While California has begun allowing completely autonomous human-less vehicles to drive on public roads, the iPhone maker hasn't obtained the permits for this yet.
But now, the Cupertino tech giant is reaping the fruits of its ramped-up investment in the new technology, beating out Tesla and Waymo for the second-most self-driving vehicle permits with the DMV, according to a report from the Apple-focused tech blog Mac Reports.
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 chose to this project. The company's fleet of autonomous cars on the road is second only to GM Cruise which has 104 vehicles. It started out with just 3 registered cars in April previous year, and that number has now expanded to 55. In May, Apple got permits for 10 more self-driving vehicles, according to Mac Reports.
We also learned from the DMV that Apple has not applied for a driverless testing permit.
Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
