With iOS 10 now available for anyone with a compatible device, app developers are pushing updates versions of their apps out to the App Store, with those apps taking advantage of any new APIs and features that iOS 10 brings to the table.

If you were planning on going shopping, or taking a trip to the office or the airport, would you prefer to make that trip in a boring old car, or in the comfort of a helicopter with stunning aerial views of the world around you? A new deal between Uber and Airbus could be about to usher in an era of on-demand flight services that could see the general public opting to travel by helicopter rather than the tried and tested four-wheel solutions. The initiative, will be an ongoing project and will initially debut at the Sundance Film Festival later this week.
