High tech virtual cockpit in new Audi TT

I will never get this: the problem with software in cars is that cars are built to last 10, 15 years at least. Software is built to last until the next deployment, like: in a minute. Wouldn't it be smarter to offer a display that can mirror (airplay or chromecast style) your mobile phone and then offer everything else as apps, like in this case a highly customizable 'Audi TT cockpit app', and you could then update all that stuff over the years?
