Egyptian Cabinet will complete reviewing a draft of a new investment law and send it to the parliament by mid-November at maximum, Prime Minister Sherif Ismail said Friday. The long-awaited new law, which has been in the works for six months, is expected to focus on the diversification of incentives and guarantees for investors. “We have already started reviewing the draft and will send it to the parliament next month. We will be done with it by mid-November at maximum.” Ismail said. The government approved an investment law in March 2015 that aimed to bolster investor confidence, eliminate bureaucracy, ease the procedures to obtain licences for projects and attract foreign investment. It later amended the law in December.

Apple is investigating a report from an Australian man who claimed his iPhone 7 caught fire and destroyed his car, the company revealed Friday. Surfer Mat Jones told Channel 7 News that he had gone into water off a New South Wales beach and left his new iPhone 7, bought last week, wrapped in a pair of trousers in his car on the beach. He said that when he returned from the water he saw smoke billowing out from the car. “As I looked into my car you could not see inside the car, like all the windows were just black.” Footage taken from another phone showed the front seats, dashboard and stick melted and charred, and Jones said that he felt “pretty much just like a big heat wave just came out of the car”.
