Apple wants to build its cars in the same way as the iPhone

Published

on

According to Apple, it plans to stick to its time-tested iPhone and other technology strategy when launching its future car. This strategy assumes that the company develops the product itself and orders the components, and the contract manufacturer assembles the device under the Apple brand.

The source writes that the company may end up choosing a not-so-well-known automaker to build its Apple Car. This news comes after negotiations with well-known car brands have reached an impasse at the moment. The company has three main options for building a car: partnering with a major automaker, building its own production lines, or merging with contract manufacturers, similar to how Foxconn does the iPhone.

Apple was in talks with renowned automaker Hyundai and its subsidiary Kia, but at some point the negotiations ended. Sources noted that the reason is that Apple is asking to create a car for it, but not to indicate the manufacturer’s brand on it. Large companies do not agree to such terms.

In addition, the source notes that Apple wants to completely rethink the concept of the car and how it is made, including the interior, bodywork and other details. It also repels large companies.

There are no more details about Geely’s upcoming electric car, but as far as the HarmonyOS Smart Cockpit is concerned, it’s a pretty smart system. So, for example, it automatically turns on the dark theme of the media system design depending on the time of day, and also automatically turns on air recirculation at the entrance to the tunnel. The tight integration of HarmonyOS Smart Cockpit allows you to display the navigation running on your phone anywhere – even on the projection screen, even on the dashboard, even on the central display of the media system. And this, of course, is far from all its possibilities.
