Apple has been rumored to be working on an electric, semi-autonomous vehicle for a while, however it has been revealed that two of the partners that they were hoping to work with have said no to working with them. Both BMW and Daimler (Mercedes-Benz) have taken a pass on working with Apple. Apple has been scooping up vehicle engineers so it will be interesting to see how this all pans out and who (if anyone) joins up with Apple. The Verge has more details.
Apple won't officially confirm that it's working on an electric, semi-autonomous car, but if the rumors are true it could need to partner with a seasoned car company to help it navigate the tricky and expensive world of automobile manufacturing. Today the list of potential partners just got a little shorter. BMW and Daimler have discontinued negotiations with Apple over the tech giant's rumored car, codenamed "Project Titan," according to German business publication Handelsblatt.
