How the Apple Car Might Work
The Apple Car is expected to be a fully-electric car that will be self-driving. Talking of the features, the Apple Car could function as your iPhone. It has been learned that Apple has revived its old original patent and will introduce a new technology enabling the Apple Car to work as a function.
The patent named “Guidance of Autonomous Vehicles in Destination Vicinities Using Intent Signals” reveals that the Apple Car could be parked using the iPhone touch screen and voice control functions. Once the technology is introduced, the self-driving car would be able to park itself at a specific location on parking space after you reach your destination. It is believed that Apple’s voice assistant Siri could also play a role in enhancing the capabilities of the car.
Drivers may be able to mark a spot on the map on their iPhone screens so that the car takes them to the exact location. One could also use gesture control or voice control to guide the car to a specific location.

Making it completely self-driving, some patents suggest that Apple could even hide the steering wheel in the car which would only pop out in case of emergency. Moreover, Apple is also planning to equip the car with a sunroof where drivers will be able to control the opacity of the glass and light entering through it.
