You might have heard the big news that has been going around lately, Apple is working on a car. So, why would an Apple car be a perfect idea? Let’s take a look at all the things that would make this car special:
Apple is known to perfect all their products and categories – nowadays, Apple will not likely create new product categories. Rather, they enter their already existent categories and deliver the best options possible. For example, they did that with the iPod, iPhone, and the iPad. Based on their previous patterns, they could enter the smart car area with a game-changing offer.
The car will probably have its perfect ecosystem – what could be better than a self-driving, Internet-connected vehicle? And that is just two things of many others that could happen inside your car. It will most likely be successful since they will have the chance to integrate their other products and services into their innovation. Imagine if your car would unlock and start by using your Apple watch? That would be quite amazing and would make your car even more safe from theft. As you already know, a lot of companies, like Google and Microsoft already offer diverse ecosystems and devices, but none of them incorporates their platforms and products better than Apple.
The hardware will be crucial for them – while the software that will be operating your car and keeping you safe is important, the hardware of the car will be important as well. Amongst all the tech companies that are working on projects related to cars, perhaps, only Apple has unquestionable expertise in hardware designs and development.
Unmatched integration – as we all know, Apple products are high in quality and loved by many because of their inseparable integration between the hardware and software of their company. When you are the maker of both the hardware and software, users will never worry about the problems that might occur between the hardware and software of your vehicle. With Apple, you can rest assured that this will not happen.
Here are some things to know about the Apple car:
1. It will drive itself – whether or not Apple decides to launch this car, it is known that Project Titan is working on autonomous vehicle technology. Whatever form this car takes, this project is more of a self-driving car project.
2. It might incorporate virtual reality – it might seem like a crazy idea to put two categories, like VR a driving together, but, a reliable self-driving car technology could be able to change that. If your car is able to drive you safely to the destination you need to get to without your input, you will be able to do whatever you want to.
3. The project might be larger than initially expected – last year, interesting info has been revealed related to the Project Titan. Those details indicate that Apple has about 5.000 employees working on the car project, which is 4.000 more than two years earlier. One detail that is also interesting, is that it has been revealed that Apple has a prototype of the car technology.
You might be wondering when this car will be released, and until Tim Cook (or someone else), stands on the stage and announces it, we will not be entirely sure when it will be unveiled.
However, some analysts and tech experts are making guesses that this Apple car system will be released to customers between 2023 and 2025.
If you are longing for a car that has automatic doors, an interior without a steering wheel or pedals, virtual or augmented reality built-in the displays, this car might be perfect for you and your family.
