iOS 6 has yet to even be released and already, AT&T is finding the update controversial with its plans to only allow FaceTime over cellular connections from the carrier's new Mobile Share data plans, which launch on Thursday.
If you're looking forward to FaceTime with your loved ones over a cellular connection when iOS 6 arrives this fall, you might want to switch up your data plan this week if you're an AT&T customer -- it's going to be a requirement.
So how about that YouTube app? With Apple confirming that YouTube isn't being invited to the iOS 6 party, it certainly appears Cupertino is working hard to ditch as much of Google as humanly possible from its mobile OS. Thankfully, iOS 5 seems as if it will be safe, so if you've got an older device or no plans to upgrade right away, you can keep 'Tubin' the same way you have been. Meanwhile, here's what else is making headlines for this Monday, August 6, 2012.
Are you ready for summer travel? If your destination is anywhere outside the United States and you plan to bring along your trusty iPhone, you’ll want to read on to find out how to save a bundle by using local wireless service, no matter where on the map you’ll be heading.
Even as Nokia fights to have its products on display at U.S. partner AT&T, rumors are surfacing that we'll finally see the first Windows Phone 8 handsets from the Finnish manufacturer at next month's Nokia World.
Apple controls its own destiny with the iPhone, a brutal reality that clearly must chafe at its carrier partners. But would a once-exclusive partner actually go so far as to instruct its salespeople to sell other smartphones over Cupertino's handset?
We'll have to wait just a bit to see Apple's own quarterly results on Tuesday afternoon, but there's plenty to look forward to if AT&T's own Q2 2012 results are any indication, with the onetime exclusive carrier activating 3.7 million iPhones during the quarter.
It's pretty much all Dark Knight Rises wherever you go and sure, we've got some of that love for you too. But that's not the only hot property going around the internet. There's always something Apple, always something in the water. So take a peek at what's under the cover including Steam's huge Summer Sale, some bad news for a handset maker, and something curious going on with Office 2013.
An error message discovered in iOS 6 Beta 3 has put a damper on one of the operating system's new features, which is the ability to make FaceTime video calls over a cellular data network. While AT&T and Verizon seem to be mulling how much to charge customers for such a privilege, as usual Sprint has no such issue.
It's not much of a surprise, especially now that rival Verizon Wireless has already introduced their own service, but AT&T has finally made good on its promise to introduce shared data plans -- and won't be forcing current customers to use them if they don't want to.
