Today's topics include T-mobile reportedly unveiling a free video streaming service, Apple’s iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 4 are now available to T-Mobile customers, Google updated Android for Work, and the FAA has released the names of its Drone Task Force members.

T-Mobile is expected to announce the next big thing for their customers on Nov. 10 in Los Angeles at its Un-carrier X event.

T-Mobile itself hasn't given any hints or details about what is to come, but well-known news tipster Evan Blass, whose Twitter name is @evleaks, wrote in an Oct. 29 post on Twitter that T-Mobile is poised to announce a free unlimited video streaming capability for customers.

This is similar to what the carrier already began offering following its Music Freedom Un-carrier 6 event in June 2014.

Apple's latest iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 4 tablets are now available to T-Mobile customers through monthly lease payments on Jump On Demand mobile plans.

T-Mobile announced the availability of the devices on Oct. 28. The Jump On Demand plans let customers switch their mobile devices as many as three times a year, while also allowing customers to pick up many new devices with absolutely no money down.

Google has added a new option in Android for Work that the company said will make it easier for enterprises to set up and manage corporate-issued mobile devices running the new Android 6.0 Marshmallow release.

The new device set-up option is available via the Admin console in Android for Work. The option prompts employees who attempt to add a work account to a new device to confirm if the device is corporate-issued.

Once device ownership is confirmed, a policy-management app is automatically installed and completes the steps needed to provision the device securely and set it up based on the user's work account.

The drone task force that the Federal Aviation Administration put together to make recommendations for creating drone registration rules in the United States has named its members, which include representatives from Google, Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart and a wide range of aviation and other groups.

According to an Oct. 29 announcement from the FAA, the Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Registration Task Force is being co-chaired by Earl Lawrence, director of the FAA's UAS Integration Office, and Dave Vos of Google X.

The task force members are charged with having a set of recommendations ready by Nov. 20, including requirements for drone registration, which would go into effect by mid-December 2015.
