Volkswagen: It is difficult for Apple to build its own car

As one of the longest-running rumors in the world of technology and the automotive industry, without being confirmed by the company, Apple is said to be developing its own electric car.

However, Volkswagen CEO Herbert Diess believes that it is unlikely that Apple will launch its own car, so it is more likely that the American company will actually invest in a digital environment for cars. In other words, if Diess is right, then Apple is not working on a complete car, but on software that would make its products an integral part of the driving experience in modern vehicles.

Diess explained at the hub.berlin tech conference that investing in a car would be a big undertaking, so tech giant Cupertino may eventually decide to focus on software such as the advanced version of CarPlay.

Indeed, on the sidelines of this year’s WWDC, Apple announced a series of major upgrades to CarPlay, which are even more integrated into the car’s features. With the advent of iOS, CarPlay will support multiple screens, while air conditioning, seat heating / cooling and radio control have been added to its functions, without the user having to leave CarPlay.

In related news, the Volkswagen Group has been accused of being involved in human rights abuses in the Chinese province of Xinjiang, where the German company has a large plant along with SAIC. A team of United Nations experts and human rights groups has expressed concern about forced labor practices in relation to VW’s suppliers and activities in the region.

The auto industry has repeatedly denied allegations of forced labor, saying its policies are part of an effort to reduce unemployment and poverty in Xinjiang.
