'Apple hasn't updated the carrier settings to enable LTE.'
They certainly did in Switzerland for a carrier who seemingly played cat and mouse with Apple..
Almost looks like they blacklist commercial reasons until an agreement is met.
" Certainly not a watch!"
No, but is it a coincidence that this came about near the time of the shareholders voting?
Newpapers love to sell stories so maybe this 'iBangle' was all a bit concocted.
Saying that the Google glasses onslaught might soon mean retro is now cool.
Maybe Apple has it right, though the whole non monopoly thing maybe relies too much on a very high priced iPhone to dampen demand.
Otherwise Apple would have troubles like Microsoft had on the past?
It maybe gets far more tricky as Apple competes on price.
surely any new Apple SOC will be based on a Samsung design.
I do not really see this happening as is. Apple are more likely to use a Mediatek or Qualcomm design with TSMC or Intel doing the silicon run.
