AT&T raises LTE throttling threshold for unlimited customers to 22GB

By Cody Lee on Sep 16, 2015

AT&T on Wednesday updated its website with a minor but noteworthy change to its throttling policy. The carrier says it will no longer throttle subscribers on grandfathered unlimited data plans in congested areas until they surpass 22GB of data in a single bill cycle.

The move represents a significant change from AT&T’s previous stance on throttling, which was to start slowing down unlimited data plan customers in high-traffic areas after just 5GB of usage, and it probably has something to do with the FCC’s $100 million fine. Read More

How to request desktop website on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad with Safari on iOS 9

By Christian Zibreg on Sep 16, 2015

Don’t you hate it when visiting a website in Safari on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad takes you to a crippled mobile version rather than the full desktop experience? Thankfully, iOS 9 has made it a cinch to load up desktop versions of websites you deserve.

The ability to request the desktop version of any website has long been available in Google’s Chrome browser for iOS. iOS 8 has conveniently brought this time-saving feature to Safari last year.

Still, a lot of folks are oblivious to its existence as Apple appears to have gone to great lengths to burry that feature deep inside Safari’s interface. Thankfully, iOS 9 makes it a lot easier to load up a desktop version of any website on an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. As this tutorial attests, it is now dead simple to skip those skimpy mobile websites and go straight to their full desktop versions. Read More

Poll: are you planning on buying iPad Pro?

By Christian Zibreg on Sep 15, 2015

Apple’s new iPad Pro with its epic 12.9-inch display, super smooth performance courtesy of Apple’s third-generation 64-bit ‘A9X’ microchip, four speaker audio, enhanced multitouch technology with lag-free Apple Pencil performance—to name but a few of its headline features—doesn’t file as the most attractive, powerful iOS device but also the priciest yet.

Starting at $799 for the entry level Wi-Fi-only 32 GB model and going all the way up to a whopping $1,079 for the flagship Wi-Fi + Cellular edition with 128 GB of storage, the iPad Pro will essentially compete with Apple’s own MacBook Air and Microsoft’s Surface Pro tablet with a similar price level.
