10 Potential Problems That Will Probably Happen With The Apple Car
Over the past week, there have been plenty of rumors Apple is trying to design a car that could hit the streets as early as 2020 because Apple's unofficial motto is, "We didn't do it first, but we'll do it better."
For now, there isn't a lot of information about the car besides "it will probably have a battery," but it's not exactly a stretch to say the car might integrate a few of the things we've come to love (and hate) about Apple.
I could make a list of all the things I'd like to see in the vehicle (which will hopefully be called the "iCar" and spawn a bunch of Nickelodeon-related jokes), but that's not as fun as listing all of the things we should be worried about based on Apple's track record.
These are just some of my many concerns.
What happens when a bug hits your windshield at a certain angle while driving?
It shouldn't have caused that much damage, but the glass somehow shattered anyway.
Sadly, AppleCare doesn't cover water damage.
The driver was probably using Apple Maps.
You'll have plenty of battery until you suddenly lose 20 percent without warning.
Your car will also spontaneously shut off when it gets too hot, too cold or for no real reason at all.
You'll probably be able to start the car with your fingerprint, but you'll end up having to use the key at least half of the time.
Just don't try it too many times or else you'll get locked out and have to wait a few minutes before you're allowed to try again.
Sending it back for repairs is going to require a pretty big box.
I can't think of any other way they'd handle it.
Flat tire? Hopefully your spare was screened and approved by Apple or else you're not going to be able to put it on.
You can try to go with a third party, but you're probably going to have to jailbreak your car first.
Nobody knows what the price is going to be, but it'll probably be more than you should pay for it.
Get ready to essentially pay an extra $10,000 for a grill emblem.
There might be car-shaped cases for your iPhone, but what you're really going to need is an iPhone case for your car.
It doesn't matter how carefully you drive -- it's only a matter of time before random scratches just start showing up.
It's going to be hard to fix your engine when it's impossible to look under the hood.
You might be able to pry it open, but you'll probably void the warranty.
Finally, it's important to remember that road rage incidents are going to rise as Apple Car owners clash with Tesla drivers over who really has the hippest car.
There can only be one.
