Sony has announced a more powerful version of its PlayStation 4 console at an event in New York City.
The PS4 Pro will be able to render games with ultra high definition 4K graphics.
A cosmetically redesigned, slimmer PlayStation 4 was also announced and will become the standard device.
Some canny vendors have been quick of the mark to get cases for the new iPhone 7 onto the market...
The iPhone 7 will not have a traditional headphone socket, Apple has confirmed.
The US company unveiled its latest handset at an event in San Francisco.
The device also lets the home button detect how firmly it is being pressed and provide vibration-based feedback, and adds a two-lens camera to the Plus model's rear.
The 3.5mm headphone jack was made popular by Sony's Walkman cassette players, but was first introduced in one of the Japanese company's transistor radios in 1964.
Critics of Ireland's tax regime are drawing outdated and unfair caricatures, the Republic's Finance Minister Michael Noonan has said.
The Irish parliament has been recalled early to debate the European Commission's ruling that the country granted undue tax benefits of up to €13bn (£11bn) to Apple.
It follows the decision by the Irish government to appeal against the ruling.
Mr Noonan said Apple had not been shown favouritism.
The FTSE 100 index was up by 20.53, or 0.3%, at 6846.58 at close in London.
