Digitimes reported on Tuesday that Apple will allegedly release a trio of OLED-based iPhones next year that will measure in at 5.42-, 6.06-, and 6.67-inches, a range that spans wider than the company's current flagship devices. Digitimes sources further stated that the 5.42-inch model will come with either Samsung's Y-Octa or LG's TOE touch technology, both of which could provide the phone with a thinner display.

President Xi Jinping called upon New Zealand on Monday not to discriminate against Chinese companies during a meeting with Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, whose country has rejected a bid by Chinese telecom giant Huawei to build a 5G mobile network. Ardern, on a one-day visit to China, said before meeting Xi that she hoped to have a dialog with Beijing about New Zealand's intelligence agency's decision to reject the bid.

Pope Francis on Sunday warned Catholics in Morocco against trying to convert others to boost their small numbers, during a rare visit by a pontiff to the North African country. Speaking in Rabat's cathedral on his second day in the Moroccan capital, Francis insisted trying to convert people to one's own belief "always leads to an impasse". "Please, no proselytism!" he told an audience of around 400, who greeted the pope's arrival by ululating and applauding, while hundreds more gathered outside the cathedral. Christians are a tiny minority in Morocco where 99 percent of the population is Muslim, with sub-Saharan Africans making up a large part of the country's...
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's ruling party is leading in Sunday's municipal elections that he has depicted as a fight for Turkey's survival, and which are seen as a crucial test of the strongman's own support amid a sharp economic downturn.

According to the early results, the main opposition party has 31 per cent of the vote. The voting was marred by scattered election violence that killed at least two people and injured dozens of others across Turkey. Unofficial final results were expected...

Hundreds of mostly Muslim mourners gathered at a cemetery in the southern city of Christchurch to lay to rest Khalid Mustafa and his 15-year-old son Hamza, who were among 50 people slaughtered at two mosques by an Australian white supremacist. The family of five had fled to New Zealand seeking sanctuary from the Syrian maelstrom but died in last Friday's hail of bullets, a bitter irony that New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern called "gutting".
