LTE reference uncovered in general iOS 5 development builds

0. phoneArena 22 Aug 2011, 09:07 posted on

After the report that an iPhone with LTE reference in the iOS code is being tested by a carrier, and the tip that AT&T is installing LTE equipment in an Apple Store, comes the realization that this LTE mention is actually present in all recent development builds of iOS...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

as soon as iOS 6 comes out with widgets you will say apple invented it, and should sue google for daring to using it 5 years before them.. or you will have widgets and go "OMG now i see what those smart android people were talking about".. lol

well, more than likely at least the first part of that statement will happen.. lol

Don't worry when iOS 5 is finally rolled out they will say they invented the notification system, that Android copied them. Apple probably has a patent for that! lol

iOS will NOT die, pretty much no matter what... Just like I do not think android will die no matter what.

iOS has a market penetration large enough to almost require people to continue with iOS. From purchased apps, books, music etc...

Even if the Apple marketing wears off (like with Nike from the 90s) they will still be a market presence.

Google is sort of in the same boat, except they have less product that is wholly dependent on Google services (aka books, is a big one) and Android dependency.

My thoughts are that while Apple may come out with an LTE version in a year, where will the Android devices be at that time. One step ahead of LTE is what I'm thinking, based on what it's been up to now.
As for the part of the article that talks about the Thunderbolt and the cost of LTE radios for phones, the Andriod LTE phones are still competitive with the iDiotPhones and why, that makes a difference I don't know.

LTE is going to be the standard for years to come. It's upgradable to 1 gigabit per second speeds.


There is no one step ahead of LTE and won't be for a while. You're the typical uneducated android user. High school diploma or less.

Yeah... show your intelligence by name calling. If you are so smart you would know that my statements go to the fact that Apple is trailing of the rest of a market in the technology of a product. And rather then trying to play catch up the great ones are putting out smoke and mirrors to hide the fact that they are behind the curve and aren't trying to get ahead, they are just trying to convince those truly not tech saavy that their product is ahead of others.
BTW you are wrong on your guess of my educational background.

You contradict yourself by calling the iPhone an idiotphone thereby insulting all iPhone users first of all.

2nd iPhone is not behind. There's only a total of 3 LTE phones in the US right now. There's new android phones coming out all the time that are 3G. Are those phones outdated too?

the iphone is behind on features, tech, OS sales, data speeds, phone size/price options.. and everything.

The only thing it is ahead on is profit per device and iSheep worship.

when the iPhone came out in 2010 it wasn't behind on any of that and still very competitive with new phones coming out now.


You're just a hater androne and jealous because you see all the satisfied iphone user while you're stuck with a half baked OS and crappy hardware.

lol, taco your an iDiot. (havent reminded you in a few days)

My galaxyS and your iphone4 (if thats what you actually have) have the EXACT same SAMSUNG hardware.. oh yea, except I have the bigger screen.. thinner.. lighter.. capable up to 48gigs of memory, better daytime viewing, better battery life, true multitasking, better notifications, widgets, your favorite live backgrounds that noone uses, OTA syncing of all my information, music, contacts, calandar, updates, pictures, and every other feature that iOS5 is trying to pretend its inventing... im not stuck overpaying on ATT or VZW, its faster than an iphone on either network..., and no my software is extremely stable. It may not be samsung factory software but who gives a damn. :)

i know u love ur iphone, but its so far behind you cant see the competition infront of you.... thats why u THINK your ahead somehow.. lol.

and except for the music sync and automated picasa sync (it was manual before) android has had all those features for quite a while. and thats not even a full list of what you dont have. :)

better battery? you just lost all credibility with that statement. You listed contacts and calendar as features? Really?


Lol you're pathetic. You're stuck on android and T-Mobile which is a double whammy.

calendar and contact AUTO SYNC and backup. You still have no reading comprehension do ya? lol

great example. I just updated my calendar on my computer with all the coming stuff for this semester.. within a second it was already on every phone and tablet I own without wires. Try that on your iphone. Same with my music, pictures, contacts, settings, and a half dozen other things.
all automatic, seamless, and wireless.

if you think that paying half the price for VZW and ATT while getting faster service than ATT and VZW is a double whammy, then its no wonder your such an iDiot.

And yea, i can get nearly 3 days out of my smartphone with mild use and a day and a half with heavy use. Woopsie.. hate to dispel your android myths.

"i can get nearly 3 days out of my smartphone with mild use ".. exactly... mild... you have a galaxy S phone capable of doing amazxing things.. and you used it mild??? is like bragging that they have a Corvette and use for grocery shopping...

if you have a corvette you dont drive it at 130mph every day of the week.. sometimes you only use it to get to the grocery store.

is this like customizing? lol.. you really are losing it gallito and becoming a notorious iDiot on taco's level. just saying.. lol

Some days i use it for everything from netflix to games and recording video.. some days i use it for the occasional text and playing wordfeud. (remixfa on wordfeud if u think u can take me :) )

you cant tell me u use your jesus phone for the exact same thing at the same time every day of the week... and if u cant, then this argument like the customization argument hold no water what so ever.

i will request you on wf... look I am giving you my point of views.. and tyou are giving me yours... thats all.. i am not being un real... but you are by tell me that T-mobile is the best network.. i dont demand much from my phone.. I am not a techie thats why specs mean nothing to me... but around here I am learning..jejejeje.. but stil dont customise.. maybe because i dont know how or dont want to.. but i dont.. so i defend that point...no trying to be a jackass.. it comes naturally ..lol..

What smoke and mirrors lol. Lte advance runs at 1 gig a second. That is going to be the best avaliable for at least ten years. When the iphone has lte it will be comparable to android data speeds. Maube lag behind in processor but not lte. Anyway i expect an a6 which is quad core for the ip6.

first of all I all thsi 4G talk and in reality is not 4g ... 24 mbits, and I dont know of any phone here in the US that gets half of that... second, verizon which is the bigest LTE supplier only has 3 phones with 4G so, and none of them have broken any sales record, that tells you that we dont want 4g until they get it right, and not drain battery.. I dont care if my phone can go into the internet at blazing speeds, if I cant call my babysitter after work because i have no battery....

Tmobile phones right now are capable of 21mb/s, the websticks are capable of 42mb/s, and when the Hercules launches, they will have a phone capable of 42mb/s. Faster than anything else out right now. :)

Thats 4g baby :)

First off, I'm not calling the users of the iPhone idiots. The phones design is to simplify the technology so that even the most basic of users can have advanced technology. That was what I clearly stated in my post when I first let everyone here know I would further refer to the iPhone to the iDiotPhone.

Secondly, I never used the word "outdated" but if you want to know my opinion, yes any phone that comes out without LTE now, is behind the curve. That is because LTE is the most current and fastest data system and those phones that don't make use of LTE are behind the times.

Lastly, not everyone who drives a Rolls Royce, Bentley, or Monarch could fix it or diagnose a problem, does that make them uneducated. You may well be educated but from reading your posts you lack common sense.

android is very simple. its called "set it up". once you spend 5 minutes doing that, the phone runs itself. Maybe having "options" scare you.. but if u use said options u will be much happier.

my comments were not for you .. but since you mention it you are wrong... 4 g is in progress. or since you are a techie.. let me use the phrase,... still loading... ok..verizon has 3 phone in 4g, 3 phones for the biggest carrier that has the best 4g coverage?? please tell me friend that you are joking, .. so if you want to be the guinea pig and try the 1st gen 4g phone .. be my guest, I will wait until is proven as for me my phone is very important to be playing aroung like that...
