T-Mobile offering a bunch of increased and free products amid Coronavirus pandemic

Good Guy T-Mobile has announced some changes that should help out some of its customers who are relying on their T-Mobile data plans during the coronavirus pandemic.

For schools, T-Mobile is increasing the data allowance provided to students through the EmpowerED digital learning programs to ensure that every participant has access to at least 20GB of data per month for the next 60 days.

 

Customers who use T-Mobile’s low-income Lifeline program will receive extra free data up to 5GB per month over the next two months.

 

On top of all that, T-Mobile is also participating in the FCC’s “Keep Americans Connected Pledge,” which prevents internet providers from cutting off service to individuals and small business customers unable to pay their bills during the coronavirus outbreak.

 

Finally, T-Mobile is offering customers free two-day shipping fees for online purchases for 60 days as a courtesy.

 

Stay safe & hygienic everyone!

 

 

WWDC Update

Apple’s 31st Worldwide Developers Conference will, for the first time, be a digital-only event with no physical gathering . This is due to the ongoing spread of the coronavirus.

“We are delivering WWDC 2020 this June in an innovative way to millions of developers around the world, bringing the entire developer community together with a new experience, the current health situation has required that we create a new ‌WWDC 2020‌ format that delivers a full program with an online keynote and sessions, offering a great learning experience for our entire developer community, all around the world. We will be sharing all of the details in the weeks ahead.”

 

And, from Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering:

 

“With all of the new products and technologies we’ve been working on, ‌WWDC 2020‌ is going to be big.
