Ford Motor Company announced software update for more than 5 million SYNC-equipped vehicles dating back to the 2011 model year.
The company said the new updates will add more convenience for Apple iPhone users with Siri Eyes-Free capability.
“SYNC, Ford’s entertainment and communications system, was designed to be flexible and updatable, just like other mobile technologies, so our customers are able to get the most out of their smartphones while behind the wheel,” said Sherif Marakby, director, Ford Electronics and Electrical Systems Engineering.
Siri Eyes-Free is a voice-activated feature that adds convenience to drivers.
Drivers can use their voice to ask Siri for requests such as making phone calls to contacts in their address book, setting a reminder or alarm or asking about the weather.
Ford underlined that the new software update is available for vehicles equipped with the second generation of SYNC, known as MyFord Touch in North America, for the model ranging years 2011 to 2016.
