There’s been a lot of noise about Apple possibly building cars soon, and a new bit of information has surfaced to fan the flame even more.
Swiss blog Apfelblog reports that the company has listed vehicles in legal documents describing its activities in Switzerland:
“Vehicles; Apparatus for locomotion by land, air or water; electronic hardware components for motor vehicles, rail cars and locomotives, ships and aircraft; Anti-theft devices; Theft alarms for vehicles; Bicycles; Golf carts; Wheelchairs; Air pumps; Motorcycles; Aftermarket parts (after-market parts) and accessories for the aforesaid goods.”
Of course, the reality could be a lot less exciting than what these broad terms might have us believe. While people have been holding their breath for news of an Apple car, the only story we’ve been able to dig into is the Apple Watch acting as a key for your vehicle. It’s also possible that the company might test vehicles in the country.
We’ve contacted Apple and will update this post if we hear more.
