Thanks to the good ol’ DMV, we know the iPhone maker is hitting the road with autonomous vehicles.
The rumor mill has spun for years that Apple is developing a car, or at least advanced tech for the car, and today we have hard evidence the tech giant is hitting the road. And not just in a run-of-the-mill sedan: Apple is testing self-driving vehicles.
According to an updated page on the typically dry California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) website, the agency has issued an Autonomous Vehicle Testing Permit to Apple, allowing it to carry out self-driving car tests in the state.
The iPhone 7 maker is the most recent entrant as of April 14, joining the likes of Nvidia, Faraday Future, Ford, Honda, BMW, Nissan, Tesla, Google and Mercedes Benz with permit in hand.
