Sync 3 uses a variant of BlackBerry's QNX operating system, after the first two versions ran on a variant of Windows.
While Microsoft has often boasted of its in-car system and its partnership with Ford, but QNX offers more modern features. A few examples are capacitive touchscreen support, pinch and zoom gestures, Wi-Fi OTA updates, and support for Siri.
A few of the launch apps that are supported are Spotify, iHeartRadio and NPR One.
Ford said that "hardware and software decisions were based on identifying the technology that would best meet the expectations for performance by our customers."
