Ls to press reports the American multinational technology company headquartered in Cupertino has registered domain names related to automobiles.
The electronic maker has recently registered the domain names, which include apple.car, apple.cars and apple.auto in December, according to domain information provider Who.is.
The report first came to light when MacRumors ran an article speculating that the iPhone company may be contemplating entry to the car market.
However, the report said then that the domain names could be related to Apple’s CarPlay, which allows drivers’ access contacts on their iPhones make calls or listen to voicemails without taking their hands off the steering wheel.
While never openly acknowledging plans to build a car, Apple has been aggressive in recruiting auto experts from companies such as Ford or Mercedes-Benz.
Car technology has become a prime area of interest for Silicon Valley companies including Google Inc., which has built a prototype self-driving car.
