Personnel from the Royal Bahamas Police Force remove a body recovered in a destroyed neighborhood in the wake of Hurricane Dorian in Marsh Harbour, Great Abaco, Bahamas, September 9, 2019. Some 1,300 people are listed as missing in the Bahamas more than a week after Dorian pummeled the Caribbean island chain, although that number may include evacuees who fled to shelters, authorities said. Bahamian Prime Minister Hubert Minnis told the nation in a televised address that the death toll from Dorian remained at 50, but conceded that the large number of people missing meant that number would rise.

CEO Tim Cook presents the new iPhone 11 Pro at an Apple event at their headquarters in Cupertino, California, September 10, 2019. Apple caught up with hardware rivals by revealing a triple-camera iPhone 11 Pro, with three cameras on the back - wide angle, telephoto and ultra-wide - and the next generation of microchips, the A13. During the iPhone 11 Pro launch, executives spent more time talking its processor than the specs of the newly added lens. A special portion of that chip called the "neural engine," which is reserved for artificial intelligence tasks, aims to help the iPhone take better, sharper pictures in challenging lighting situations.
