The report claims Apple is currently testing the feature with default wallpapers available in iOS 13, adding that the wallpapers would automatically switch between light and dark versions on the CarPlay interface depending on the time of day.

The report also claims that Apple Maps will provide more info for certain businesses in iOS 14, such as specific Genius Bar services that an Apple Store offers, movie theatres with IMAX showtimes, and places with discounts for children.

Boring, my screen rarely is on the home screen. Better feature is to allow the dashboard to show Waze navigation and music app of my choice to be up together. It's a great concept in IOS13, but rather limited with Apple.

Wallpapers? Really? Why enable more distraction on a screen you really shouldn't be looking at for a millisecond longer than necessary anyway?

Carplay features I would want, in order:
- option to use the phone's brightness sensor to switch it into night/day mode (right now it's using the dashboard setting)
- simple multitasking: left-right split view and quarter view, each with reduced functions. And when an app is showing there, don't smother the screen with its notifications.
- when I reply to a message via dictation, give me the option to reply via voice memo or converted to text. In the latter case, read it back to me before sending. Maybe make it smart... if I dictate punctuation marks and emojis, just convert it to text.
- have a "declutter" option, you know, like every airplane cockpit display. Where it just shows you less and less distracting visuals.

As of right now, I have to adjust my car's cockpit brightness in order to switch Carplay into night mode. It's a mid-spec 2015 Suzuki and it has an old-timey button beneach the tachometer to reset the trip computer and when you twist it without pressing, it adjustst the brigtness. It's a very long plastic thing and I'm twisting it twice a day (full brightness on the way to work, darker on the way back so the carplay-screen won't blind me). I expect that thing to break before anything else and it will be a pain to replace...
