What is Apple up to these days? The company is reportedly snatching up tech and design experts from the automotive industry, leading many people to believe an iCar is on the way (please don't let it be called an iCar). The latest development jives with anonymous reports that Apple is working on "vehicle development." 

It's also possible that Apple isn't making an actual car but is getting into related technology involving autonomous vehicles (take that, Google), mapping, or an upgraded CarPlay. Whatever the final product is, or if it even makes it to market, it seems Apple has had a secret lab with car experts running for at least a year. The former head of Mercedes-Benz's Silicon Valley research unit is reportedly involved, as is a grip of people who came over from Tesla. 

But for real, please don't let there be an iCar.
