Rumor: BMW Dropping iDrive For Apple Compatibility?

Autospies has a juicy rumor on BMW, iDrive, the iPod and an apparent dropping of one standard in favor of another. Their tipster tells them that BMW will drop the iDrive system—which has gotten not-so-fabulous reviews—in favor of an interface that they've collaborated with Apple on. It's unclear exactly what type of UI this would be, or whether it would allow the iPhone/iPod to dock into the car much like the recent Land Rover LRX Concept. [Auto Spies]
