The vehicle is supposed to be completely self-driving, and it is stated that it will operate similarly to an iPhone. Using Apple’s AI verbal assistant Siri, the vehicle would also be able to park itself at a predetermined location.
According to a number of patents secured by the technology sector, Apple may hide the steering wheel and only disclose it in the event of an emergency.
Apple has just hired the seasoned Ford executive Desi Ujkashevic to oversee the automobile’s development. Apple reportedly collaborated with a South Korean outsourced semiconductor assembly and test (OSAT) company to create the autopilot technology for the automobile.
Using the in-car virtual reality entertainment system, passengers will be able to become completely immersed in their location-based, in-headset experiences. The VR content will be based on the passenger’s journey and will be synced with the movement and acceleration of the Apple Car.
The absence of windows on the Apple Car is meant to reduce motion sickness, and passengers will be able to have a window-like experience via their VR headsets, which will connect to cameras placed on the car’s outside.
Apple has not officially confirmed that the vehicle would be launched in 2025, but this is anticipated.
