Close-Up Look at Apple's Mysterious Minivan [Video]

Check out this video that offers a close-up look at Apple's mysterious minivan outfitted with an assortment of roof mounted equipment.

AppleInsider obtained the footage from Peter, a reader who spotted the white Dodge Caravan driving through Coral Springs, Florida.

Today's video is one of the first to show the van's interior while in operation, where at least one passenger can be seen interacting with a small handheld device thought to be an iPad mini. The footage fails to show the tablet's screen, but it can be assumed that the device connects with onboard testing or surveying equipment as a data reader or command and control module. As seen in the video, the driver quickly hides the device from view when alerted to the camera's presence.

At this point there has been much speculation as to the purpose of these minivans. They have been spotted in the San Francisco Bay Area, Hawaii, Wisconsin, and Panama. Some people suggest Apple is merely working to enhance its Maps application, perhaps even developing a street view competitor. While others are hoping this has to do with the recent of rumor that Apple is working on a self-driving electric vehicle.
