Apple now has 55 self-driving cars in California

Apple has more than doubled the number of its self-driving cars, the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has confirmed. This is pretty much what all its rivals have been doing as well, but in Apple's case the brand may never progress to the point where it'll be building its own self-driving electric vehicle.

Since Apple has 55 cars undergoing testing right now, that makes it the second largest self-driving fleet in California.

Apple hasn't really detailed its plans for the self-driving project that it has got going on but the company is steadily increasing the number of resources that it has made a decision to this project. In May, Apple got permits for 10 more self-driving vehicles, according to Mac Reports. Waymo applied to the California DMV for a permit to test without human supervision last month, though it's not clear whether it has been accepted.

Apple still lags far behind General Motor's Cruise division, which leads the pack with 104 vehicles. Among the 53 companies, which include other mainstream carmakers such as Nissan, Toyota, Ford and Subaru, there are a total of 409 self-driving cars and 1,573 drivers. By March of this year, the company had 45 cars on the road.

In April 2017 NV reported that Apple received a license to test driverless cars on roads in California.

Apple's quickly growing fleet of cars suggests that it's certainly taking self-driving development seriously. In June that year, Apple CEO Tim Cook said Apple was working on developing the autonomous-driving software, which will be added to existing auto models rather than building a self-driving vehicle from scratch.
