Domains Apple.car, apple.cars and apple.auto have been registered by Apple
The certainty that in the near future we will have a car on the market under the Apple brand is becoming more likely. We have just celebrated a new year and Apple already strikes with awesome news. Recently discovered that the Apple company has registered 3 domains related with Apple Car.
Apple.car, apple.cars and apple.auto are those domains that were registered by Apple in December 2015. It doesn’t prove that the Apple is already developing a smart-car, however it shows that Apple wants to associate itself with automobile sector. Of course those domains could be related with Apple’s CarPlay, but it’s more inspiring to think that it is related with much-rumored electric vehicle plans.
Apple Car in 2019?
Few months ago, Tony Fadell, the originator of the iPod, said that Steve Jobs had some solid plans related to Apple Car back in 2008, however the project didn’t move forward for few reasons. First of all, the technology at that time was very limited. Secondly, the company was busy with other highly important projects, like the iPhone development.
Nowadays the technology is improved quite a lot and we have some effective engines which are capable to replace combustion engines and it is a good time for Apple to advance in this project and create its own smart-car. Nevertheless, there is no concrete information about the development of this project, but we are almost sure that it is one of the main objectives of the company.
Some rumors saying that Apple will launch its own electric autonomous car in 2019. In fact, the company has increased its team by hiring the experts from the automobile industry. It means that Apple is going forward and soon we can expect some surprise. Stay tuned.
