Apple Starts Selling DJI Phantom Drones for the First Time in Canada, US

Apple has started selling DJI drones in its online store in the US and Canada. As first noticed by MarketWatch, the Apple Store now lists the “Phantom 3” line of drones, created by SZ DJI Technology Co., commonly known as DJI.

The drones aren’t in brick-and-mortar Apple Stores yet. We’ve called retail stores in Canada, which noted that nothing has hit the shelves — yet — but a quick search on Apple’s Canadian website (click on the “accessories” tab) reveals that there are two DJI Phantom 3 Camera Drone models for sale: a professional and an “advanced” model.

The DJI Phantom 3 Professional Camera Drone costs $1,639.95, while the cheaper DJI Phantom 3 Advanced Camera Drone costs $1,299.95. The drones are capable of shooting 4K videos at up to 30 frames per second and capturing 12-megapixel photos from a maximum altitude of 6,000 metres above sea level, and they have up to 23 minutes of flight time.
