Apple released a Carrier Update for the iPhone 5 on Verizon to eliminate an issue where Verizon Cellular Data would be used while the device is connected to a Wi-Fi network after various users reported unexpectedly high data usage in the short amount of time since they owned their handsets and wanted to know whether the data consumed would be chargable due to the issue.

MacRumors reported that both the black and white models of the new iPhone will be launched on Virgin Mobile’s CDMA network in 16, 32, and 64 GB versions.

4G LTE connectivity is reportedly coming to UK’s EE on October 30, in 10 major cities including Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Sheffield.

Sterne Agee analyst Shaw Wu wrote that demand for the iPhone 5 remains high despite concerns over iOS 6′s Maps app and expects Apple to sell a record 46.5 million iPhones with “room for upside.”

Workers at Foxconn’s Zhengzhou factory have reportedly gone on strike after complaining about the new demands that are difficult to meet.

However, the company released a statement denying the reports.

In an interview with Pocket Gamer, Rob Murray, the executive producer of Foremonkeys, said that Real Racing 3 is equipped with better graphics and improvements that will be visible on all Apple iOS devices.

After closely watching the development of Real Racing 3, he believes that the iPhone 5’s graphics power is 10 times better than that of the iPhone 4.

After users have reported that the iPhone 5 camera creates a purple halo effect on some photos, the issue was acknowledged by Apple.

The solution offered by the company was to “angle the camera away from the bright light source when taking pictures.”

The macro photography capabilities of the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 were compared in several shots taken by Lex from Modahaus, Cult of Mac reports.

Another comparison was made by CNN journalists who made a parallel between the iPhone 5 and Oppo Finder, demonstrating how thin the Chinese phone is as compared to Apple’s smartphone.

iMore’s James Richardson performed some tests comparing 4G and 3G download speeds for the iPhone 5.

In addition, it was reported that the iOS app Camera+ has been updated to support the iPhone 5′s low-light boost mode.

The new feature is available to third party developers and Camera+ is the first third-party iOS app to incorporate it.

A new study conducted by iFixit and HealthyStuff.org revealed that iPhone 5, Samsung Captivate, iPhone 4S, Motorola Citrus, Samsung Evergreen and Remrq LG use materials that contain less toxic chemicals.

This week also marked a year since Steve Jobs passed away.

An article by Business Week detailing the changes that have occurred in the company since Jobs left his position as CEO also revealed that the iPhone 5 was the last phone from Apple to get his blessing.

Consumer Reports tests revealed that the handset is ranked as “among the best smart phones in our Ratings and the best iPhone yet” despite its map issues.

An ad by Nokia that taunts the Cupertino tech giant and its latest iPhone, highlights the new Lumia 920 with its vibrant colors.
