Apple hasn’t said that they are working on a new version of their self-driving car but there are some people who think that that is exactly what they are doing. This is thanks to the fact that we have seen many leaks and dips.
One of the latest leaks seems to suggest that Apple could be about to buy McLaren. Due to their lack of experience Apple does have issues with building self-driving vehicles and so they may purchase McLaren so that they have a working company that they can rely on that knows how to make vehicles.
They could be purchasing it for another reason of course and one reason may be so they can get their hands on the data. This is interesting of course, however McLaren have said that no acquisition is taking place. They also said that they haven’t been in any talks with Apple about an investment.
There are many people who think that Apple might only be at work on software for a self-driving car.
