Tim Cook guidelines out Apple being a cellular provider, stating it lacks the knowledge

Included in an meeting at Startup Holiday Europe in Amsterdam nowadays, Tim Cook has eliminated the chance of Apple being a cellular provider or MVNO (Cellular Online Network User).

Apple was documented to possess been trialling an MVNO support – where the organization might piggy back onto current systems but have its personalisation & charges – in July of this past year. The organization rapidly released a refusal that it’d any ideas to do this, but Cook has nowadays removed more in his response to a problem by retired American Commissioner for Electronic Plan Neelie Kroes.

Your knowledge doesn’t increase towards the network. We’ve caused AT&T in america, O2 in the united kingdom, in addition to T Mobile and Lemon, and we extended as we discovered more. But usually, the items Apple loves to do, are issues we are able to do internationally.

We don’t possess the network ability. We’ll do some issues across the way with e-SIMs on the way, however in general, I like the items companies do.

Therefore it’s probably the embedded SIMULATOR observed in the most recent iPad Professionals may increase to additional iDevices, however, you gained’t have the ability to purchase a support strategy straight from Apple.
