Apple now has 55 self-driving cars testing in California
Apple now has 55 self-driving cars testing The California Department of Motor Vehicles affirms that Apple has 55 self-driving vehicles and 83 drivers allowed to test on the state’s streets.
Apple had around 45 self-driving vehicles in January.
Apple hasn’t yet connected for a different driverless testing license that would take into consideration testing without a man in the auto. The California DMV started issuing that kind of allow in April.
