The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) released an announcement today that debunked a report made in August. According to the FCC, smartphone models manufactured by Apple and Samsung did not violate their rules on the maximum exposure levels of radio frequency.
Today’s report tackles the report made by The Chicago Tribune, which suggested that certain iPhone models emitted radio frequency radiation that went beyond the safety limits implemented by the government agency. The publication conducted an investigation through an accredited lab that it hired. Together, they tested a number of devices, including iPhone models. The investigation showed that these devices violated the federal guidelines.
Earlier this week, Apple unveiled its three latest iPhone models under the iPhone 11 brand: the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max. Now that these devices have been revealed, their pre-orders are scheduled to go live tomorrow, September 13th. After that, the devices will be released next Friday, September 20th.
If you are interested in getting your hands on one of these devices, a great idea is to take advantage of the introductory deals or discounts being offered by third-party retailers and carriers. Here is a short run through of what’s in store with your iPhone 11 purchase, along with the pre-order/release date:
Two months ago, Apple confirmed that it would be participating in WWDC 2019. Now, it looks like Apple finally has a date set for its upcoming conference.
Earlier today, Apple sent out invitations for its WWDC 2019 keynote address. The much anticipated event is set to take place on Monday, June 3 at 10:00 am PT. This is also the same time when the WWDC 2019 event will happen at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, CA. The whole event runs from June 3rd to the 7th.
The good news is that Apple will be streaming the conference via its website so those without an invitation can still take part in the excitement.
For a while now, Apple has been running hard-to-miss deals on the iPhone SE. Today, Apple added refurbished iPhone X models to the mix and selling these at a huge discount.
For a limited time period, you can get your hands on an iPhone X at a cheaper price. The 64GB variant is currently available at $769 instead of $999. Meanwhile, the 256GB variant is available at $899 instead of $1,149.
A few days ago, users discovered a bug that affected the privacy of those who used FaceTime to make calls.
According to the report, the FaceTime bug allowed iPhone users to start a group video chat and hear the audio coming from the person they are calling. The surprising thing about this can be done even before the user decides to accept the call. What this meant was that iPhone users were able to secretly hear the private conversations of those they were calling via FaceTime.
Foldable phones are no longer just an imaginary thing. For starters, Samsung has been said to be working on a flexible Galaxy device; which they intend to launch real soon. A representative for Samsung has unveiled that the company could be launching the device during the first quarter of 2019.. After all, a prototype of the device was quickly shown during the last Samsung Developer Conference held in November.
It looks like Samsung is not the only one who intends to launch a foldable device in 2019. Huawei has since been rumored to work on a similar technology as the ones determined for the phone.
Today, Apple announced its updates and new releases, including the iPad Pro, Apple TV, and iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Here are the details from this highly anticipated event:
The event at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium started off with an update about the Apple Watch. The Apple Watch will now come in gold and rose gold, and there are new sports bands options to choose from. Apple also announced the release of a wrap-around Hermes band, available for all fashionistas in October.
It turns out iTunes users can live with or without U2 in their accounts. After receiving complaints from customers who can definitely do away with the Irish band's automatically downloaded album, Apple is helping users remove U2 from their iTunes accounts.
A couple of hospitals in the United States are set to hold medical trials with patients of diabetes and chronic diseases using Apple's HealthKit.
HealthKit is a healthcare system that is being developed by Apple. The iPhone maker is envisioning HealthKit as an important tool for collecting health- or fitness-related information, primarily through the use of iPhone apps together with medical and fitness monitoring devices.
In spite of some hitches -- the US Apple Online store was down until 3 AM Pacific Time and reportedly there were issues encountered when pre-ordering via the Apple Store app -- Apple has set a new record for iPhone orders when it opened the pre-order period for the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus last night.
