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.
Comcast is apparently teaming up with Apple as it makes preparations to soon debut its mobile service. There is talk that the upcoming wireless offering will be launched under the Xfinity Mobile brand name. It turns out that Comcast’s name has been added to non-visible code that lists the carrier bundles for the iPhone. This list of carrier bundles is utilized by iPhones and even iTunes in checking if an Apple smartphone’s SIM card is supported by a service provider with whom the iPhone maker has an existing contract.
Apple is now deploying iOS 10.3 -- the latest update to its iOS mobile operating system -- to iPhone and iPad tablet devices. As expected, this new roll out will come with a number of enhancements. Interestingly, the tech giant has decided to utilize the iOS 10.3 update as a means for swapping the iPhone’s and iPad’s underlying file system from the previous HFS+ file format to the new Apple File System. In other words, the company is basically upgrading how its devices are saving and managing data.
T-Mobile has recently decided to include AppleCare in its device insurance plans (which normally cost $12 per month), absolutely free of charge. According to the number three wireless carrier in the United States, customers who choose to purchase a new iPhone device or an iPad tablet will now be covered under AppleCare if they also opt to sign up for the mobile operator’s Jump! or Premium Device Protection options (more on these two later).
This should be good news to those who like using smaller iPhone devices -- Apple has decided to boost the storage capacity of the iPhone SE, and then bid farewell to the 16 gigabyte edition of the model. Thus, the iPhone SE will now be made available in either 32 gigabyte or 128 gigabyte options, replacing the previous 16 gigabyte and 64 gigabyte editions.
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.
Last week, it has been reported that T-Mobile was selling some of its flagship smartphone devices at a blowout sale price. This move was largely speculated as a way for the carrier to clear out their shelves in time for the release of new smartphone models. In recent developments, it looks like this could actually be happening.
According to a report recently published by South Korean publication The Bell, Apple is apparently considering putting OLED display screens on all of its iPhone models by 2019.
