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.

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.

Apple has launched a new repair program for a widely reported on iPhone 6 Plus hardware malfunction known as “touch disease,” which renders the touchscreen useless and manifests as a thin grey line at the top the display. According to Apple, however, this flaw is caused by dropping the phone repeatedly. The company says it will not cover the cost of a repair and will ask those affected by the issue to pay $149 to have it fixed. That might not sit too well with the iPhone owners who filed class action lawsuits against Apple over the touch disease issue.
