Why hasn't one of the Apple rumor/news sites had a team parachute in or send in some commandos to see what is hidden there? It shouldn't be that difficult.

Probably an FPV Quadcopter or RC Quadcopter. I doubt this falls into the drone category which is reserved for unmanned automated flying craft.

I wonder if they verified that Apple is building it. If so, it may be the addition of an outdoor stage for the performing arts instead of payment for use of their theater.

I wonder if U2 is standing under the cover till September 9th?

They already confirmed he has nothing to do with it.

Looks like a big watch

Does anyone else think it looks like a big watch? Take away the left and right lower platforms and tah-dah! A big watch.

On topic, I am for the first time in years, kind of excited to hear / see what Apple has going on this round. It may be because I am waiting to add a line to my service, and get myself a new phone, or possibly more.
Depends on if he had automated flight path capabilities. Push button, fly to X coordinates type of controls.

Nearly all of these "drone" videos are RC aircraft videos and not drones at all.

But if you don't know what it is, it's a drone I suppose. I'm no fan of the mislabeling because many people are getting angry about real drones and it is spilling over into regulating my RC Aircraft hobby.

I agree with the performance stage. Rumors are that U2 will be performing to hype the iP6. I'm not buying the rumor though, as to me at least, that would be incredibly gimmicky and Samesung'ish.

Besides, unless you're a hardcore fan of theirs, U2 hasn't exactly been relevant in the past 20 years. (Bono can't even sing anymore.)

I think we have a winner. This type of demo wouldn't be one that would work well on a stage. Seeing a good store mockup in that building could really help to sell this.

Please I hope not. U2 should stay right where they belong…on 'classic rock' radio.
