Apple, the American tech and design pioneer revolutionized smartphones back in 2007. And today, news is that the Silicon valley-based company’s efforts to create the first AppleCar, which were thought to be an urban legend for a while, are likely to become tech reality.
Started in 2014, the project named “Titan”, which almost got shelved due to technical issues, is now back on everyone’s minds as Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, is teasing a massive and secretive launch, and Nobel Prize winner and ion battery pioneer, Akira Yoshino mentioned the project in a recent interview with Reuters: “The one to look out for is Apple. What will they do? I think they may announce something soon,” Yoshino said. “And what kind of car would they announce? What kind of battery? They probably want to get in around 2025. If they do that, I think they have to announce something by the end of this year. That’s just my own personal hypothesis.”
What we know so far is that according to MacRumors, a website devoted to all things Apple, the car would be intuitive and self-driving and several engineers including automotive and AI specialists are secretly working on the task.
Trying to take the lead and catch up with Tesla’s futuristic vehicles, the future of driving could indeed rely within the hands of the Californian trendsetter.
Hoping that the newest addition to their already wide portfolio won’t run out of battery as quickly as their phones, we can’t wait to see what Apple have in store for us. Watch this space.
