A vocal MacLife.com reader took us to task on Wednesday for reporting a well-sourced rumor about UI changes that may be coming with iOS 7, which is believed to be behind schedule as well. That got us thinking about coverage of Apple rumors here, which we tend to shy away from in all but the most high-profile cases that are backed up with reliable sources. (Not always possible, but we try!) So we'll throw it out to the readers: Want a rumor or two here and there with your news coverage, or should we stick to the basics and leave the wild speculation up to sites dedicated to such coverage? Make your voice heard in the comments, folks!
There are still plenty of little details coming out about the iPhone 5 arriving on T-Mobile next month -- in particular, you'll want to read our Wednesday recap if you're looking to buy a higher-capacity model before you head to a T-Mo retail store on April 12. But we'll kick things off with a neat Flickr gallery that jumps back nearly 17 years, to that fateful night when Steve Jobs came back to then-Apple Computer...
Apple made the dreams of many iPhone users come true on Tuesday with the announcement of the iPhone 5 coming to T-Mobile USA on April 12, and the carrier is even making it cheaper to get one as part of its new "UNcarrier" initiative. But even if you could care less about T-Mobile's new iPhone, there was plenty of other stuff to talk about yesterday, and here's a quick recap to get you up to speed...
T-Mobile will finally offer the iPhone -- officially -- next month. The carrier is the last major U.S. network to finally offer Apple's smartphones, but today's announcement is more than another product being added to a company's stable. Instead, T-Mobile will sell the iPhone 5 under a unique payment system.
T-Mobile is holding its event tomorrow, but details are already leaking out all over the place. While there's been some mention of the company's new "UNcarrier" pricing plans, a source now says T-Mobile will finally offer the iPhone directly, instead of requiring unlocked models. And moreover, your T-Mobile iPhone can take advantage of a 4G LTE network starting tomorrow.
No, you won't get stabbed for missing out on these hot news stories from the Ides of March. Still, don't go missing any more of 'em if you want to stay healthy, know what we're saying? We're saying, you could miss out and feel sick about it. What'd you think we were saying?
iPhone 5 cases were a bit on the scarce side right at launch, but now they're multiplying faster than tribbles. We're going to review every case we get our hands on, and we'll keep this gallery updated as we do. From simple silicon skins to rugged drop-proof tanks to blinged-out jewel-encrusted cases, we've got 'em all.
Newer Technology's NuGuard KX has been drop-tested according to military specifications. There's even a video on the company's website of a NuGuard-clad iPhone being dropped by some sadistic-looking robot thing, and emerging unscathed. The one-piece case snaps on, and is made of "hyper-advanced X-Orbing gel."
