    Just happened to see this drive by. So they aren't just in California.

    Apple car sighting in Florida

    It's the same camera/GPS mount as the Apple cars. This car did have a California license plate. It drove back, and by me again. This time I got a really good closeup burst in iPhone 6plus.

    "Vehicle similar to the ones Apple is testing sighting in Florida."

    I think even in the original "Apple car" stories, it mentions that the system on the top is leased from another company - so the camera/sensor apparatus on the top isn't Apple-specific; it's just that Apple seems to be the most prominent customer.

    Point being. This is MacRumors so there is a reference in the title to quickly associate what was seen.

    Wonder if all the systems are leased out of California?

    I spend about 5 minutes a week here now so can't vet all the bylines.

    If this is Apple's vehicle it makes me think the whole thing has more to do with 'Maps' improvements then any kind of "Apple Car" testing.

    With some luck I hope I never see an Apple car.

    As much as my iPhone 6 Plus crashes, an Apple Car would be riskier than the overexposed, over-hyped, Tesla. :)

    It looks like an iDrone to me. :D When does it get released and what does it do? I want one.
