Apple car: Reality or just a myth…..?

Apple is one of the most reputed tech giant and an iconic brand in the smartphone world. By launching iPhone, it revolutionized the way people communicate with each other. The experience offered by this device is polished and user focused. Even today, hardly any other device can get closer. The same is also true for other innovative products from Apple. The smartphone maker has again grasped the media attention. Its because of the rumors (and possibly a shocking news for auto-makers!) that it is building a car now! We called it as Apple car.

How will Apple car be like?

After analyzing the current and future trends in car technologies, we have concluded that it will be an autonomously driven connected electric vehicle. Being enabled with autonomous driving and advanced navigational features, a gentle touch on your iPhone will bring the car in front of you. There also a possibility that Apple may hold the ownership rights of the entire fleet. In that case, the users may be only allowed to use Apple car (such as on lease).

More of an experience, less of a design:

From iPhone to iPad, the end-user experience has always been the top priority of Apple. The Apple car will not be an exception. UI (User-Interface) of every Apple product is very immersive. One can easily end up spending hours with it and still wants more!

Apple car will definitely bring something 'Out Of The Box' and will set up new standards in user experience. Navigation, Head Up Displays, Touch controls - you name it! and it will already be there on the dashboard. When it comes to design, it will be minimalist but the fit and finish will be top-notch.

Despite a few media leaks about this project, it is still unclear what exactly Apple is building. The tech giant has, so far, managed to keep it a top secret to such a level. Even its employees do not know about the end product. Whatever may be the rumors, one thing is for sure that this car will set a new benchmarks in terms of design & user experience!
