CarPlay, Apple's vehicle in-dash entertainment system, will be supported by nine more auto brands, says the tech company. Audi, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Fiat, Mazda, Ram, Abarth and Alfa Romeo will include CarPlay on future vehicle models. CarPlay allows iPhone users to run apps from their smartphones on their in-dash entertainment centers.

CarPlay is expected to debut on new vehicles later this year.
