Consistent with 9to5Mac was able to pick up on, David Pogue’s review on the Verizon iPhone contained a snippet that was later updated and removed. this feature allows your iPhone to become a real access point Wi-Fi that will share a connection between 5 computers or smartphones. In this regard, Pogue was told that this feature is also accessible on February 13.
The single new feature in Verizon’s iPhone is Personal Hotspot, where the iPhone becomes a Wi-Fi base station. Up to five laptops, iPod Touches or other gadgets can get online, using the phone as a glorified Internet antenna.
That’s incredibly convenient. Many other app phones have it — AT&T’s iPhone gets it on Feb. 13 — but Apple’s execution is especially nice. For example, the hot spot shuts itself off 90 seconds after the last laptop disconnects. That’s hugely important, because these personal hot spot features are merciless battery drains.
Apple actually expect the end of the period of two weeks free of the Daily before proposing this update, which also incorporates the new subscription API set up for the Daily.
