The U.S. Air Force Looks To Advanced Manufacturing To Keep Existing Aircraft Flying And Develop Next-Gen Capabilities

What if there were Olympic events that weren’t physical, but were focused instead on completely geeking out on super-cool breakthrough technologies for real-world aerospace and defense challenges? Even better, what if they offered prize money totaling nearly a million dollars?

Now there are just such events, thanks to the U.S. Air Force’s Rapid Sustainment Office (RSO). In fact, participants in five such Olympic “sports” (or Technical Challenges, as the RSO calls them) have already been competing over the past few months.

Apple Event: iPhone 12 Expected With 5G Capabilities

Apple Inc.

AAPL -1.13%

later Tuesday is expected to reveal its latest iPhone, a device capable of connecting to a much faster 5G cellular network, which investors are betting will spur strong demand.

The latest smartphone arrives five years after iPhone unit sales peaked. Chief Executive Tim Cook has pushed the company to sell more-expensive versions of the device and rely on software services and wearable devices, such as smartwatches and headphones, to boost revenue.

Unlike in past years, Apple is holding its iPhone event without journalists, partners and employees in an auditorium, opting instead because of Covid-19 for a virtual event slated to begin at 1 p.m. New York time, similar to one last month for the company’s latest smartwatches and other updates. The event can be viewed on the company’s website.

The iPhone 12 is hotly anticipated by investors who have driven up the company’s shares 69% in
