iCar Release Date Rumours

Route back in February 2015, there were mumbles that Apple was taking a shot at an auto that would “give Tesla a keep running for its cash” after Business Insider addressed an Apple worker with learning of the subject. This, combined with sightings of autos enrolled to Apple clad with sensors/cameras (which were later exposed), got everybody discussing the possibilities of an Apple Car, or iCar.

The iCar venture is codenamed ‘Titan’, as indicated by The Wall Street Journal, which initially expressed there were “a few hundred” Apple representatives chipping away at the undertaking. While reports initially asserted that Apple was taking a shot at a self-driving auto, a 2017 meeting with CEO Tim Cook recommends that Apple may have changed bearings on the venture and is presently dealing with a self-governing driving stage. This was upheld in November 2017, when two Apple PC researchers distributed research proposing a 3D recognition framework called VoxelNet, which they said would work successfully at helping independent autos keep away from crashes with people on foot and cyclists. It’s since developed that the organization has recorded a patent managing in-vehicle atmosphere control.

Whatever the final result, Apple is creating something auto related, regardless of whether it’s a self-sufficient driving framework, an Apple Car or just an in-auto excitement framework – despite the fact that the organization will never concede what. We’ll give you a chance to peruse all the underneath confirm and choose for yourselves.

Could Apple be working on a Transportation System?

While many have suggested that Apple is working on an autonomous car (or a system to sell to other manufacturers), a report from Business Insider and comments from analyst Steven Milunovich suggest that something else could be in store for motoring fans.

BI recently discovered a secret Apple office in Berlin that is apparently devoted to transportation using engineers hired from car companies. But what if the company is working on more than just a car – what if it was developing an in-car entertainment system?

USB analyst Steven Milunovich discussed Project Titan with Horace Dediu and Neil Cybart and raised three issues:

  • Transportation is bigger than IT and healthcare, two industries Apple is already deep in.
  • Car ownership may plummet with autonomous driving.
  • The company is building expertise in core sensor, driving and mapping technologies.


The most logical outcome? Project Titan “is likely to be a transportation platform – not a car, but the entire experience”, Milunovich remarked.

It’s an interesting idea; if cars in the future can drive themselves, what will the occupants be doing? It’s likely that passengers will require some form of entertainment, communications and apps to keep them occupied – something Apple provides with its other devices.

With all that on offer, the car will also require Wi-Fi, broadband connectivity, navigation information and its own operating system – all of which the company offers. Combine that with rumours of an upcoming Siri-enabled smart speaker to rival Amazon’s hugely popular Alexa-powered Echo. It’s not hard to imagine a future where Siri controls and operates your car, providing you with an iOS-like user interface to interact with.
