Apple cancels work on an electric car, reports say

·1 min

Apple has reportedly ended its project to build a self-driving electric car after years of effort. The company will shift its focus to the artificial intelligence division instead. While Apple never officially confirmed its plans to make a car, it made several moves over the past decade, such as hiring automotive executives, obtaining permits to test self-driving vehicles, acquiring a self-driving car startup, and securing car-related patents. The decision comes as electric vehicle sales have not met expectations, leading other major manufacturers to reduce their investments.
