Apple Inc. says its highly anticipated iPhone will have a battery life that supports 8 hours of talk time.
The company said Monday the battery also supports 7 hours of video playback, 6 hours of Internet use, 24 hours of music playback, and it will feature up to 10 days of standby time before requiring a recharge.
When the phone was unveiled in January, Apple said it would support 9 days of standby time.
Just how powerful a pull will the iPhone be for AT&T? It's hard to say. According to a report in today's Wall Street Journal, just because someone knows about the iPhone doesn't mean they'll buy it. But it seems some carriers' subscribers may be more vulnerable for poaching than others.
According to researcher M:Metrics, just 14 percent of those who say they know about the iPhone will probably buy one. But more interestingly, 67 percent of those that are inclined to purchase an iPhone are subscribers on networks other than AT&T. Is this just iPhone envy?
Developers at WWDC are realizing that Steve Jobs made a purposeful omission when he didn't include Carbon in Leopard's list of 64-bit compatible libraries at this year's WWDC keynote.
Safari was an early hit with Windows users, who have downloaded 1 million copies of the browser since Monday, according to Apple. CEO Steve Jobs unveiled the Windows version of the browser as a beta release Monday during his keynote speech at the Worldwide Developers Conference. Safari makes up around 5 percent of the browser market, trailing Internet Explorer and Firefox with its 18.6 million users, a figure Jobs used in his speech Monday.
Consumers planning to buy the iPhone when it goes on sale later this month will need to have an iTunes Store account before they can activate the device, according to information on Apple Inc.'s Web site.
Apple will require customers to establish a separate account with its online media service in addition to one with AT&T Wireless Services Inc., which has signed an exclusive U.S. distribution deal for the iPhone.
