Apple has lost yet another employee from its EV project. 

Mark Gurman revealed in his latest Power On newsletter that Joe Bass, the lead engineering program manager of Apple's EV project, has joined Meta as the director of technical program management for mixed reality technologies. 

Gurman says the entire Apple Car management team that was set up a year ago is nearly gone with the departure of Bass. Several top managers left Apple in June last year while Doug Field, the former team lead of Apple Car, was poached by Ford.

This year is critical for the Apple Car team as the company is reportedly planning to launch its self-driving car as soon as 2025. Apple's strategy for its EV is to have a version with full self-driving capabilities that requires no human intervention.
