This might be good news for those who currently own an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6s -- the biggest wireless carrier in America has a new limited time promotional deal that promises to give two hundred bucks for specific iPhone 6 or iPhone 6s owners who decide to port their phone numbers to the Big Red’s network. Strictly speaking, the special offer is open to all customers who possess any iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, or iPhone 6s Plus in all memory size configurations.
It appears that Google is not the only tech giant having troubles in Russia. According to the country’s Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS), Apple is guilty of fixing the prices for specific editions of its iPhone 5 and iPhone 6 models at no less than 16 local retail partners. The iPhone maker is allegedly monitoring the pricing at these outlets and then requesting the retailers to increase the pricing if deemed not suitable.
T-Mobile has issued a statement advising its customers, especially those who own iPhone devices, to wait just a little bit before updating to iOS 10, the latest version of Apple’s iOS mobile operating system. The statement was actually a tweet by John Legere himself, the chief executive officer of the major US wireless carrier. The advisory was specifically targeted to mobile users who currently have an iPhone 6, an iPhone 6 Plus, or an iPhone SE unit.
In certain iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus units, the touch screens are found to have a defect, specifically becoming unresponsive, essentially rendering them inoperable. As a result, owners of these affected iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices are suing Apple, as reported by Reuters. As indicated in a proposed countrywide class action suit filed over the weekend, Apple has allegedly known of the touch screen issue, but has since done nothing to properly address the problem.
Users of iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus devices who notice a gray bar being displayed on their handsets should be worried -- it could spell serious issues for their smartphone. As reported by iFixIt and Forbes, there have been numerous cases of the same thing happening being reported in Apple support forums.
It appears that Apple is having some little iPhone troubles in big China. According to a report published by Bloomberg, the tech giant has been ordered by Chinese officials to halt the selling of its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices in Beijing, the capital city of the most populated country in the world.
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?
If you are a subscriber of AT&T and own an iPhone 6 device (or newer model), you can now make and take voice calls by way of Wi-Fi outside the country. Yup, the second biggest wireless carrier in the United States has started sending text messages to its subscribers just this week, basically notifying them that AT&T’s Wi-Fi calling feature has been expanded to territories outside the US. As updated in the official web page for AT&T’s Wi-Fi calling service, the feature can now be used in the Domestic Coverage Area (which includes the US, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands) as well as from most international regions.
The largest oil and gas company in the world has just deployed a new feature that makes full use of Apple Pay, as well as a credit, debit, or checking account stored on its Speedpass+ mobile app. Indeed, ExxonMobil has joined the list of corporations (albeit still limited) taking advantage of mobile payment systems, which empower consumers to pay for products or services using their mobile devices. As for Apple’s own contactless mode of payment, Apple Pay is now rolling out in more than 6,000 Exxon or Mobil branded gas stations across 46 states in America.
Verizon Wireless has announced that it will be offering Wi-Fi calling to its subscribers who own iPhone devices by way of Apple’s recent update to its iOS 9.3 mobile operating system. According to the Big Red, it had already started rolling out support for Wi-Fi calling in 2015 but only to mobile users who have Android powered handsets. This year, the biggest wireless carrier in the United States is looking to further expand its support for Wi-Fi calling to iOS users as well.
