An upcoming software update will add an Apple Podcasts app to the App Launcher on select Tesla vehicles, including the new Cybertruck.
Aside from Tesla's Apple Music support, the update brings thousands of Steam games to play in your car and a few other noteworthy improvements.
Tesla appear to have implemented Apple Music support in the infotainment unit of its vehicles. The feature will probably launch commercially via a future software update.
Sometimes, maybe even inevitably, everything feels eventual. At one point in time, Apple's 30% fee for its App Store felt like a standard thing, like that's just how it's supposed to be. But, things change, and now there's definitely a much louder outcry regarding the fee. And, more than that, Apple's need to change it.
Some years are better than others when it comes to design. And while there are some great devices in the past, it's always nice to think about the future. Unless you're Tesla's design chief, and you're thinking about Apple, apparently.
Corporate executives make a lot of money. And so it's no surprise that there are lists made to see where they stack up against one another. That makes it easy to see how one executive or another either climbs or falls on those particular lists.
By all accounts, Tim Cook appears to be pretty happy being the Chief Executive Officer of Apple. So it wouldn't be too surprising to hear that he wouldn't be keen on the idea of giving up the position to anyone else. And according to one story, Cook made sure Elon Musk of all people knew that wasn't a possibility.
Teased over the weekend, Apple's CEO Tim Cook has just had a brand new interview published early this morning. In it, Cook talks about a range of topics, including Tesla and App Store security.
It's certainly starting to feel like the Apple Car is a real thing the company isn't just toying around with, but rather a project that will become the real deal before too long. Today we have yet another rumor pointing to its seemingly inevitable arrival.
Right now, Spotify is the primary way to listen to music when using streaming services in a Tesla, with no alternative options officially supported in the infotainment system. However, a recent software update appears to indicate the company behind the popular electric automobile lineup is working on adding support for other streaming services, including Apple's.
It's hard to argue with the power of an Apple rumor. Even if nothing ever comes of it --remember the Apple TV set?-- the market usually starts to expect its arrival anyway. And, of course, CEOs of other companies that might have to start competing with Apple directly are asked whether or not they're ready for the competition.
Before 2020 closes out, we get to hear some pretty surprising information from none other than Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla. According to the chief executive, he reached out to another executive at another company in an effort to see about a potential acquisition of the electric automobile company. Turns out? Tim Cook of Apple didn't even take the meeting.
