Apple’s iphone 12 Pro and iPad Pro models have lidar sensors. These are the sensors that determine variable distances by targeting an object or a surface with laser beams and measure the time needed by the reflected light to reach or return to the receiver.

The battery is expected to reduce cost and increase range and will be based on ” single- cell design”

The Future:

Apple car is supposed to have no steering wheel and no pedals. It would be a definite and specific example of hands off driving. Though Apple has to face many competitors like Tesla, Tata, Hyundai, Suzuki and Waymo ( Google’s self driving car project) who are also planning with self driving cars or have launched already, still Apple has it’s own fan base around the world which might not dishearten it’s optimistic project at any cost.
