Next week on September 18th, iOS 7 will be pushed to iPhone, iPad and iPod users worldwide–featuring a brand new look, feel, native apps, and numerous new features including updated Maps, sharing, a retooled Photos app, and much more. The announcement came from Apple’s media event in Cupertino where they are expected to announce the next generation iPhone(s).
Apple’s annual September media event is underway at the company’s Cupertino campus. On stage now, CEO Tim Cook is reviewing the company’s milestones as we await new product announcements in the form of an iPhone or two. The topic of conversation begins with the iTunes Festival and how it is accessible to tens of millions worldwide on iOS devices and is free to all.
Hot on the heels of the confirmation of an Apple event next week comes small updates to iPhoto, iMovie and GarageBand for iOS; addressing minor performance and compatibility issues, the updates are said to be related to Apple’s upcoming iOS 7 operating system. The latest versions of all three apps are available for purchase in the iTunes App Store for $4.99 each, or as a free update for existing owners.
It’s rare that you’ll find an iPhone case that looks cozy enough to rest your head on–but that’s exactly how ADOPTED’s Cushion Wrap Case looks. Using the same metallized frame as their successful Leather Wrap Case, the Cushion Wrap uses soft-grip silicone panels to achieve that “upholstered” look, and those panels are for more than just show–they also promise to give your iPhone 5 excellent protection as well. The case comes in 9 different colors and is available at getadopted.com for $49.95. To learn more about ADOPTED and their line of accessories, click past the jump for the full PR.

T-Mobile is now accepting pre-orders for the iPhone 5. After all this time, T-Mobile will finally be getting the iPhone (officially) on their network come the 12th of April, and those looking to skip the line can get their pre-orders in now. To refresh your memory, the device will cost you a $99 down payment (for the 16GB version) and then $20 per month for 24 months; after the 24 months has past, not only do you own your iPhone 5 outright, you’re also entitled to a reduced monthly payment on your plan.
With T-Mobile iPhone 5 coming on April 12th, some new news is here about what you can find and where. The company will only be stocking retail stores with 16GB versions of the deice, while online you can order the 32 or 64GB variations. The 16GB will run you $20 a month for 24 months with a $99 down payment, but that number will increase $100 per model for the 32GB and 64GB models, $199 and $299 respectively.
They teased us before the new year, but now its official: Come April 12th T-Mobile will be officially carrying the iPhone. In an attempt to set themselves apart from their competitors, the company has also announced new customer-friendly rate plans allowing people to purchase a 16GB iPhone 5 with $100 downpayment, and then only $20 a month for 24 months thereafter. When payments are finished, customers bills will drop by $20, making it a clear and easy way to own an iPhone 5 on their network. Of course you’ll be able to bring your own device to the carrier to put on their base rate plan of $50 per month for unlimited talk, text and 3G data, plus 500MB of 4G data. Customers can add on 2GB of 4G data for another $10/month per line, or just $20 for unlimited 4G. For more on these new plans, you can head to T-Mobile’s press site by clicking here.
While I can’t speak for everyone, but my first stop when connecting to any new internet connection or mobile data network is to check how fast it is–and my port of call for that is always Speedtest. Whether I’m using the website or their excellent iOS app, it’s always great at determining exactly how good or (when I’m up an Italian mountain) awful my connection is. Now they’ve updated said excellent iOS app to include iPhone 5 screen support and a redesigned interface; you can also now choose to do away with the adverts in the app with a $0.99 in-app purchase.
The new Speedtest app can be downloaded as an upgrade from the iOS app store or from right here.
