This is pretty much what all its rivals have been doing as well, but in Apple's case the brand may never progress to the point where it'll be building its own self-driving electric vehicle.

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.

Apple has 55 permits that allow it to test self-driving cars on California roads, finishing second behind General Motors' Cruise division, which has 104 permits.

In May, Apple got permits for 10 more self-driving vehicles, according to Mac Reports.

Now, specifications of a couple of rumored Android phones have surfaced online hinting that the launch is just around the corner. The Note 9 is also set to include the same stereo speakers used in the S9, which will also be an improvement from the Note 8.

It's important to note that companies like Waymo and Uber used to have more self-driving cars in California.

Didi past year opened its main research facility in Mountain View of California, 860 kilometres north of Los Angeles, to focus on developing artificial intelligence, including autonomous driving.

Apple still hasn't publicly announced its plans when it comes to autonomous cars.
