T-Mobile introduces new next-gen coverage map w/ customer...

Today, 03:56 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News

t-mobile_s-4g-network-check-your-coverag

T-Mobile has today unveiled what it hopes will be the next-generation of network maps, breathing new life into the carrier coverage maps of old. T-Mobile says that its new “Next-Gen Network Map” is the industry’s first crowd-sourced map, and reflects “near real-time customer experiences.”

img.php?z=1288305&k=0d0633b70e3c2bda246a

“It’s our nature to expose and eradicate broken wireless industry norms,” T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray said in the company’s blog post announcing the new coverage map. Not only does the new map bring in customer-verified coverage data for sections as small as 100 square meters, but T-Mobile is also bringing in information from third-parties like Speedtest.net, Inrix and others, to verify that this data is accurate and complete.

The new data is based on 200 million actual customer usage data points, and will be updated every two weeks—and T-Mobile says this compares to data from other carriers that could be months or years old. There have been far better technologies available “for some time now,” the company says, and this map will be the first to take advantage of them.

Features of our new coverage map include:

  • Customer-verified coverage based on actual customer usage, resulting in a vastly more transparent and accurate map, showing, for example, exactly where you can expect 4G LTE, 4G, 3G or other levels of coverage.
  • A Verified Coverage icon indicating where the majority of data is provided by T-Mobile customers reporting their actual network experience, providing an added layer of confidence.
  • Data that’s updated twice monthly − compared to data presented on the carriers’ maps, which is already dated by the time it’s printed and published and may be months or even years old.
  • Speed test data from trusted third party apps showing average download speeds from customer speed tests over the last 90 days.

To see the new map in action, head over to T-Mobile’s website. You’ll see that as you zoom in that there are hexagons with little check marks inside them—this means that these blocks are using the new real-time customer verified data.

Leaked Images Provide First Look at Purported Rear Shell...

Today, 03:21 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
Chinese parts supplier Future Supplier (via Nowhereelse.fr) has posted leaked images of what it believes could be the rear shell for the so-called "iPhone 6c." The rear housing looks similar to the plastic iPhone 5c, with two notable differences being a pill-shaped LED flash cutout and two rows of speaker grilles on the bottom of the smartphone. The size of the rear shell indicates that the device's screen size could fall within the 4-inch range.

The pill-shaped LED flash design and two rows of speaker grilles are also found on the iPhone 5s, indicating that the iPhone 6c could have the same internals as the two-generations-old smartphone with a plastic shell. The smartphone would likely be positioned at the low end of the iPhone lineup as Apple's free smartphone, alongside the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and next-generation iPhones released later this year.

Apple did not refresh the iPhone 5c when it launched the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus last year, leading to speculation that the plastic smartphone might be discontinued from the smartphone lineup.mf.gif

Claimed ‘iPhone 6C’ rear shell leaks, lends further crede...

Today, 03:16 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News

Some new photos posted by Future Supplier claim to show the leaked rear casing to the rumored “iPhone 6C.” Recent reports have said that the device will sport a 4-inch screen like that of the iPhone 5, 5C, and 5S, allowing it to appeal to those who prefer smaller displays over the larger iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

While the veracity of these shots has not been confirmed, there are some interesting details to note that could give us some more clues about the design of the rumored device.

img.php?z=1288305&k=0d0633b70e3c2bda246a

In the image above, there are a few notable differences between the purported iPhone 6C and the iPhone 5C provided for comparison. The cutout for the camera flash on the 6C is elongated, unlike the round one found on the iPhone 5C and current iPhone models. The elongated shape goes back to the introduction of the True Tone flash in the iPhone 5S.

There are also changes to the cutout for the camera itself. Unlike the iPhone 6, the supposed 6c does not feature a “camera bump.” The opening for the lens seems to be flush with the rest of the shell. Additional changes can be noted by looking at the device from another angle.

iphone-6c-rear-housing-2.jpg?w=704&h=528

Image via Future Supplier

On the bottom of the handset, there are changes to how the mic and speaker grilles are designed. On the current iPhone 6, there are six speaker holes on the left side of the Lightning connector (when the phone is face down), and one microphone opening next to the headphone jack.

On the 5C, there were only four speaker holes, but the design is otherwise the same.

The new photos of the supposed 6C, however, show eight speaker holes arranged in two rows on what looks to be a noticeably thicker body that is found on the iPhone 6. The microphone has also gained a few extra openings, with six cutouts now situated next to the headphone jack rather than just one. Like the speaker grilled, those circular cutouts are stacked in two rows.

It’s hard to say whether these images are real or fake just yet. While some of the changes seem to be a step backwards for Apple, like the seemingly thicker design and elongated camera flash, the redesigned audio grilles and the removal of the “camera bump” could indicate that it’s actually a step forward. It’s also entirely possible that this is simply one design Apple is considering, or an entirely fake shell.

Rumors of multiple next-gen iPhone models in varying sizes have been swirling for a while now, with some indicating that the 6S will receive Apple’s new Force Touch technology and be available in the color pink—though it doesn’t seem likely that the above photos are any indication of what that might look like on the higher-grade device.

Apple Watch Recreated in 800-Brick Nanoblock Sculpture [i...

Today, 02:29 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
With just under a month until the April 24 launch date of the Apple Watch, internationally renowned Nanoblock artist Christopher Tan has re-created the Apple Watch in block form in anticipation of the wearable's release next month.

IMG_2940-800x800.jpg
As Tan notes, the sculpture is a 2.6x scale model of the 42mm Apple Watch created from over 800 pieces of Nanoblock, which is a popular building block product in Japan, akin to LEGO. Tan says he's "been a long-time Apple fan" and is "eagerly anticipating the Apple Watch."

IMG_2945-800x800.jpg
Tan has been creating Apple-related Nanoblock structures for a while now, last year debuting a 2,000-piece structure of the Fifth Avenue Apple Store, complete with the iconic glass cube entrance and descending spiral staircase. Tan's creations have earned him spreads in magazines and even award recognition in the Nanoblock company's own spotlight of the best creations and creators using the product.

Check out the rest of Tan's Nanoblock creations on his blog.mf.gif

Apple needn’t fear over-regulation of Apple Watch health...

Today, 02:22 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News

watch-healthkit.png?w=704&h=302

While health tech has to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration, the agency will be taking “an almost hands-off approach” to fitness-oriented wearables like the Apple Watch, says policy advisor Bakul Patel in an interview in Bloomberg.

“We are taking a very light touch, an almost hands-off approach,” Patel, the FDA’s associate director for digital health, said in an interview. “If you have technology that’s going to motivate a person to stay healthy, that’s not something we want to be engaged in.”

Patel said the FDA would be drawing a distinction between products whose health claims focused on fitness rather than diagnosis … 

img.php?z=1288305&k=0d0633b70e3c2bda246a

Claims which centered on diagnosis of health conditions would face greater scrutiny. The FDA’s primary role there would be to ensure that companies weren’t claiming more than they delivered.

“A lot depends on how the device is marketed, Patel said. If a company is promoting a product to assist doctors in making medical decisions, it will require more oversight, he said.”

If devices like the Apple Watch do prove capable of diagnosing disease, the FDA doesn’t have an issue with that, said Patel: it simply wants to be sure that any claims made are accurate.

We have to be confident in what we are getting. The trajectory is there and all signals are headed that way, but by the same token the research and science should get us that confidence. It boils down to will it work or not.

The FDA wants Apple to play a role in screening health-related claims made by apps, and the company has already held discussions with the agency, he said.

Apple has been talking-up the health and fitness capabilities of the watch and iPhone, providing a look inside its gym-style testing-lab and discussing the potential of ResearchKit to help find cures for diseases. Stanford University recently shared that ResearchKit allowed it to sign-up 11,000 participants in a medical study in just 24 hours–something that would normally take 50 medical centers a year. It has also been suggested that ResearchKit could provide a massive open-source database of anonymized medical data which could be made available to medical researchers all around the world.

We learned quite a few new things yesterday about Apple’s plans for selling the Apple Watch including business pricing/financing details, with Mark Gurman providing a run-through of the complete customer experience when visiting a store to try out the watch, perks for Apple Watch Edition customers, and virtual online try-ons and setups for gold and steel Apple Watch customers.
