Apple hires Tesla VP for electric power lines

Doug Field, Vice President Hardware at Apple, left the iPhone maker in 2013 to return to Apple in August 2018 to work with Bob Mansfield on Project Titan, Apple's autonomous auto project. Field is not the only Tesla executor who can lure Apple back and forth, as a recent report claims that Michael Schwekutsch, VP of Engineering at Tesla, has left the company and will join the same Project Titan team at Apple.

Schwekutsch & # 39; joining Apple is not interesting news, but the fact that his specialty is electric power training. There has been much controversy about Project Titan and what Apple is planning. Some claim it is a fully-fledged electric vehicle, while other reports suggest that Apple will mostly deal with software and AI that autonomous cars need to travel.

With Schwekutsch responsible for electric power lines, it becomes clearer and clearer that Apple plans to plan on its own vehicle. Although 190 employees have recently been fired from the Project Titan team, there is a rumor that Apple may also have planned. With Apple in the supply chain of battery materials, more and more things indicate that the iPhone maker could have an Apple car driving around.
