Web Exclusive: Apple releases iOS7 update, introduces CarPlay

Posted: Updated:

(CBS/CNN) - Apple releases its latest operating system update, for mobile devices.  The update is supposed to provide a simpler, cleaner look to the software.  The biggest change--support for CarPlay, the new feature that integrates your iPhone with a car's in-dash display panel.  Right now, no cars currently on the market work with CarPlay.  It's expected to be available in certain models later this year.

McDonalds says sales fell 1.4% in February.  The fast food chain admits there's more competition in the industry and customers like variety.  So McDonald's is introducing new prep tables that can hold more toppings and sauces.  And its testing out a concept where customers can build their own burger -- choosing bread, cheese and other toppings.  

Americans took 10.7 billion trips using public transportation last year.  That's the highest it's been in 57 years, according to the American Public Transportation association.  This is also the eighth straight year more than 10 billion trips were taken.  Several cities had all-time high ridership numbers -- including Los Angeles, New York and New Orleans.  

The share of Americans without health insurance is dropping to the lowest levels since President Barack Obama took office.  That's according to the Gallup-Healthways well-being index.  It found that 15.9% of adults are un-insured, thus far in 2014.  That's down from 17.1% for the last three months of 2013.  The end of open enrollment season for Obamacare is March 31st.
