Apple’s first car effort might not be self-driving after all

Regarding its future aspirations to penetrate the automotive business, Apple has made some significant promises. Bloomberg claims that Apple had to reduce its plans. Apple was supposed to introduce a completely autonomous automobile in 2025, according to rumours from last year. However, the vehicle has been delayed until 2026 and won’t be self-driving. Apple wanted to develop the first fully autonomous car in history, one without a steering wheel or pedals. However, the report claims that the project’s engineers, internally known as Titan, no longer think that goal is feasible given the state of technology. The Titan team at Apple has seen a lot of executive changes, which may have caused the delay. Doug Field, the engineering executive in charge of Apple’s special projects division, was hired by Ford Motor Company last year. A few months before, a number of other significant members of the Titan project had left the organisation.
