Today, on February 22, it was reported that Apple has allegedly been developing chip modules and the packages to be mounted in Apple’s supposed futuristic electric car with a South Korea-based outsourced semiconductor assembly and test (OSAT) firm.

It’s being reported that this project began last year and is likely to be topped off at the end of 2023. Perpetually, the speculated move from Apple deliberately coexists with Taiwan’s Foxconn, reportedly prepping up to construct a staunched production line in Thailand for Apple’s long-rumored Apple electric car.

Cupertino reportedly binds with prominent manufacturers to produce revolutionary electric vehicles to stand out a mile. The OSAT company created a chip blueprint which being constantly operates the autopilot function, more like the concept which is being used in Tesla vehicles. Those chips, be in charge of AI computations, usually integrate a neural processing unit, CPU, GPU, memory, and also camera interface alongside other functions.

As per the previous report, when developing an autopilot chip module, Tesla reportedly used Samsung’s memory. It also set out the assembly work to South Korean company JCET STATSChipPAC Korea. Moreover, the iPhone-maker would also follow the track down of Tesla in its project.

According to sources, the Apple car project with the South Korean firm has been going on a short stretch of the year. The project is ushered by Apple Korea, Apple’s zonal office in South Korea. The subsidiary has been provided with the bill of material (BOM) rights for the project.

At an identical time, a few months back, Apple Korea had also offered some projects and modules for Apple’s M1 processor, which was launched in November 2020, to US and Chinese OSAT firms with factories in South Korea.

It is worth mentioning a few backs back; Apple granted a patent related to user authentication to Air Pod. The patent abstract shows that It can be possible to authenticate Air Pods using nearby devices, including ultrasonic signals voice recognition. Also, it has included a few new features to Air Pod, such as support for the Find My network, Conversation Boost, and Spatial Audio.
