The New Truck Generation: Scania is Introducing Apple CarPlay

Scania is introducing Apple CarPlay to the new truck generation’s infotainment system, allowing for smart, safe and smooth access to all the functionality of iPhones by mirroring them seamlessly. Scania is among the first in the industry to offer Apple CarPlay in heavy trucks. 

“Scania’s infotainment system will work with Apple CarPlay, the smarter, safer way to use your iPhone while on the move,” says Björn Fahlström, Vice President, Product Management, Scania Trucks. “Apple CarPlay support is being introduced in June 2017, and earlier devices can be updated, provided that they have voice recognition. By intro­ducing this functionality, we will offer even more driver comfort and increased safety. For truck drivers, who spend a lot of time behind the wheel, everything that makes life on the road easier, simpler and safer is very much appreciated.”

Mobile Merchants with iPhone can accept Apple Pay with new Bold B550 reader by CardFlight

The device, manufactured by Miura and marketed as the Bold B5 50 reader by CardFlight, will allow merchants to accept EMV chip cards, contactless NFC payments, Apple Pay and Android Pay, as well as magnetic stripe payments from smartphones and tablets. The Bold B550 will be integrated into CardFlight’s mobile POS platform and payment gateway, which supports most major U.S. processors.

Resellers of SwipeSimple will be able to offer their merchants the Bold B550 device as a new option in addition to CardFlight’s existing card reader choices. The Bold B550 is particularly valuable for merchants that want to accept both NFC and EMV payments or who prefer to connect to a card reader via Bluetooth rather than the audio jack connectivity used in CardFlight’s other readers. SwipeSimple is CardFlight’s product that enables merchant service providers, banks, independent sales organizations and other financial institutions to offer a great EMV-enabled mobile point-of-sale solution to their merchants.
