Apple sees iPhone sales drop again but beats forecasts

Apple has reported a second consecutive quarter of falling iPhone sales, but the 15% drop was not as bad as analysts had feared.
The US tech giant sold 40.4 million iPhones in its third quarter, slightly above forecasts of 40.02 million.
Apple chief executive Tim Cook said the results reflected "stronger customer demand... than we anticipated".
The firm said it expected sales to fall again in the fourth quarter to between $45.5bn (£34bn; €41.4bn) and $47.5bn.

Demand for Apple's flagship product has been slowing since the second quarter when the firm reported the first drop in iPhone sales since their 2007 launch.
The iPhone makes up for around two-thirds of Apple's sales and accounts for even more of its profits.
The slowdown in iPhone sales sent profit down 27% to $7.8bn in the three months to 25 June, while revenues fell 14.6% to $42.4bn.

iPhone 6 sales surged 35% in the second quarter last year

Apple's sales in Greater China - defined by the company as China, Hong Ko…

Zebilla SHS students sleep in 'toilet' dormitories

Students of Zebilla Senior High Technical School in the Bawku West District of the Upper East Region have no option but to use their washroom for accommodation.
Some of the students who are being housed in a six-seater toilet facility said the situation is so unbearable.
This came to light when members of the Public Interest and Accountability Committee (PIAC) together with a team of journalists from the Institute of Financial and Economic Journalists (IFEJ) visited the school to gain first-hand information about the use of oil money on some on-going projects.

A fire outbreak in 2014 destroyed the main boys’ dormitory of the Zebilla SHTS with a student population of about 1437, causing damage to books and personal belongings of some 400 students. This forced school authorities to relocate some of the students into classrooms and toilet facilities.
Currently, between 20 and 30 students share a room in these dormitories. But the students said the heat is always unbearable.
