A few days back, iPhone users on DiGi were pushed a new software updates which gives them 4G LTE support. Now Apple’s website finally confirms this and have listed DiGi under its list of supported telcos for their iPad & iPhone which includes the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPad Air & iPad mini with Retina display.
Unlike other 4G telcos such as Maxis & Celcom, DiGi’s 4G network is running solely on LTE Band 7 (2600MHz). Interestingly, Apple has listed DiGi being supported for the iPhone 5 and the 4th gen iPad with Retina Display which runs on LTE Band 3 (1800MHz). DiGi meanwhile has also confirmed on Twitter that its 4G network runs on 2600MHz.
At the moment, DiGi’s 4G LTE roll out is said to be in the testing phase and it is limited to the Klang Valley. Before you’re able to hook on to their 4G LTE network, DiGi says that you would need to switch to their USIM card which has a “U” indicated on the SIM.

It appears that DiGi is one step closer in enabling 4G LTE for iPhones. If you’re an existing DiGi subscriber with an iPhone 5/5S, you should be getting a software update which enables LTE connectivity under Cellular settings.
However don’t get too excited just yet as DiGi’s 4G LTE service doesn’t seem to be working for smart phones right now. DiGi’s 4G LTE service is currently available for broadband & tablet use. In response, DiGi has tweeted that 4G LTE for smart phones would be coming soon but without mentioning when exactly.
When DiGi started its 4G LTE commercial service 6 months back, they were running only on LTE Band 7 (2600MHz). As comparison, the other LTE telcos such as Maxis & Celcom are running on both Band 3 (1800MHz) and 7 (2600MHz).
The latest iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C supports LTE on both 1800MHz and 2600MHz frequency while the previous iPhone 5 only supports 1800MHz. Ideally we hope DiGi would offer LTE on 1800MHz as well so that existing iPhone 5 users would get to enjoy 4G speeds too.

For those wanting to experience 4G LTE on the iPhone 5, Celcom has finally joined the bandwagon as it gets listed under Apple iPhone 5′s 4G LTE supported telco. This follows after Maxis’s commercial availability of 4G LTE on 1800MHz 2 months back. When Celcom announced commercial 4G LTE service, it was initially rolled out with a standalone wireless broadband service without any smart phone services.
A carrier software update is expected for iPhone 5 users on Celcom which allows users to enable LTE under Cellular Data settings. For more information on LTE availability, head over to Celcom’s 4G LTE coverage page.

Missed the WWDC 2013 keynote last night? Can’t be bothered to sit through the full 2-hour long video? Here’s a 10 minute recap of all the juicy bits so that you can keep up to speed with what everyone’s talking about.
Apple is giving its iPhone and iPads a new breath of life with its latest iOS 7 operating system. After launching several mobile devices since 2007, the iOS platform has been pretty much the same with minute changes here and there. With the competition stepping up from the Android, BlackBerry and even Windows Phone camp, a change is needed by Apple to keep its mobile devices on par with today’s growing need.
Without a doubt, the iOS platform is one of the easiest to use mobile OS out there. Simplicity has always been a key which allows users from either young or old to pick up an iPhone or iPad and start using it with rather minimal learning curve.
For power users particularly those who have been comfortable with other flexible mobile platforms, would be harder to please on iOS. Biggest challenge is how could Apple offer more control and features but yet maintain the simplicity that it is has been famous for?
Couple of weeks back, we did a camera comparison of the latest flagship devices such as the HTC One, BlackBerry Z10, Nokia Lumia 920, iPhone 5 and Sony Xperia Z. With the Samsung Galaxy S4 being launched recently, it’s time for another round of camera shootout. This time we’ve thrown the Galaxy Note II in the mix as well.
Topping the megapixel count in this comparison are the 13MP shooters – Galaxy S4 and Xperia Z while the Lumia 920 8.7MP shooter shoots at 7.9MP. The iPhone 5, Galaxy Note II and the BlackBerry Z10 comes with the usual 8MP count. Of course not forgetting is the HTC One’s Ultrapixel camera which shoots an effective 4MP.
Without further ado, head after the break for the comparison. Let us know which you think is better?
