Today United Airlines announced its intentions to distribute iPhone 6 Plus units to its more than 23,000 flight attendants sometime in the second quarter of next year. With the help of Apple's latest handsets, flight attendants will be able to access company e-mails and perform most onboard functions and thereby replace many separate items once needed to do the same job.
Back in March, United Airlines announced that it would be updating both its iOS app and fleet to allow travelers to view free movies and television shows while connected to its Wi-Fi network. Today, the app update went through to complete that process. Using United’s app, passengers will be able to view more than 150 movies and nearly 200 TV shows in the air when on planes that offer Wi-Fi access.
A big social media fail for one of Apple's bitterest rivals (hahaha) and some coming soon products from one of Apple's previous bitterest rivals. It's all about peace, love, understanding, and schadenfreude in this week's best of news stories. Plus, if you haven't updated your devices to iOS 7.1 what are you waiting for?
