, the iOS 10.3. Together with other features, it added a small but useful tweak for drivers to CarPlay. This new change in the car's dashboard system makes safer and quicker for drivers to use the CarPlay system.
Before the iOS 10.3 update, drivers had to tap twice to get to individual apps in the system, one tap to go home and another tap on the designated app. With the iOS update, Apple makes the process simpler. In the left-aligned dock on the CarPlay screen, users will now see three recently used apps, Music, Messages or Map, depending on which apps they frequently use. In just one simple tap, they can now instantly jump onto a different program giving more focus on the road.

It is a mobile-like screen system attached to the car dashboard with different apps and program commonly used in cars, such as music apps, messaging apps, and maps.
