Volkswagen and Apple are working to connect drivers behind the wheel.

This weekend Volkswagen will debut the 2014 iBeetle.

While many cars have iPhone connectors, the new Beetle incorporates some iPhone features into the infotainment system.

There will be an iPhone dock, a custom Volkswagen Beetle app, and smartphone functions that are synced with the car's onboard electronics.

It will be unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show this weekend.
