The ever reliable 9to5Mac brings these new details and Apple iself is again the source with its new HomePad beta software revealing the iPhone 8 will not only skip Touch ID but look to replace it entirely with a commercially untested ‘Face ID’ facial recognition system for both logistics and pay. The hope will be Apple can succeed where others, notably Samsung, failed.

It’s hard to say when exactly the inflection point came. Was there was a single point in time that the devices in our pockets became computers first and phones as a distant second? Was it the original iPhone, released 10 years ago today? Perhaps it was the iPhone 3G, which added faster internet, or the iPhone 5, which supported LTE. Or maybe it was iPhone OS 2, which opened up the App Store for developers to create their own communication platforms outside of SMS and voice calls.

The iPhone 8 rumor machine has been running at a high gear, so much so that Apple CEO Tim Cook thinks it’s affecting current iPhone sales. Even though it doesn’t work and isn’t Apple’s final iPhone (we don’t even know where this mockup came from), the unofficial prototype gives us an idea of what the iPhone 8 could look like in real life, and not just in a rendering.

KrebsOnSecurity recently featured the story of a Brazilian man who was peppered with phishing attacks trying to steal his Apple iCloud username and password after his wife’s phone was stolen in a brazen daylight mugging.

Apple   has long faced a tricky balancing act when it comes to selling cheaper iPhones. With manufacturing costs for older and/or less advanced models likely in the $200 range or below, the company can easily sell such iPhones at lower price points while still turning a profit, and in doing so take share from mid-range Android rivals. But when a company is selling over 200 million phones annually at an average selling price (ASP) well north of $600, it’s hard to blame it for being cautious about how much it moves down-market, given the risk of potentially cannibalizing sales of pricier models.

Sales of the Apple Watch to consumers set a record during the first week of holiday shopping, and the current quarter is on track to be the best ever for the product, Apple Inc (AAPL.O) Chief Executive Tim Cook told Reuters.

Responding to an email from Reuters, Cook said the gadget’s sell-through – a measure of how many units are sold to consumers, rather than simply stocked on retailers’ shelves – reached a new high.

Cook’s comments followed a report on Monday from technology research firm IDC estimating that the tech giant sold 1.1 million units of the Apple Watch during the third quarter of 2016, down 71 percent from the year-ago quarter. The comments offer a glimpse of the gadget’s performance during the holiday quarter, which is typically Apple’s strongest.
