Apple changes name of "iPad WiFi + 4G" to "iPad WiFi + Cellular"





cellular

Following a string of complaints across the globe (especially in Australia and the United Kingdom) regarding Apple’s branding of the 4G-LTE compatible iPads, Apple has tweaked the name of their cellular-connecting iPad in some regions. The new name is simply “iPad WiFi + Cellular” and this is a shift from the former “iPad WiFi + 4G” branding. The source of the criticism of the 4G third-generation iPad models is the fact that the 4G LTE only functions in the U.S. and Canada, on a total of five carriers.

Apple did not simply make this iPad name change in the affected Australia and UK regions, but they changed it in the UK, Australia, the U.S., Canada, UAE, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, New Zealand, Malaysia, Ireland, and Hong Kong.

iphone4spr

Analyst Gene Munster with Piper Jaffray expects that Apple plans to launch its sixth-generation iPhone before October of this year and with LTE 4G connectivity. Last year's iPhone 4S launch was uncharacteristic for Apple, which had previously introduced new handsets at its Worldwide Developers Conference in June.

"It is more likely the phone launches in October given Qualcomm commentary around 28nm chip supply," he said. "We believe Apple will include LTE in the iPhone 5 as an important feature in the product update."

ipad_australia_ultrafast_wireless

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, Australian regulators are taking legal actions to address Apple’s “misleading” advertisements regarding the iPad 3. Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) announced that in this case it will pursue fines, injunctions and compensation to users who were misled. The issue was caused by Apple’s use of "4G" in its advertising campaign for the cellular-capable models of the iPad 3, while compatibility with 4G LTE is only offered in Canada and U.S. due to different frequency bands used for LTE networks in different countries.

Apple says new iPad operates 'well within our thermal specifications'



ipad_3_hand

On Tuesday Apple officially commented claims that the new iPad is running warmer that its predecessor.

"The new iPad delivers a stunning Retina display, A5X chip, support for 4G LTE plus 10 hours of battery life, all while operating well within our thermal specifications, Apple spokeswoman Trudy Miller said in a statement to The Loop. "If customers have any concerns, they should contact AppleCare."

Apple’s response came only couple hours after the publication of an infrared test that revealed the new iPad runs 10 degrees (Fahrenheit) hotter than the previous-generation iPad 2. The temperatures of the new iPad, however, remain well within Apple's specified operating temperature of 32 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit, or 0 to 35 degrees Celsius.

Teardown of new 1080p Apple TV finds cooler single-core A5 CPU



appletv-2

On Monday iFixit also get their hand on the recently released Apple TV. Having disassembled the device, the team found that this version of Apple’s set-top box does not have a thermal pad, suggesting it runs even cooler than its predecessor.

Even though it apparently runs cooler, the new CPU is more capable and allows users to output 1080p high-definition video content. The device still has the same power supply, though, providing 3.4V at 1.57A.

An earlier disassembly of the new Apple TV discovered that the updated set-top box features the same 8 gigabytes of storage as its predecessor. Monday's latest peek inside the Apple TV also found two antennae inside the device. The addition is presumed to boost signal strength in the latest Apple TV.
