AT&T iPhone Lock Causes a New Lawsuit against Apple

There is a new lawsuit filed against Apple in October. This time, however, it’s not Samsung that sues its “evil” competitor in the market of smartphones and tablet computers. This time the case is run by two iPhone customers.

Their names are Thomas Buchar and Zach Ward and they own iPhones. Last Friday these two men filed a lawsuit against Apple over AT&T iPhone lock. The putative class action lawsuit claims that the tech giant violates two acts [Digital Millennium Copyright and Sherman Antitrust] since the company didn’t obtain consumers’ permission to lock the iOS smartphones to the U.S. mobile carrier’s network.

The Lawsuit Statements

When Apple launched its first iPhone back in 2007, it got a 5-year agreement with AT&T to install software locks on these handsets. Of course, the company didn’t ask customers whether they wished to have their iOS smartphones locked to AT&T or not. Such an action violates the prohibition on monopolization of the Sherman Act, Thomas Buchar and Zach Ward believe, since first users who purchased the iPhone couldn’t officially use other wireless carriers in the USA.

Smartphone users are allowed to modify the gadgets they own for use on any wireless network they like, according to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. But Apple limited this choice in 2007 and violated another document.

A lot of customers get frustrated by getting iPhone IMEI locked to carriers. Still, similar lawsuits failed in the past. We’ll see how the court will react to the new attempt of owners to prove that the Cupertino-based company has violated the law and get monetary compensation.

Apple Unlock AT&T iPhone

While iPhone users think that the prices for smartphone data services increased because of Apple locking its gadgets to particular mobile carriers, you can still unlock AT&T iPhone using cheap service. This service is now possible and you can have your Apple unlock AT&T iPhone performed by the carrier itself. If you wish to find a cheaper service, you can search for vendors who offer the same service.

In case Thomas Buchar and Zach Ward succeed in the courtroom, Apple will have to unlock iOS 6 on AT&T iPhone and other handsets on request. At least, this is one of many things the two men are seeking.

iTunes 11 Update is Ready! Download it Now!

Today will be an official Apple event which is expected to release iPad mini tablet together with updated iMac, Mac mini and 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display. But compact tablet and new Macs will not be the only topic of today’s event, there will be presented updated iTunes and you can download iTunes 11 for Windows and Mac. As it became known, today Apple celebrates 12th birthday of the release of iTunes first version.

For the first time the company mentioned iTunes 11 on September 12, when iPhone 5 was presented. Appearance of the program as a whole resembles the musical version of the application for the iPad. After you download new iTunes you will see that it has a tight integration with the iCloud service and thus is more efficient.

Interface of the new iTunes 11 greatly simplified, and the design of the program is described as “light” and “sweet.” Now it will be easier to view the album: when you click on the cover a special section opens with a list of songs, duration and ratings.

Recall now Apple may also introduce a 13-inch MacBook Pro laptop with a Retina display. The unit will receive the same slim body as 15-inch sibling and a price tag is gonna be 1699 bucks. 13-inch version will display 2560 x 1600 pixels in comparison with 1280 by 800 for a normal MacBook Pro with the same diagonal.

The next generation of iMac can also be debuting along with the iPad mini and iTunes 11. Unlike laptops, desktop computers reportedly will not receive Retina display. And it is expected that the 21.5-inch iMac will start first, which, according to observers, due to difficulties in production of large screens.

As talking about iTunes update I can tell you that it is another way to improve its functionality. When you download iTunes 11 you won’t see some special changes but you will definitely feel better functional and performance. So use direct links to download updated iTunes version 11.

Note: If you are gonna to use IMEI unlocking service you need to download iTunes 11 for completing unlock process without any issues.
