  • Apple has applied for government permission to test drone usage beyond current FAA limits [Update]

Applicants include giants in the tech and aerospace sectors, including Intel, Apple, Airbus, and Qualcomm. This benefit will grow through 2025 when they foresee more than 100,000 jobs created and economic impact of $82 billion.

Although it's possible to walk into just about any electronics store now and purchase a drone for a relatively small amount of money, the middle ground - that is, using drones for commercial delivery versus making YouTube videos or bombing people in the Middle East - has been a longstanding challenge.

Maggie Hassan, D-N.H., that it will be hard for the United States to establish global drone craft technology and market leadership unless a remote ID requirement is put in place. But the notoriously secretive Apple could be testing drones for any number of reasons.

Sears partners with Amazon to sell tires
During the ordering process, there is an option to choose to have the tires shipped to the location and have them installed there. The business said it's about 2,100 specialists in its Automobile Centers across the country to perform bicycle installations.

On Wednesday, the United States Department of Transportation and the Federal Aviation Administration announced the winners of the Unmanned Aerial Systems Integration Pilot Program (UASIPP).

Top technology companies including Apple, Amazon, Intel and Qualcomm, are said to be taking part in a USA drone test initiative announced by President Donald Trump previous year, with a slew of new tests starting today.

President Donald Trump signed a directive a year ago to establish the "innovation zones" that allow exemptions to some drone regulations, such as flying over people, nighttime flights and flights where the aircraft can't be seen by the operator.

Kenyan dam bursts causing "huge destruction", deaths
Even before this week's dam-burst, rains had killed 132 people and displaced 222,000 in Kenya alone, according to the government. Local leaders are now investigating whether the farmer had a licence to erect the dams.

"Apple is committed to protecting people's privacy, including processing this data to blur faces and licence plates prior to publication", the company said. As far as we know, the company behind the iPhone, never publicly spoke about it having an interest in drones and their participation in the program comes somewhat as a surprise.

A report in 2016 indicated that Apple was planning to use drops to collect data for Apple Maps, and now the company has confirmed that initiative. Another guess would be that drones may compensate for a 'flagging demand' for the iPhone X, although that may seem far-fetched. Let us know in the poll below.

Lawrence provided committee members with information about FAA efforts to enhance UAS airspace authorization and traffic management through the nationwide beta test of the Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC), which allows drone operators to request and receive real-time authorization from the agency. You can use the following links directly from manufacturers, such as DJI, Parrot, Yuneec or retailers like Amazon, B&H, BestBuy or eBay.
