It’s an optional feature, but if you’re in the market for a new Audi, they may have a pleasant iPhone-powered surprise in store for you. The German automaker has announced a new Music Interface that effectively connects your newly acquired Apple iPhone to the large on-screen display, granting you access to both phone and music functions.
Set to be available on the A5, A6, A8, and Q7, the optional package integrates the iPhone with Audi’s MMI interface. Based on the pictures provided, you can stay wireless if you want to only do the voice call thing, but if you’d like to flip through your music collection, there is some sort of cable involved. Your tunes can be accessed via artist, track title, playlists, and genre.
We’ve seen lots of iPod integration in recent years; I guess this is just the next logical step.
