It's a given that Android is always going to have the latest and greatest hardware technology that pushes boundaries. At the same time, Android will also have all the issues that come along with bleeding edge technology, in this case with LTE, terrible battery life. It's not bad per say, but just because Android is first doesn't make it inherently better. 14. squallz506 (banned) (Posts: 1075; Member since: 19 Oct 2011) the argument will end when apple stops taking credit for everything. 26. hobble (Posts: 130; Member since: 11 Oct 2011) Terrible battery life you say?

Switching iphone sim cards
There is no denying that Apple is definitely making their products unique to all others – especially now more than ever with the introduction of the micro SIM card. GSM phone owners worldwide who've been accustomed to using their friendly sized SIM cards will have to forgo their little friends in favor of the relatively unused micro SIM cards in order to use either the iPad or upcoming next generation iPhone. AT&T stores have started receiving these small bundle of joys in time for the Apple iPad 3G launch and looks to be basically your ordinary sized SIM card with perforations to outline the micro SIM card. Unfortunately there are literally zero devices outside Apple's pride and joys that rely on using this nontraditional standard, but when it comes to anything Apple, consumers will have to cave in and switch in order to experience all the wonders of these two Apple products.source: BGR & Engadget … [Read more...] about AT&T readies its micro SIM cards for the iPad & iPhone
According to a source who reportedly has been accurate in the past, the next-generation Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus will both be stuffed with 2GB of RAM. Apple has employed 1GB of RAM for its handsets ever since the launch of the Apple iPhone 5. Earlier that year, it had placed 1GB of RAM in the third-generation Apple iPad, up from the 512MB of RAM used in the Apple iPad 2, heralding the change in the iPhone later that year.We have seen something similar with the Apple iPad Air 2, which was launched with 2GB of RAM last year, up from the 1GB of RAM used on the Apple iPad Air. The additional short-term memory would improve multi-tasking capabilities, but could also consume some additional battery life.The source also says that the Apple SIM card seen on the Wi-Fi + Cellular Apple iPad Air 2 will also be included out of the box on the new iPhone 6s models. With the pre-installed Apple SIM card, iPad Air 2 users can select a number of short term plans from AT&T, T-Mobile … [Read more...] about Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus will both feature 2GB of RAM and the Apple SIM card?
Although T-Mobile isn't getting the iPhone 5, that doesn't mean it would stop people from using their unlocked iPhone on its network, despite instructing its employees to sell against it. Just days ago, the carrier announced its "Bring your own iPhone" deal for any customer who wants to take advantage of T-Mobile's data plans. "But wait, the iPhone 5 uses Nano SIM cards, doesn't it?" you say. Well, T-Mobile has that covered. Or at least it will in the near future, as a leaked spy shot indicates that Nano SIM cards are headed to T-Mobile for use with unlocked iPhone 5 smartphones. The carrier will have them in stock at some time next month.We cannot overlook the fact, however, that using an unlocked iPhone 5 on T-Mobile would be a pricey investment. That is because one needs to buy the smartphone at its retail price, which starts at $650 for the 16GB model. But in the long run, switching might be worth it. For $70 per month, subscribers get 5GB of data, along with unlimited nationwide … [Read more...] about iPhone 5 Nano SIM cards headed to T-Mobile

So you just got a brand new iPhone... what do you do first?Well, plug in your SIM card, of course. It's a simple task, but if you're switching from an old phone, you might not be used to the new nano SIM card format or the SIM tray where you have to insert that SIM card.First, you'd need to make sure that you have the right size SIM card. Since you need the smallest, nano-sized SIM card you can go to a carrier store where customer reps will cut it for you, or you can do it yourself following our simple step-by-step guide here.Once you have the right size SIM card, you need a SIM ejector tool (a paperclip or a safety pin would do as well). With all those tools at hand, you're ready to get started. Follow the steps below to change or insert a new SIM card in your iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (you use the same technique to insert a SIM card in the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, iPhone SE and earlier iPhones).

Switching SIM cards every time you travel abroad or switch carriers can be a real hassle. Apple seems to have come up with a solution to this problem with the iPad Air 2. In the section about the device’s wireless connectivity, Apple mentions a SIM card called Apple SIM that can work on several different LTE networks in the U.S. and the U.K., including AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and EE.Apparently, the Apple SIM is built into the LTE-version of the iPad Air 2, so anyone who buys the tablet will be able to change LTE networks right on their iPad. That means you won’t have to go to T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint, or EE to pick up a dedicated SIM card that only works on that specific carrier’s network. You wont have to swap SIM cards every time you take a trip or change carriers either.Previously, if you wanted to switch LTE networks, you had to go to the store, sign up, get the SIM, take the old SIM out, and replace it with the new one. All that hassle disappears with the … [Read more...] about Apple’s new iPads let you switch LTE networks without changing your SIM card

There has been an assortment of news concerning iOS updates, jailbreaks and carrier hacks recently. To make sense of it all, you have to put yourself in the other people's shoes. Personally, sandals are preferred, so allow me to flop around.Apple's new iPhone 5, expected out June of 2011, won't have one piece of gear that's common in other phones: a subscriber identity module (SIM) card.This was big news for several phone carriers, particularly in the UK and Europe, who worried that SIM cards would give users more versatility and provide a medium for SIM-based applications and features. There is a long list of digital equipment that utilizes this technology already.If it integrates SIM card technology into the iPhone 5, Apple would be limiting the power of the carriers, essentially telling them their relationship is not all that needed for promotion, anyway.On the other end of the spectrum, the latest release of the iPhone operating system (iOS 4.2.1) took the iPhone Dev Team about 24 … [Read more...] about OPINION The Inevitability of the Apple SIM Card
