We have asked Apple and Hyundai to comment. Hyundai Motor has previously confirmed that it is in talks with Apple, but added that it believes the iPhone maker is in talks with other car brands.
It is still uncertain whether Apple will release a car or achieve the reported 2024 target (another Korean publication mentions the 2027 timetable). However, after years of uncertainty and trouble, the company’s work on autonomous electric vehicles seems to be moving forward. The question may be more of whether Apple will have an advantage when the potential car comes out. Competitors like Tesla are making their own breakthroughs in battery and autonomous driving technology, and many things may happen within three years.
