IPhone X Deal Caps Off Busy Week for Apple

With holiday shopping kicking off and the iPhone X finally on store shelves, the Apple universe is heating up.

Over the last several days, talk of potential new products and upgrades dominated Apple headlines. The reports suggest that Apple is considering bringing key iPhone X features, including its Face ID face scanner, to future iPads. The company is also rumored to be working on an augmented reality headset that would let users simultaneously interact with virtual objects, like apps, and the environment around the users.

And in a surprising move, one retailer has become the first to give away a gift card to people who buy a new iPhone X.

Get Data Sheet, Fortune‘s technology newsletter

So, let’s review the biggest headlines from Apple’s past week:

This is Fortune‘s latest weekly roundup of the biggest Apple news. Here’s last week’s roundup.

  1. Apple is working on an augmented reality headset, according to a Bloomberg report. The headset, which likely wouldn’t be released until 2020, would overlay virtual objects on the real world and allow users to interact with both worlds at the same time. In addition to the headset, Apple is also said to be building a new operating system that would power the headset.
  2. Another report this week said that Apple is considering bringing iPhone X design elements to next year’s updated iPad. If true, the tablet would come with the Face ID facial scanner featured in the iPhone X that verifies a person’s identity and gives him or her access to the smartphone’s software. The iPad might also get a design overhaul with a screen that nearly covers its face and leaves no room for the Touch ID fingerprint sensor. In a commentary this week, I argued that Face ID should be available on all Apple hardware, including iPads and Macs. Check it out.
  3. Interested in visiting Apple Park, the company’s new headquarters in Cuptertino, Calif.? Apple will open the its visitor center on Friday, which features an Apple Store, cafe, and a rooftop observation deck from which you can see the rest of Apple’s campus.
  4. In the three-month period ending Sept. 30, Apple shipped 13 million iPhone 7s worldwide, researcher Canalys announced based on its analysis of global smartphone shipments.Meanwhile, Apple shipped 6.3 million iPhone 8 Plus models and 5.4 million iPhone 8s. However, since the iPhone 8 line launched in mid-September, it was available for less than two weeks before the quarter ended.
  5. Apple acknowledged this week that some iPhone X displays may malfunction in cold temperatures. According to Apple, the iPhone X is designed to be used in temperatures between 32 degrees and 95 degrees. If the iPhone X is used outside of that range, its screen could turn off and its battery could lose some charge. When the iPhone X is returned to the standard temperature range, however, it resumes normal operation. Apple plans to release a software update at some point in the future to fix the problem.
  6. Apple this week released a software update to its mobile operating system iOS 11 to fix a bug that autocorrected the letter “i” with a symbol that appeared as “A[?].” Now when iPhone or iPad users type the letter i, the actual letter shows up.

One more thing…If you want to get some cash back on the iPhone X, Sam’s Club is offering a one-day sale today on Apple’s latest smartphone. If you buy the iPhone X at its full $ 999 price, Sam’s Club will give you a $ 250 in-store gift card and waive the $ 40 activation fee to get the smartphone running on your carrier network. The deal is available only in Sam’s Club locations and will expire after today.

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Season 2 To Begin Production Next Week

Showrunner Aaron Harberts has announced that the team will start work on Season 2 of Star Trek: Discovery when he returns to Los Angeles next week. He’s currently on a tour to promote the series, and was speaking at a special event in London where fans got to see a preview of Episode 8, look at props from the show and participate in a Q&A with the cast.

Harberts described how that work will begin.

“We look at these seasons as novels, and what’s beautiful about it [is that] we can sit down – [series creator] Alex Kurtzman, [executive producer/writer] Gretchen Berg, myself and [executive producer/director] Akiva Goldsman — we sit down and the first thing that the conversation is going to be about is what worked and what didn’t,” he said. “What did we love? What experiments did we do in terms of structure or styles of storytelling; what did we feel sort of sang the best? And, more importantly, what are the themes for Season 2?”

Harberts suggested the direction that Season 2 takes is still open, revealing that they’ll also be asking what it is they want to dig into next season.

“I can tell you this, Season 1 is the war novel and we won’t be doing another war novel,” he revealed. “And that’s fine; it served us very well for Season 1.”

Not Just Space Battles


Star Trek Discovery Lorca
Can we expect to see less warfare in Star Trek: Discovery Season 2?

They will also be trying to please the fans. “I feel like Star Trek fans — and science fiction fans — are looking for ‘What are you trying to say?’ ‘What is the deeper [meaning]?’ It’s not just about space battles.”

Harberts added, “It’ll be a big discussion and it’ll probably take at least two weeks to even think about what Season 2 in a macro sense will be.”

He also revealed that they’re still tweaking the Season 1 finale. “Actually, I spent the other day in my hotel room going through the cut of that — Episode 15. So that has taken so much brain power just to make sure we’re finishing this first season correctly,” he said.

For now, we can look forward to the upcoming midseason finale which airs in the US on November 12 and in the UK a day later.

Asteroid that barely missed Earth this week could wreak havoc in the not-so-distant future

asteroid TC4

The asteroid that came “damn close” to slamming into the Earth this week could cause utter devastation several decades down the road, and scientists can’t rule out an eventual collision. The rock, known as 2012 TC4, came within a cosmic hair of our planet just a couple of days ago, slipping by at a distance of just over 27,000 miles, but future safe passes are anything but certain.

TC4 came so close to Earth this time around that it was nearly within the orbit of many of our satellites, and just a fraction of the distance between Earth and the Moon. Based on current models forecasting its path, the rock will perform another near-miss in 2050, and we should be safe for that event, but its return in 2079 is giving scientists a reason to worry.

This Week in Women: Gun Violence, Abortion and Nuclear War

This Week in Women is part of a series produced in partnership between Ms. and the Fuller Project for International Reporting. This column is also part of a newsletter by Across Women’s Lives. Sign up and receive it regularly here.  

Audrey Penven / Creative Commons

As we’re all wrestling with “what now” following Sunday’s massacre in Las Vegas, several thoughtful pieces emerged this week looking at the role of women and gun violence. Jill Filipovic’s commentary in TIME is worth reading in its entirety to understand how fully absent women are from this problem, except as the victim:

Of 134 mass shooters who’ve preyed on Americans since 1966, just three have been women, making mass shooting a 98 percent male enterprise. More broadly, 90 percent of murderers are men—firearms are used in close to 70 percent of homicides.

America women are 11 times more likely to be killed by a firearm than women in any other developed nation, and this LA Times piece has a lot more on how stricter gun laws save women’s lives. Groups like @MomsDemand are growing in attention and membership. But the policy response to Las Vegas—to ban bump stocks—must disappoint. For example, 41 states still allow domestic violence offenders to keep guns they already have in their homes. Clearly we need more reporting on gun violence and women, like what we’re seeing from the investigative journalists at The Marshall Project, run by editor Bill Keller.

In other news this week, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, headed by Beatrice Fihn, was just awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their work promoting the banning of nuclear weapons. Women-led groups are also at the forefront of advocacy to keep the peace with North Korea. Meanwhile, Fortune Magazine noted that only .01 percent of Nobel prizes in physics have ever gone to women.

In Washington, a USA Today op-ed looked at the women, peace and security legislation that just passed Congress, and is heading to President Trump’s desk as soon as next week.

On U.S. women’s health this week, Trump today is trying to roll back federal requirements for employers to include birth control coverage in health insurance plans. Glamour penned an in-depth piece looking at the failing Republicans effort to legislate a 20 week abortion ban. And a Pennsylvania congressman who advocates for laws restricting women’s access to abortion was caught encouraging his mistress to have an abortion. Classic.

Christina Asquith is founder of The Fuller Project for International Reporting.
