Apple Hires Auto Industry Veteran
Apple has reignited rumours it’s going to make a car by hiring another former Tesla engineer with 25 years of experience in the automotive industry.
The title is perhaps deliberately vague, but has nonetheless stoked the ongoing rumours Apple plans to make a car given his background and experience in designing vehicle interiors.
A patent application was also filed earlier this year by the Cupertino company for a wireless charging system for autonomous vehicles.
According to Bloomberg, Mr MacManus is at least the third Tesla engineering executive to join Apple in the last year.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk once called Apple a “Tesla graveyard” after the tech giant hired a number of people who had been fired from Tesla.
