September has been another busy month for the cell phone sector and keeping up to date with all the latest software and model releases can be difficult. Let us fill you in on all the latest news.
It’s been an interesting few weeks in the smartphone/tablet world. We have had the typical iOS security panic, and subsequent fix. Pokémon go has launched, caused chaos, and is now in decline.
New iPhones are imminent. The most reliable predictions suggest that Apple will officially announce the iPhone 7 during the first week of September, with a retail release following on Friday, September 16.
Mobile phones are often locked to the network that originally sold them. Networks do this in order to subsidise the costs of the mobile, allowing people to pay minimal or no upfront fees. However, as a result they activate the Network or SIM lock, restricting it to only working with SIM cards that connect to that network's signal.
Phone unlocking or network unlocking is the process of removing this lock, which then allows the cellphone to accept any compatible SIM card from anywhere around the world. Unlocking often requires the use of an unlock code, which is unique to each handset and found by using the handset's IMEI number.
