World’s best iPhone manufacturer, Apple, has announced to release Apple Watch with built-in LTE this year. This integration will enable Apple Watch owners to use the gadget even when they leave their iPhone at home- outside the range of its coverage. A lot of speculations regarding the product have surfaced. For example, Apple could choose to sell models of the watch with and without LTE, charging a premium for cellular service.
This watch is most likely to require an extra data plan as well. The gadget will probably still need to be paired with an iPhone on some level, even if the phone isn`t always in the same vicinity.
WhatsApp willing to get Facebook-like coloured Status
WhatsApp is testing the same colourful text statuses for its Status tab that Facebook rolled out last year. According to a report, the feature is a part of WhatsApp beta version 2.17.291. Users who’ve enrolled into WhatsApp’s official Play Store beta program should get access to new colourful statuses earlier than everyone else. The report notes that this is probably a server-side test, which means the feature might not necessarily be available for all even if they’re on the latest version of the app.
