If the new reports are properly published, Apple’s first car will be released by the company in September next year, two years ahead of schedule.
According to Wccftech, the Apple Car was originally scheduled to launch in 2023. However, Economic News Daily quoted an executive director of an anonymous Taiwanese manufacturer as saying the plan was in place, meaning we could see the product much earlier than expected. Apple’s Taiwan supply chain partners, not named in the latest report, are expected to mass-produce the necessary components as early as Q2/2021.
The report mentions Apple is working on a covert operation, testing some of the movable prototypes of the car project on the road in California, USA. Apple appears to have received a license to test self-driving cars in 2017, in which the company is said to be serious about product development.
Additionally, an earlier report said that Apple is working closely with TSMC on self-driving chips and is said to be in “preliminary cooperation negotiations” with popular auto suppliers to complete. my plan. They are also hiring employees from large companies like Tesla and others to work on the project.
Car manufacturers often announce new cars years in advance, so there’s a chance Apple will do the same with the Apple Car to release it later, according to MacRumors.
