This week continued the onslaught of iPhone 8 leaks. A set of images emerged claiming to show the device with rear Touch ID, though some expressed doubt as to the legitimacy of the images. We also learned more about the iPhone 8 dimensions, which show the device as a middle ground between the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

Ahead of WWDC 2017 next week, we broke down everything we expect Apple to unveil, including iOS 11, new MacBooks, the oft-rumored Siri Speaker, and a new 10.5-inch iPad Pro. Apple has started decorating the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose ahead of the event, which kicks off Monday morning at 10AM with Apple’s keynote address.

Meanwhile, we went hands-on with Logitech’s latest MX Master products, new camera app Halide, a custom-made Apple Watch strap, and more.
