The electric vehicle has been rumored for a long time now, but now has leaks regarding its definite unveiling or launch date on September 2021.

Get ready Apple fans and enthusiasts, not only would Apple release new electronic devices, smart gadgets, and rumored Macbooks with upgraded M1, but also an electric vehicle by the third quarter of 2021. Yes, Apple leaks and rumors have all been pointing to the Cupertino giant's latest venture which would soon rollout.

According to Economic Daily News from Taiwan, Apple has accelerated the production and creation of the Apple Car which would soon rival the popular Palo Alto-based company, Tesla, in EV technology. The long-running rumor was given clarity by an anonymous Taiwanese supply chain that has been alongside the Cupertino giant in this manufacturing.

Apple Car: Everything You Need to Know

The rumor focused on one solid piece of information for the Apple Car and it is the electric vehicle's 2021 Q3 release in September. No other details have surfaced regarding the car, along with some other minor rumors which have no definite or concrete points to support them. 

The Apple Car is said to have a "self-driving" chip from the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corporation (TSMC) who is also known to be the Cupertino giant's partnership with its internal device chipsets. TSMC was the manufacturers who brought the 5nm A14 Bionic Chip and the popular ARM-based Silicon SoC, the M1.

Apple Car vs. Tesla: Would it Be Good Enough?

According to Mac Rumors, the Apple Car would have a self-driving chip which would be similar to Tesla's FSD that is currently in the beta state. Moreover, the Apple Car's 2021 "release" would more likely be a 2021 preview or teaser of the future electric vehicle. 

Apple is not one to give previews on new devices, as the company launches a device and makes pre-order available in the coming days with a delivery date within weeks. However, this may be the case since the Apple Car would be harder to manufacture and secure stocks compared to handheld devices.
