The Apple Car may soon become a reality. First it was rumoured to be an electric car under Apple's 'Project Titan' in 2015. But, now, the tech giant has filed for an in-car virtual reality entertainment system with no windows.
The car is expected to have full self-driving capacity and it is rumoured that the car would work exactly as an Apple iPhone does. With the help of Apple's AI voice assistant Siri, the car would also be able to park itself at a specific location.
Some patents that have been acquired by the tech company indicate that Apple may hide the steering wheel of the car and it would only emerge in case of an emergency.
Recently, Apple hired veteran Ford executive, Desi Ujkashevic, to oversee the development of the car. Reports also suggest that Apple has collaborated with a South Korean outsourced semiconductor assembly and test (OSAT) company to build the car's autopilot technology.
Through the in-car virtual reality entertainment system, passengers will be able to completely immerse themselves into their in-headset, location-based experiences. The VR content is meant to be synchronised with the movement and acceleration of the Apple Car and will be based on the passenger's commute.
The reason why the Apple Car will not be having windows is to reduce motion sickness and passengers would be able have a window-like experience through their VR headsets which would be accessing cameras installed on the exterior of the car.
The car is expected to release in 2025, but Apple has not confirmed it yet.
The window-less car has left netizens baffled and asking how the car would be charged. Here is what the Apple fans are saying:

3. OF COURSE AN APPLE CAR DOESN'T HAVE WINDOWS
(did you see what we did there?)
Looks like someone saw the windowless cars in Time Cop and thought "you know, if we just smooth out the design they're actually a great idea!" pic.twitter.com/fvNg7oFPPJ— PJ Farts (@PJMorell) May 18, 2022
