Earlier this year, T-Mobile purchased the 600 MHz spectrum in an FCC auction which it confirmed would use for 5G network rollout in 2019. Until then though, the company will be using the spectrum to improve its network in rural parts of the US.
iPhone 8 Release Date, News and Rumors
Most years, ever since the original iPhone launched, supply for new iPhones on a yearly basis is pretty constrained, with shipping dates slipping back to weeks after the initial pre-order period ends.
The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus go on sale on Friday, September 22. Pre-orders went live last week. But it looks like anticipation for the flagship model may be taming those pre-orders.
The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are set to launch at carriers in the United States (and in some other countries) on Friday, September 22.
Ahead of the September 22nd launch date for the iPhone 8, Apple Watch Series 3, and the 4K Apple TV, Apple has started shipping out pre-orders of customers who placed their orders on September 15.
With its 2017 iPhone lineup, Apple has finally gotten around to adding Qi wireless charging support to them. While not truly wireless, Qi wireless charging is the closest we can come to experiencing wireless charging on a device right now. It is also the most popular wireless charging standard out there with plenty of flagship Android devices supporting it.
Apple has finally included supported for FLAC audio playback with the new iPhone 8 and the iPhone X, along with the Apple TV 4K. The feature will also make its way to the iPhone 7 lineup after the iOS 11 update as reflected by the product pages of these devices. The support doesn’t extend to older devices like the iPhone 6s or the iPhone SE however, which could be due to hardware limitations.
iPhone shipping estimates have traditionally slipped to a few weeks within minutes of pre-orders going live. This time around though, things seem to be different. Likely due to low demand thanks to the iPhone X and robust supply, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus shipping estimates have taken longer to slip than usual.
As scheduled, Apple has now started accepting pre-orders for the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, 4K Apple TV, and Apple Watch Series 3 through its online store and Apple Store app. The pre-orders have only gone live in the US for now, with the new iPhones going up for pre-order throughout the day in other markets of the world.
When buying a new iPhone, it’s usually the sticker price that we’re the most concerned with. While it might not seem like an important distinction, picking the wrong storage tier can lead to frustration couple of months down the line. And because iPhones don’t have expandable storage, you’re left to deal with storage issues on you own.
