Apple is trying to get drivers off their phones (because they were sued)

People have tried suing Apple, but I am not actually claiming this is their motivation.
People have probably tried suing car manufacturers for this, too. The article says it uses bluetooth, wifi, and a ouija board to decide if the user is driving and then lock the phone, but only if you have carplay enabled, and do not tell it you are not driving, because people who use their phone while driving would never lie!

People should be allowed to bring a lawsuit against anyone they want if they feel they were unjustly harmed. The losing party should then be required to pay attorney fees.

Or, conversely, they are trying to keep their existing user base alive?

Sure, and the suit should then be thrown out of court, because Apple (or other equipment manufacturers) shouldn't be held responsible for the actions of a few - well, ok, a lot - of stupid people.
