Now, the clever folks at Case By Case Studios have turned that time-honored way of surviving a long drive into an app.

According to those familiar with the plans, Apple is designing updated versions of center consoles that allow iOS devices (like the iPhone or iPad) to be plugged directly into the vehicle.
