written by IMoreThe so-called Apple Car project is considered one of the projects that started working on it years ago, and several managers and engineers were added to its team at regular intervals and left after a while. However, we still don’t know exactly what this project is trying to achieve. Some reports indicate that Apple is trying to produce an all-electric car with the help of companies such as Hyundai and Kia, while other reports say that the brand is working on technologies that others can use. If these rumors are true, the Apple car will probably be equipped with self-driving capabilities similar to Tesla cars.
Apple is currently trying to change the way we use cars with CarPlay features. The introduction of iOS 16 in June made the company present its plans to continue the development of CarPlay. According to this company, new cars that use multiple displays interact with the company in terms of software to offer a newer look to their customers. The next big update to CarPlay won’t be available until 2023, but Apple says automakers can test it on their products if they agree.
iOS 16 was announced in June and now, after releasing several beta versions of the operating system, it is expected to be generally available to users around the world later this month. The same goes for tvOS 16 and watchOS 9. Meanwhile, we will probably have to wait until October for the release of the final version of macOS 13 Ventura and iPadOS 16.
