    Apple has been given permission to use drones to improve its digital mapping service after receiving approval from the US government.

    The Cupertino company will be able to make improvements to Apple Maps by capturing images of North Carolina using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and add more enhanced and detailed images.

    The drone testing program, launched by President Donald Trump last year, selected ten projects that it will offer waivers to for regulations that currently ban the use of drones in certain situations in the US.
