The Apple iCar That Will Never Be

It began with the iPod, then the iPhone, the iPad , and now an iCar? Apple board member Mickey Drexler states that the late Steve Job’s dream was to create an iCar. Can you imagine? An Apple built vehicle! A car integrated with touch screens, connectivity to the aforementioned Apple products, and Siri voice recognition on the road—all executed with Apple’s signature minimalist, sleek style.

Unfortunately, without Jobs it is unlikely that the iCar will ever be manufactured. Instead, current heads at Apple have recently been granted a patent for a steering-wheel-mounted remote or something or another. It’s kind of lame and seems like a step back for the visionary brand.

Many Apple fanatics are sure to be fantasizing about other possibilities for the iCar that will never be. Consider an iPhone or iPad as a key for the car, placing either item on the dashboard or center console, syncs itself to the vehicle and thus becoming an AI of some sorts. The iPhone/iPad Key (iKey) will b e the easiest way to customize the vehicle in terms of the driver- what music they want to listen to, shortcuts to places they often visit, and other helpful apps ready to utilize with a simple voice recognition control. 

What features would you have liked to see if Apple created an iCar?
