Apple had to bring back its retired veteran and hardware chief Bob Mansfield to lead the Automobile team (consisting of about 1000 workers) but alleged that the focus has been shifted from building a car to developing the underlying technology that powers self-driving cars.

The workers were laid off as part of apples “reboot” of the car project. Details on how Apple plans to change its car strategy have yet to be revealed. To improve in its new strategy, Apple hired key engineers from companies like Ford, Tesla and Mercedes to help.

 Rumours said that Apple was to launch its electric car by 2020 but with the recent problems they encountered, it is not estimated to be launched by 2021 or later.
