Apple Inc. is set to announce this week it is to add Ferrari and Volvo Car Corp to its list of carmakers with which it’s working to develop and install an on-board operating system, Wall Street Journal has reported, citing people familiar with the initiative. The announcement will coincide with the opening of the annual motor show in Geneva, which the car industry often uses to show off concept cars and other upcoming technologies. Last June, Apple announced its “iOS in the Car” to have the iPhone operate dashboard electronics, using the on-board display for services such as maps and traffic information.
