Finally, has the Apple Car found its first subcontractor?

0 0

The vehicle should not see the light of day for several years.

If there is one subject on everyone’s lips who have been interested in the case of the Apple Car since it made the headlines, it is its manufacturer. We know that Cupertino has a habit of outsourcing most of its production, whether with its mobiles or its Macs, and this should not change for the vehicle. But then, who will be in charge of the work?

Several names have already been mentioned, such as Kia, Hyundai and even Foxconn in assembly. But on the component side, the question remained unresolved until now. However, a new report signed The Elec seems to know more… Indeed, according to the Korean media, OSAT – based in the same country – would have been mentioned to test processor modules for Apple.

No major contract yet

Be careful though, because OSAT seems to have only been contacted for a test . This therefore means that the company will above all have to convince Apple that its production lines are capable of designing the desired material. If this is the case, it is then possible that the customer will turn to another company, capable of supporting larger-scale logistics, to continue deliveries.

OSAT had thus already been seen at the helm of M1 processors for computers, but it was TSMC that had been chosen for the volume. The Taiwanese service provider is better able to meet orders that may run into the millions of units when the Apple Car is released. It is he who engraves the CPUs of iPhones and iPads .

Horizon… 2023

Also according to information from The Elec , the collaboration between OSAT and Apple for its smart car would have started several months ago and should end by next year. This therefore leaves plenty of time for the brand to transmit the file to a second partner: the car should not be marketed for even longer.

The interior could revolutionize the market, with an improved CarPlay experience and a particularly neat design .
