Apple has learned that building an autonomous vehicle is hard, even if you’re one of the biggest tech companies in the world.
According to Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman, Apple is scaling back the design of its first self-driving car and even delaying the launch. The latest intel said it would be released in 2025, but now the vehicle will reportedly be delayed until 2026.
Apple has been working on its secretive AV project, dubbed “Titan” for years. In 2021, details emerged about the vehicle’s design not having a steering wheel or pedals, making it really, really autonomous as compared to other AVs like those made by Tesla. But now it seems Apple has been humbled by technological constraints.
