A new Apple patent related to the keyless car entry feature for a possible future Apple car has been published. It mentions the possibility of using a smartphone, smartwatch, or a smart device for user authentication to unlock a vehicle.
It is no secret that Apple is working on an autonomous car of its own. Thanks to a report from Digitimes we now know the status of the project. According to the report, Taiwan based Quanta Computer is supplying Apple with an unknown number of “autonomous driving solutions.”
As the design head at Apple, Jony Ive worked on a number of products at the company. Many of them were released to the public while others were nixed in prototyping stage or are not yet ready for a public release. A report from The Information reveals that Jony Ive worked on the design of the Apple Car and came up with a pretty wild concept.
Word on the street has been going strong for quite some time that Apple is building, or has aspirations to build at least, its own electric and/or self-driving car.
Back in January, it was reported that Apple had let go over 200 employees working on its Project Titan efforts.
Apple’s “Project Titan” has been a pretty consistent rumor for quite some time, with a lot of the focus being on what type of autonomous vehicle the company could be working on.
Apple has its sights set on self-driving cars, but what that actually becomes for public consumption remains to be seen.
Apple has reportedly removed over 200 employees from its ‘Project Titan’ team which is responsible for its autonomous car group.
Rumors about the demise of Apple’s dreams of launching an actual car may have been greatly exaggerated.
Apple has been developing its proprietary chipsets, the A-series, for quite some time for iPhones and iPads, and the rumor mill has long speculated that Apple would be moving to adopt that same idea for its Mac lineup as well.
