This also includes the new Touch ID fingerprint recognition, which features a completely new operating system. This also enables the user to regulate Siri’s listening time. Now, the Siri will listen to you as long as you hold the Home button and it will stop listening when you release it.

The update features new options in case of receiving calls. CarPlay has also made debut in Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo vehicles at the show, demonstrating the software system that allows drivers to control their iPhones via touch and voice.

CarPlay enables drivers to access to contacts stored on the iPhone, make calls, return missed calls or listen to voicemails without taking their hands off from the steering wheel.

Drivers can also use maps, listen to music and access messages "with just a word or a touch", Apple said. Drivers will also be able to read messages and dictate responses via Apple's voice-activated Siri software.
