According to the source, Apple plans to create a new operating system for its car. It is reported that we are talking about a centrally integrated operating system, like Tesla.
In this case, it means that the operating system will control all aspects of the car, and not just be responsible for the infotainment complex. That is, including the OS will be responsible for driver assistance systems and autopilot, if there is one in Apple Car.
In general, given Apple’s desire to close its software and hardware products, the company’s desire to have its own OS for its car is the most expected. At the same time, the same Tesla operating system is actually based on Linux.
