Apple wants its suppliers to produce 85 million to 90 million iPhones by the end of 2015, in order to meet demand and increase sales. The tech company ordered 70 million to 80 million phones last year, and already has sold more than 61 million iPhones during the first quarter.

The California drought has sparked new interest in recycling drilling wastewater with major oil companies looking to treat the water used to frack their oil and natural gas wells and sell it to farms.

Honda announced another recall related to defective Takata airbags. A total of 1.63 million Fit compacts and CR-V vehicles are being recalled in Japan.

UPS is testing a new way to deliver packages in Switzerland: via an electronically supported cargo bike. UPS believes the compact bike is ideal for inner-city deliveries.
