Apple has defended its CarPlay product, after a University of Utah study suggested that Siri was the most distracting of all speech recognition systems when used in the car.

Apple said in a statement to The Wall Street Journal that the study only tested Siri alone, not the company’s in-car product CarPlay, which includes Siri Eyes Free.

“CarPlay and Siri Eyes Free intuitively use your vehicle’s native controls so you don’t need to pick-up and look at your phone while driving. These experiences are tailored so you only have access to iPhone apps that are optimized for the car and make sense for an in-vehicle experience.”

The study compared multiple in-car systems, as well as Apple’s Siri. However, it must be said that the researchers didn’t make it clear that they only used the standard version of Siri included with iPhones and iPads, not Apple’s CarPlay, which is tailored for driving.
