Apple manages to always stay in the news for some reason or the other. Latest rumor says Apple is working on its own iCar. A mysterious black camera-mounted van has been spotted moving around the streets of San Francisco which apparently belongs to Apple. This has sparked rumors that the Cupertino giant may be developing a self driving car.
It is a known fact that Steve Jobs wanted to build his own iCar and now the company may be working to fulfill “Steve’s dream”. There have been fresh rumors that Apple has been poaching employees from Tesla Motors, the maker of electric cars.
A newly employed person at Apple told Business Insider that “Tesla employees were jumping ship to work at Apple”. He said, “Apple’s latest project is too exciting to pass up. I think it will change the landscape and give Tesla a run for its money.“
Apple has hired around 50 employees who were previously working with Tesla and many of them are engineers and designers. These people have good experience in building cars leading to speculation that the Cupertino company might indeed be building a car.
Of course, it is also likely that Apple is working on improving its CarPlay infotainment system. CarPlay allows you to control the car’s entertainment system through your iPhone, make calls or listen to voice mails while driving. It also has Apple Maps and other options so that navigation of the car becomes easy.
Well, some may think what does Apple know about building a car, but they forget that Apple is one of the leading companies in the world for software and it can easily use its expertise to build an electric car. What do you think?
