Apple has secured a permit for ‚Äč‚Äčautonomous-vehicle testing in California, the Wall Street Journal reports. The permit awarded by California's Department of Motor Vehicles is Apple's first for autonomous cars and allows it to test drive vehicles on public roads in the largest US state by population; Alphabet and Tesla already hold the same permits. An Apple spokesman declined to comment on the permit and referred to a statement it issued in December, when the company said it is investing in machine learning and autonomous systems.
