Apple iPhone - For Apple's Q3 earnings, it's all about the next iPhone: The June quarter is typically Apple's smallest of the year. But Wall Street will be looking for hints about the next crop of iPhones.

When it comes to Apple's third-quarter earnings report Tuesday, the only thing that really matters is what it says about the next iPhone.
And while Apple doesn't give many -- or really, any -- details about its next iPhone during earnings calls, it gives small hints. CEO Tim Cook occasionally will make comments like Apple's expecting an "exciting fall," but that's as verbose as he gets. Still, financial analysts read the tea leaves to estimate how many devices Apple thinks it can sell in its September quarter, which usually includes the first week or two of new iPhone sales.
That means that when it comes to the fiscal third quarter, which covers the three months ended in June, Apple gets a pass. It's Apple's smallest in terms of contributing to annual sales. By the time the period ends in June, Apple's newest iPhones are already nine months old. Case in point: the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were introduced in September 2017.

World's Longest Bridges | 25 Longest Bridges In The World

Saratov BridgeTrying to determine the longest bridge in the world is no easy task. In the past several years there have been numerous “measurement wars” fought over the length of Earth’s longest bridges. The primary reason for this is that it’s hard to define what exactly constitutes a bridge. Does it have to be over water? Are elevated road ways bridges? What if only part of the bridge is over water? Although these are legitimate questions if you are competing for a Guinness World Record, for our purposes we will not discriminate against any particular type of bridge. So with that said, these are the 25 longest bridges in the world.

Great barrier reefThe World's Largest Coral Reefs - The Earth's Ten Largest Coral Reefs

A coral reef is a submerged structure made up of many different corals, or small marine invertebrates. These corals are unable to move and cluster with other corals to form colonies. These colonies then secrete calcium carbonate that causes them to bind together to form the reef. Each of these individual animals is also covered with a hard exoskeleton which makes coral reefs appear very strong and rock-like.

Coral reefs vary in size, type, and location around the world but they are very sensitive to water properties like temperature and chemical composition. Nearly all of the world’s coral reefs, particularly the largest reefs, are in the tropics.

World's Smallest Ocean - Geography of the World's Oceans

An ocean is a large body of water that is saline. Oceans are a major component of the Earth's hydrosphere and cover 71% of the Earth's surface. Although the oceans of the Earth are all connected and are truly one "World Ocean," most often the world is divided into five different oceans.

The following list is arranged by size.

The Pacific Ocean is by far the world's largest ocean at 60,060,700 square miles (155,557,000 sq km). According to the CIA World Factbook, it covers 28% of the Earth and is equal in size to nearly all of the land area on the Earth. The Pacific Ocean is located between the Southern Ocean, Asia and Australia and the Western Hemisphere. It has an average depth of 13,215 feet (4,028 m) but its deepest point is the Challenger Deep within Mariana Trench near Japan. This area is also the deepest point in the world at -35,840 feet (-10,924 m). The Pacific Ocean is important to geography not only because of its size but it has been a major historical route of exploration and migration.
