One interesting artifact of Apple's pricier new iPhone models is that the company now covers more ground and includes more models than ever before. In addition to the iPhone 8 (starting at $699) and iPhone X (starting at $999), Apple is also still selling the following models:

  • iPhone SE starting at $349
  • iPhone 6s starting at $449
  • iPhone 6s Plus starting at $559
  • iPhone 7 starting at 549
  • iPhone 7 Plus starting at $669

Price hike: While the older phones are seeing some price drops, Apple actually raised prices on one device: The iPad Pro. Prices for that quietly went up by $50 on Tuesday. While price increases are rare in tech, they aren't unheard of. Increase in component costs are probably to blame.

Check out this video for a sneak peek at the iPhoneX.

Florida's health department on Tuesday reported 276 new coronavirus deaths, surpassing the state's record from July 31.

The big picture: The state also recorded over 5,800 new cases — on the low side for a state that is one of the domestic epicenters for the virus.

Facebook is rolling out a new policy that will prevent U.S. news publishers with "direct, meaningful ties" to political groups from claiming the news exemption within its political ads authorization process, executives tell Axios.

Why it matters: Since the 2016 election, reporters and researchers have uncovered over 1,200 instances in which political groups use websites disguised as local news outlets to push their point of view to Americans.
