Facebook increasing ad transparency, iPhone X repairs look priceyThe most important stories in tech include an effort by Facebook to clearly identify ads ahead of an upcoming US election. Meanwhile, Apple outlines prices for iPhone X fixes -- and they are expensive.
This is CNET and here are the stories that matter right now. Facebook wants you to know when you're seeing an ad ahead of midterm elections in the US. Political ads will need to be verified and will be identified as political with a clickable flag. That will enable the user to see information about that politician as well as ads they are currently running. Facebook says it will begin building an archive of federal election related ads, which will also be searchable. Google will now automatically detect where you are and offer search results based on location instead of the URL you entered. A quick way that people would search for information related to other countries was by going to something like google.com.br to get Brazilian results regardless of where they were. If you want to get results outside of your current location, you can go into settings to select another country. Getting an Apple iPhone X on launch day won't be easy if pre orders are any indication. If you're picking up X on day one, you might want to know Apple will charge $279 To replace an iPhone X screen if you damage it by accident. If you want Apple to repair your iPhone X for damage other than the screen, it will cost a whopping $549. This may drive sales of AppleCare+, which costs about $200. AppleCare+ covers accidental damage to the screen and other parts of the phone. [MUSIC] Stand today with the latest by downloading the CNET tech today app available for iOS and Android
