Following the release of hacked carrier files for Apple’s latest iPhone and iPads, developer Joseph Brown has written a blog post claiming that Apple is reducing the peak cellular data speeds of iPhones and iPads through coding. Notably, Brown writes that AT&T, Verizon and Sprint devices are all throttled in some way, but T-Mobile devices are not. Brown suggests that AT&T limits HSPA+ and LTE to below their peak speeds, while Verizon permanently throttles LTE, both Verizon and Sprint throttle down 3G, and signal issues for T-Mobile and AT&T are caused by band preferences set by Apple.
