If AT&T was sweating over losing their iPhone exclusivity back in January, they can rest easy now. According to their first-quarter financials, the carrier sold 5.5 million smartphones -- and 60 percent of them were from Apple.
After years of rumors about the iPhone landing on Verizon Wireless, when the announcement finally came in January, the actual launch of the iPhone 4 on the carrier seemed anti-climactic -- but fear not, the real excitement will come with the next model.
Did you know the Verizon iPhone is lighter than the AT&T iPhone? How about that one uses an oscillating vibrator and the other uses a rotational motor? Obviously they have different antennas, but what does that mean for the “death grip”?
We waited years for the Verizon iPhone. We poured over rumor after rumor, and now it’s finally out…but there’s a catch: the iPhone 5 will probably hit stores in early summer. Both carriers will surely get it, and that leads to lots of questions. Before you give your hard-earned money and trust to a carrier, there’s an awful lot you need to know about their plans, their coverage, and your future phone.
It’s been relatively quiet on the Verizon iPhone 4 front regarding sales figures, but that isn’t stopping the analysts from chiming in with some thoughts of their own -- such as this one, claiming that Verizon’s fast new 4G HTC ThunderBolt is outselling the iPhone 4.
Apple greeted the final week of March with an announcement that the 2011 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will take over Moscone West in San Francisco from June 6-10, with developer tickets selling out the same day at $1,599 each. At the same time, pundits began spreading the doom and gloom that there would be no June iPhone refresh this year… but is it fact or fiction?
Take this one with a grain of salt, but a new report claims that Apple may slip out a modest iOS 4.3.1 update in the next two weeks, mostly to squash a few bugs -- and probably squash jailbreak attempts as well.
While AT&T hasn’t had much to say about the iPhone 4’s new Personal Hotspot feature since it was unveiled in January with the Verizon model, the company has finally broken its silence and confirmed that the feature will indeed work with next week’s iOS 4.3 update.
We got our hands on a Verizon iPhone this week, boy did we, and we put it through its paces, but good. And that's not all that happened this week and you know what else we did? Yes, you do. We rounded up all the news you're just dying to know about just in case you missed it.
According to an IHS iSuppli teardown, the CDMA iPhone 4 costs less to manufacture than the previous version of the iPhone 4, despite utilizing more futuristic internals. The total cost of materials to Apple? $178.45.
In case you didn’t hear, a new iPhone was released this week, and you know what that means: Crowds of people clamoring to get Apple’s latest and greatest. Except in Verizon’s case, for the most part the crowds failed to materialize.
