Is Apple CarPlay confirmed for '15 Ford models?

I know a new sync version has been announced, and Ford is listed as a "future" user of CarPlay, but I haven't seen anything official regarding this function in upcoming models like the '15 Focus.

As far as I know Ford has decided on the Blackberry QNX system. I'm pretty sure none of these new infotainment systems are planned for the '15 Focus though.

Apple CarPlay isn't a stand-alone infotainment system. It's essentially an iPhone app that, when connected to a compatible car, takes over the touchscreen and allows you to run a limited set of functions directly from your iPhone (maps, phone, music, etc). It's not much different from what you can do now with an iPhone connected to sync, but it's a bit more streamlined.

As far as I know, Ford is not on the list of automakers for the 2015 release of CarPlay.

from the apple website:https://www.apple.com/ios/carplay/

Ford is listed among the makers that will use it in the future. Beyond that, I couldn't find anything more specific. Nothing that I could find on Ford's end.

Yes, in 2024.
At that time, the iPhone 19 is will be the latest model.

Ford is still using Microsoft based software, the underlying operating system has not changed for 2015 which was already revealed.
