Apple's broader iPhone lineup

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.

D.C.'s March for our Lives event is expected to see more than half a million participants.

Why it matters: While D.C. is the primary march, there are hundreds of others around the world and across the country. Led by students, the march is "to demand that a comprehensive and effective bill be immediately brought before Congress to address" gun issues, per the organization's mission statement.

The Justice Department is in "a preliminary stage" of discussions about requiring tech companies building "tools into smartphones and other devices" that would allow law enforcement investigators to access encrypted data, the New York Times reports.

Why it matters: This has been on the FBI's mind since 2010, and last month the White House "circulated a memo...outlining ways to think about solving the problem," officials told the NYT. Both FBI Director Christopher Wray, and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, support finding ways for law enforcement to access data without compromising devices security.
