The technology <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/what-is-lidar">also is used</a> for other tech, including a few iPhone models.&nbsp;</p><p>Apple was talking with several lidar suppliers working on next-gen hardware, according to Bloomberg. The report also said Apple has developed in-house much of the software needed for self-driving vehicles. But a vehicle launch may be at least five years away, Bloomberg reported, citing internal Apple sources.&nbsp;</p><p>In recent weeks and months, reports have also claimed Apple was in talks with several car manufacturers about building Apple-branded vehicles.</p><p>In January, a South Korean newspaper reported advanced talks with Hyundai, with plans to build a <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/apple-and-hyundai-plan-to-collaborate-beta-car-say-reports-2021-1">"beta" version</a> of an Apple vehicle within about a year.
