NEW YORK -

An unexpected sales twist for Apple as the company's older iPhone 7 models are outselling the recently launched iPhone 8, according to the New York Post.

General Motors is getting ready to test self-driving Chevy Bolts in a five mile area of lower Manhattan that is still being mapped out.

According to the Wall Street Journal, a safety operator will be at the wheel of each car to take over if something goes wrong.
