Apple walked away from deal with Uber for same-day deliveries

Updated

Apple considered using Uber’s fledgling delivery service in select cities, but instead made a deal with start-up courier Postmates for same-say deliveries, The Wall Street Journal reports. Uber has twice the number of drivers as delivery giant UPS, but the company’s delivery service has stalled, with some customers complaining about Uber’s inability to insure high-priced items. Uber says it is committed to making deliveries, but is still in the early phases of testing new approaches to using its existing infrastructure.
