Whether or not the day will come when Apple unveils their own car remains to be seen, but for now, it seems that the company is definitely showing a ton of interest in automobiles with the various patents we’ve seen the company file for in the past. In fact, here’s another you can add to the list.
A couple of years ago, there was a Tesla that was involved in a fatal crash. Now according to the NTSB, it seems that they are laying some of the blame on Apple for the crash. While the governing body did lay most of the blame on Tesla, it seems that they believe that Apple should shoulder some of the responsibility.
Subscription models are all the rage these days, especially on the software front. However, it seems that the subscription model is starting to spill over for physical products as well. Nissan has recently announced a brand new service called the Nissan Switch where for a monthly subscription fee, it would allow users to access a bunch of Nissan cans on demand.
Cars these days are getting smarter where they come with a variety of sensors and cameras on board that can warn drivers of obstacles. All of this seems to be paving the way towards a future of self-driving cars, but it seems that there still needs to be some work done on them, especially when they can be tricked with a simple two-inch piece of tape.
Earlier this month, the iOS 13.4 beta revealed that Apple had an upcoming feature in the form of a digital car key, where users would, in theory, be able to use their iPhones to unlock their (compatible) cars. Now upon further investigation, more details about the upcoming feature has been revealed.
Safety is extremely important for bike riders, especially with the number of bike related accidents that happen every year. Granted, according to the NHTSA, that number seems to be decreasing, but that doesn’t mean that we should stop trying to be safe drivers on the road, and also cyclists should always try to keep themselves protected at all times.
As electric cars become more common, there will also become a growing need for more EV chargers. Unfortunately, as it stands, EV chargers simply aren’t quite as common or ubiquitous compared to gas stations, but there has been work by companies to try and get more of them out there.
Let’s say a family member gave you their old laptop or computer and did not bother wiping or formatting it. On the computer, there are a bunch of software and services that belonged to the previous owner. Would you, legally, have the right to use that software and services even though you did not buy them?
We’ve all been there and we’ve all experienced the frustration of being stuck behind a slow driver, a traffic jam, or drivers who are too distracted to move when the traffic light turns green. Many of us have also been guilty of honking on our horns whenever we find ourselves in these situations.
Being able to remotely unlock your car using your smartphone isn’t new. We’ve seen this tech used by carmakers such as Hyundai, but now it looks like Apple is interested in creating something of their own, at least that’s what’s being hinted at in the recent release of iOS 13.4 beta.
It has been nearly a decade since the last Hummer was rolled off the production line. For those who love the truck and wouldn’t mind seeing a modern revival of it, you could be in luck because GMC recently posted a teaser on its website where they are hinting that the Hummer will be revived.
When it comes to stealing car parts, the wheels are probably one of the easier and more accessible parts that can be stolen, especially the rims which can either be resold or smelted down to be used for something else. However, it seems that Ford might be working on a way to try and prevent that from happening by using 3D printing.
As a delivery and logistics company, UPS has been rather aggressive in finding new high-tech ways of staying ahead of the competition. The company has explored the possibility of using drones to help make deliveries, and now it seems that they are looking at the possibility of self-driving delivery vans.
The license plates of our cars are pretty standard in terms of their design, and they are basically used to identify individual cars. In terms of customization, there is the option of purchasing a vanity plate, but even then, they’re still pretty much consisted of letters and numbers, but that could soon change if you live in Vermont.
