New Report Claims The Apple Car Will Debut Next Year
As far as Christmas miracles go, this might be one of the biggest – the rumored Apple Car is set to be released as soon as the third quarter of 2021, according to a new report.
That report comes via Taiwan’s Economic Daily News, with the report citing unnamed Taiwanese company executives. Production of Apple Car components is said to be ramping up as soon as soon as the second quarter of 2021.
The key supply chain in Taiwan confirmed that Apple expects to release the Apple Car in September next year, at least two years earlier than the original plan. Its prototype has been tested on the roads in California, USA. In response to the demand for Apple Car sourcing, Taiwanese manufacturers such as Taiwan and BizLink are busy.
All of this comes a little out of the blue with talk of the Apple Car having quietened down in recent months. However, we did recently hear that Apple Car’s lead had changed within Apple, suggesting something was afoot.
Bloomberg reported that Apple’s artificial intelligence chief, John Giannandrea is now in charge of everything Apple Car related.
Other sources, including the reliable Ming-Chi Kuo, had claimed that an Apple Car launch wasn’t set to happen until around 2025. Having it ready for next year is a huge exception to those sources and one that is difficult to believe.
