Apple to make the iCar?

4 February 2015

apple logo Google have been parping on about their driverless cars, and now, rumours are getting louder about Apple making an electric car.

CNN have an image of a patent which has been granted to "Apple Electric Car, Inc.," yesterday, which should get some Apple devotees reasonably excited, and some Android defenders tutting into their laps.

Now specifically, this patent shows an adjustable mount for a computerized display in a golf cart, which isn't strictly going to fulfil the promise of an all singing Siri and app-dancing iCar, but there's no smoke without fire.

Tesla were spotted at Apple a few years ago, which got tongues wagging and Wall Street analysts have been loudly muttering about Apple looking at electric cars as an investment for ages.

And let's be honest here - electric cars and Apple do look like a match made in heaven and with motoring changing toward a new model and, most importantly, a huge money-spinner if you get it right, Apple will absolutely be weighing up a move into the car game.

If this is just a move that Apple are making to create huge LCD dashboard panels, then you've got to ask yourself if you'd be into having that, or indeed, distracted by that.

Feel free to make your own jokes about an Apple car being installed with windows.

    Expecting it to run out of battery on motorways and require factory resets at random. So much nope.
