he CarPlay enjoys great popularity among users. However, unlike other departments at the firm, there are still a few years left before Apple can get it to work in its own vehicle. Until then, there are those who prefer to imagine this software in the most attractive center console in the automotive industry: Tesla model 3.
Graphic designer John Calkins shared an Apple car concept on Behance, based on the idea of ¿What if Apple made Model 3 and Model Y?
The potential of CarPlay in a car made by Apple
As you can see in the video, the concept is a kind of repowered CarPlay image, in a really excellent way. The Model 3 uses a 15-inch center touchscreen, which for many would be like bringing a MacBook Pro into a car and combining the rest of the necessary automatic interfaces with what we now have with CarPlay.
We can also see that the system has a base on the left side with some applications easily accessible by the driver. In addition to the base, the screen is divided into a panel to control and see the situation of the car, such as headlights, air conditioning and music, and a map that makes navigation easier. If an app is selected, the right side is replaced so that the passenger can perform an action, such as tagging someone, for example.
This interesting concept could be used on Apple car manufactured by Apple in association with third partiesas recent rumors claim, but probably not in a Tesla.
Weeks ago Elon Musk confirmed that a few years ago he was thinking of selling Tesla to Apple, although he didn’t even have an initial meeting to present his proposal. However, before that date, the rumor had been circulating for several years among industry experts, who also claimed that Apple had turned down the proposal due to the inability to get rid of Musk.
By, Apple has never made a statement about it, so part of the story remains unknown. And for now, we can only hope for a clue from Cupertino, which will give us a glimpse into the future of its automotive project.
