After a post-holiday progress review supposedly conducted by Apple design chief Jony Ive, the iPhone-maker placed a hiring freeze on the team called 'Project Titan.' Ive is said to have "expressed his displeasure" with the direction of the group that is thought to have more than 1,000 people working for it.

A previous report by AppleInsider found that the tech giant was experiencing manufacturing issues, forcing Apple to consider partnering with a more established automaker such as BMW.
Although the German carmaker was seemingly reluctant to enter into such an agreement, Apple was thought to have spoken with them about using BMW's electric i3 model as a development platform. Apple is said to be especially interested in BMW due to the automaker's ability to go beyond traditional approaches to vehicles, according to the report.
