Yup, you read that headline right. Dish, the satellite TV provider, has just launched a new service that offers to fix Apple iPhone devices, and the really cool thing about this is that those availing of the service will never need to get out of their homes. Granted, this latest move from a company primarily known for satellite TV services is a bit odd, but why not, right?
Earlier this week, Apple had begun rolling out its iOS 9.3, the newest iteration of its iOS mobile operating system. But just days after its deployment, there were reports circulating that the iOS 9.3 update was causing problems to older models of iPad tablet devices, especially during the installation process.
Yup, you read that headline right. It was first reported by 9to5Mac, but a spokesperson from Apple has since officially verified that the tech giant is indeed now starting to accept trade ins for damaged iPhones. The company’s Apple Store Reuse and Recycle iPhone trade in program has always allowed iOS users to trade in their older iPhone models in exchange for store credit. The deal was previously only applicable if the user’s existing iPhone device was in good working condition, and with no cracked display screens or other defects.
As indicated by a report published by 9to5Mac, Apple could be preparing to officially announce a new 4 inch iPhone device in March of this year (echoing another earlier forecast). Over the years, 9to5Mac has established quite a reputation for being one of the first to report on the latest Apple related developments. This time around, the tech blog is saying that a new iPhone device, called the iPhone 5SE, could be unveiled about a couple of months from now.
Phablets, or smartphones with large display screens, are all the rage during the past few months, with Apple launching its two newest iPhone models (the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus) which clearly belong to this category. But there may be Apple fans who prefer having an iPhone that is a bit more “handy” than the latest versions. Well, some time next year, they could see their wish come true.
Things just got even more interesting in the iPhone 6s price wars. Sprint just recently introduced a new special offer wherein subscribers who decide to trade in their current iPhone 6 devices can get a 16 gigabyte edition of Apple's new iPhone 6s by paying only $1 each month, or a 16 gigabyte edition of the new iPhone 6s Plus for just $5 each month.
According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, Apple is asking its suppliers to manufacture up 90 million units of its two upcoming newest iPhone models, the successors to the current iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices. In the previous year, the tech giant had only asked its suppliers to initially produce between 70 million to 80 million units of the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus.
Having difficulties making calls because your iPhone's signal is not strong enough? Sprint has some good news for you. The US major wireless carrier has officially started deploying Wi-Fi calling capabilities to four of its iPhone models, namely the iPhone 5C, the iPhone 5S, the iPhone 6, and the iPhone 6 Plus.
