Apple appears to be making some big moves regarding the Apple Car. Does that mean we're getting closer to an actual launch? Sort of. But we're probably still years away from the project becoming a reality. And now it turns out the project has a new lead.
The Apple Car effort has seen a lot of ups and downs over the years. Especially for a project that's not, technically, an official product. But that hasn't stopped the rumor mill from showing us both the positives and the negatives Apple has faced. And today is no different.
Work on the Apple Car, under Project Titan, continues. But today's news isn't so much on the positive side of things. At least, not for Apple.
There was a time, not so long ago, where the rumor mill was dedicated to doling out information regarding Project Titan. Not all of it was good news. However, the general consensus at the time was Apple hadn't given up on its Apple Car. And here we are with yet another sign that's the case.
With Apple Car production reportedly starting in 2024, company executives are understood to be touring suppliers across Japan and Korea to secure components amid global shortages.
Kevin Lynch is Vice President of Technology at Apple, a major role that has been mostly tied to the Apple Watch. Over the course of many years, Lynch has spearheaded many of the health-related elements of the Apple Watch, and, even demonstrated them on stage at WWDC. But now his attention will reportedly be turned to another Apple-branded product.
The rumor mill won't give up on the Apple Car dream. It hasn't necessarily been on again, off again, but it has evolved over the years. But, for now, it appears things are back on track and Apple's working towards actually launching an electric automobile in several years.
The rumor mill refuses to give up on the idea that Apple is building an electric car. "Project Titan" has been humming along for quite some, and it appears Apple is not ready to give up on those same aspirations, either. Indeed, the company has recently landed a pretty big hire to help make it a reality one day.
Apple has reportedly lost several top managers that used to be attached to the self-driving vehicle team for its electric Apple Car as the bumpy road to Project Titan continues.
Apple has a lot of different projects in the work at any given time, which the company tries very hard to keep secret until it deems it's the right time to share. One such project is supposedly "Project Titan", with the teams reportedly working on Apple's first automobile.
Apple supplier LG Electronics and Canadian manufacturing powerhouse Magna International are apparently “very near” to signing a manufacturing deal that would help bring the long-rumored Apple Car to production, according to a new report.
Apple has a lot of different devices available for people to buy. They've expanded beyond just offering computers, and things get even more diverse when we get into all of the different variants of certain products. But the company that built the iPhone isn't slowing down, and the future is certainly... interesting.
