Lowy explains his philosophy: “Don’t think that iPhone photography is separate from photography, it’s all the same thing”.

CarPlay is “True Plug and Play”

Reviewing CarPlay for, Rod Chester writes: “I sat in [a] car fitted with a Pioneer screen, I plugged my iPhone into the port in the glove box and that was it. I didn’t have to hit a button to pair my phone with the car. This is true plug and play. The beauty of the system is that the screen is a display but the apps come from your phone. I drive a 10-year-old car and I’m happy enough with that. Typically, we upgrade our phones every two years, and update the software on the phone more frequently than that. With CarPlay, when you update your phone, you get a new car system. It’s not a system that’s part of the car but its more versatile because of that”.
