Watch a drone crash into Apple’s new spaceship campus in Cupertino

Apple Park drone crash video

We’ve been watching footage of the brand new Apple Park in Cupertino, California filmed by drones for months, but over this past weekend, the inevitable finally occurred. A drone crashed into the complex. Matthew Roberts, who has been filming the progress of the Apple Park for years, was contacted by someone who lost control of their drone as it was hovering over the Apple Park this weekend in an attempt to find out where it had crashed.

After some time searching with his own DJI Phantom 4 Pro, Roberts eventually found the drone wedged between two solar panels on the roof of the facility. The original pilot got in touch with Apple to tell the company what happened, but there’s no word yet on whether or not he will get his drone back.

The good news is that, regardless of the drone’s future, the footage of the crash landing will live on. Roberts uploaded the footage on his channel, along with the video of him finding the crashed drone on the roof:

The pilot explained to Roberts that there were no signs of premature failure. The drone just suddenly plummeted to the ground, with the roof of the Apple Park breaking its fall. This is the first incident of its kind (or at least the first one we’ve heard of), so it might prompt Apple to crack down on allowing enthusiasts to fly over its campus in the future. While there doesn’t appear to have been any damage, the drone could have just as easily hit an employee.

That might hurt even more than walking face-first into a glass door.

Best Apple Watch Deals for February 2018

Looking to pick up an Apple Watch and want to get the best deal possible? We’ve got you covered!

Apple products don’t often go on sale, especially newer ones, but sometimes you can find a great deal if you look for it. Hunting down the best deals can take a lot of time, and sometimes it isn’t worth all the extra time spent just to save a few bucks. Luckily, we have already done all that research for you and have rounded up all the best deals you can find on an Apple Watch right now.

These deals are constantly changing, so if you happen to see one that is enticing to you, you’ll want to act quick before it disappears!

Apple Watch Series 0

Not many places still sell the original Apple Watch, but if you find one you can usually get a pretty great deal on the hardware. You won’t have the waterproofing of the newer ones or the upgraded processor and such, but you will still get a great watch for an awesome price.

Apple Watch Series 1

When Apple announced the updated Apple Watch, it unveiled the Series 1 and Series 2 models. There are a few differences between the two, with the Series 1 being more of an entry-level model. It runs on the same dual-core processor as the Series 2 but doesn’t have the “swim-proof” water resistance. The display is a little dimmer than the Series 2, and it is a tad lighter and thinner. If you want a current Apple Watch without spending a ton, this is the model to go for.

Apple Watch Series 2

The Apple Watch Series 2 is the “swim-proof”, water-resistant model that has an OLED Retina display, 18 hours of battery life, and a GPS antenna. It comes with the same dual-core processor as the Series 1 but also includes a ceramic back, which other models don’t have. It offers a direct-fire speaker (which ejects water from the watch) and the display is nearly twice as bright as on other models.

Apple Watch Series 3

The Apple Watch Series 3 is the latest and greatest from Apple. This time around, the company has added LTE to the Watch, allowing you to use it stand-alone. Being so new, odds are you won’t see many discounts on it just yet, but keep an eye out for the deals!

Apple Watch Nike+

The Nike+ version of the Apple Watch is just a Series 2 watch with some minor changes. One of the biggest differences is the Ion-X glass on the front and the custom interface elements. This version comes with its own custom bands that can’t be purchased separately, as well as customized watch faces to show you the information you want to see at a glance.

Apple Watch Edition

Unlike the first time around, the Apple Watch Edition is much more “affordable” this time. Apple gave up the thought of a $ 15,000 smartwatch and priced this one a bit more moderately. It has a white ceramic housing, a sapphire crystal display, and the internals of an Apple Watch Series 2.
