Apple CEO Tim Cook in an interview with Fortune Magazine revealed his plan on iCar; Apple’s rumored car project, iPhone selling, Apple Pay, new headquarters and more. Cook slashed the rumor on their plan of making Apple Car “I’m probably not going to do that” he mentioned their recent hiring of the Automobile veterans is to “explore technologies and explore products”.

“Yeah, I’m probably not going to do that. The great thing about being here is we’re curious people. We explore technologies, and we explore products. And we’re always thinking about ways that Apple can make great products that people love, that help them in some way. And we don’t go into very many categories, as you know. We edit very much. We talk about a lot of things and do fewer. We debate many things and do a lot fewer.”

According to some rumors, Apple is planning to make self-driving Apple Car codenamed Project Titan approved by Tim Cook in late 2014 and assigned to Vice President Steve Zadesky, a former Ford engineer. But, Cook mentioned that hiring new people is the part of company’s ongoing process to “explore things with teams of people” and “explore many different things, many different technologies” – doesn’t hint company’s plan to enter automobile industry with Apple Car.
