At the end of January, the Cupertino company declared that it wanted to restructure its department linked to the development ofApple Car. The brand had also confirmed to CNBC at the time that 200 of its employees had been removed from the project to be reassigned to other working groups, including that of machine learning.
But obviously, Apple would have lied. The San Francisco Chronicles, newspaper published and sold in the United States, in the state of California, we learn indeed that the brand with the apple sent a mail to California Employment Development Department to justify 190 layoffs. Among the employees thanked, 38 engineering program managers, 33 hardware engineers, 22 developers and 31 product design engineers. They were all working on the famous Apple Car. They will have to leave work on April 26, 2019.
So, lie or rehiring as a result? This is the big question that arises when reading this information. Still remember what Apple Car is, and more specifically carOS : the Californian firm would indeed seek to create its own autonomous vehicle system. Either through a completely innovative vehicle, like the electric van mentioned by World is Small in recent days, or by integrating an operating system with partner vehicles. In any case, the project is still in its infancy, as evidenced by these redundancies.
