Apple and the auto industry. It’s long been a rumor that we’ll see it happen eventually, and it we may just be getting closer to that day—in December, the company registered several car-related website domain names for itself.
Reuters reports the new domain names that Apple, Inc. claimed dibs on include apple.car, apple.cars and apple.auto, according to domain-information provider Who.is. With all of the talk about Apple expanding from personal devices to daily drivers, it’s not a big surprise.
The company made some big hires from the auto industry in the last year or so, leading to speculation about the potential for an Apple car and what it may look like. Apple’s “Project Titan” came around as well, and reports surfaced about an electric model by the year 2020.
