Verizon confirms $30 unlimited data plan for iPhone

Verizon has confirmed that its version of the iPhone will have another feature no longer offered on AT&T’s model: an unlimited data plan. Lowell McAdam, Verizon’s chief operating officer, told The Wall Street Journal that his company will offer the data plan for $30 per month with no data restrictions.

“I’m not going to shoot myself in the foot,” McAdam told the Journal, referring to Verizon’s decision to offer the unlimited data plan. AT&T, Verizon’s soon-to-be iPhone competitor,  stopped offering an unlimited data plan option last year — although existing customers were able to retain their unlimited data plans.

It’s already known that Verizon’s iPhone will support wireless tethering for up to five devices. AT&T currently only offers tethering capability for an additional $20 monthly fee.

AT&T’s iPhone has an advantage in that it can perform voice and data functions simultaneously. Verizon’s iPhone only can perform one function at a time.

The iPhone 4 can’t come soon enough for Verizon. The company announced today revenue figures that left Wall Street underwhelmed. Verizon will launch the iPhone 4 on February 11.

Let’s be clear, Apple — it’s time to make a transparent iPhone
Deep Purple iPhone 14 Pro with Beats Studio Buds+ in Transparent

Apple has released a new product that's gotten a lot of attention because of an awesome new color option. No, it’s not an iPhone, iPad, or even an Apple Watch. Heck, it’s not even the AirPods Pro 2. So, what am I talking about?

Apple acquired Beats by Dre in 2014, and this week, Beats dropped the new Beats Studio Buds+, which are pretty similar to the AirPods Pro 2, but cost less dough. And they come in one of the coolest colors I’ve seen in a long time: transparent.
