When Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) showed off its iOS in the Car idea at its annual Worldwide Developer Conference earlier this year, it was presented as more of a concept rather than a product to be unveiled. However, Apple Insider uncovered evidence that the company may already have an early working model of it—meaning that the system may be closer to production than the company suggested.

Daniel Eran Dilger took a closer look at the photos and videos presented by Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) in its iOS in the Car presentation. He posted the photos used by the company to show off its iOS in the Car feature. It shows a car dashboard interface which has a big power button and volume controls alongside a smaller home button. This sort of setup would greatly deviate from Apple’s current use of a single, prominent home button at the bottom of its devices.

He blamed much of the ills of the pandemic on those who choose not to get vaccinated while also expressing a dislike for the social division COVID-19 has caused. Q4 2021 Read More

He notes that the graphic of the user interface appears to be framed by a separate layer of the dashboard. In other words, the image has been created by meshing two photos together. He said that the dashboard frame is actually from a 2014 Chevy Spark. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has already been working with General Motors Company (NYSE:GM) on integration, so it makes sense that the company would be allowed to pull the frame from one of its vehicles for the presentation.

The hidden contacts list in Apple’s presentation

He then goes a step further and looks at the video of the demonstration. He froze the video at the very beginning and then enhanced it to show a Contacts page. The page reveals the same icons that it showed off in its early presentations of iOS 7. According to Dilger, this means that it wouldn’t make sense to have a functional user interface screen that isn’t visible in Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s official demonstration. As such, he infers that this means the company already has a working model of the system rather than just a basic concept.
