iPhone 6 fantasies will no doubt reach fetishistic levels at some point, but we're far enough out from the fall, and from the inevitable leaks that will come as fall approaches, that many possibilities, many dreams, remain open to us. What with the all the new Android phones at MWC dropping like cluster bombs this week, I'll admit I'm incredibly eager to see what Apple has planned for this year as well. I'll preface it by saying all I've heard so far is that there'll likely be two iPhones this year, a 4-inch model and a bigger than 4-inch model. Whether that's the iPhone 5s dropped down, an iPhone 5sc made unabashedly plastic, or simply a smaller iPhone 6 remains to be seen. As does the size of the larger phone, from 4.3 to almost 5-inches. So let's begin there...
Late last year saw AT&T adding international LTE roaming in Canada and the UK, and today they're adding 13 more nations to the list. If the added services are treated in the same way as AT&T's deals with EE in the UK and Rogers in Canada, the rates charged for the "Data Global" add-ons won't change with the addition of LTE services, though AT&T did not say if that would be the case in their press release. AT&T put a full list of the countries where you'll be able to get LTE speeds while roaming starting today.

We produce a half-dozen or so podcasts a week here at iMore and Mobile Nations and it can be tough to keep track of them all. So, from now on, we're going to be rounding all the iPhone, iPad, and Mac-centric stuff up for you every Monday so you can quickly find anything you might have missed and catch up on anything that interests you! This week we deep dive on WhatsApp and what it means, take development down to the geeky kernel, pick some apps to help make school less stressful, find out how Finish got started, and nerded out over Blade Runner. Check them out!
The light, the sound, a pet, a person — something! — wakes you up in the morning and, sleep and dreams still swirling through your brain, you grope, bleary-eyed for your iPhone or iPad, fumble-to-unlock, and then swipe and tap around to launch... which app exactly?
The integrated flush folding wall prongs make this charger conveniently portable and storable. The low-profile design ensures that this 5W charger leaves other wall outlets open for use while the 3 feet of cable gives you the freedom to use your device while it charges!
WhatsApp, the popular and recently Facebook-acquired instant messaging (IM) app, will be adding voice to their service sometime in the next few months. That means WhatsApp users — all 465 million and counting — will not only be able to text each other but talk to each other as well.
Much has been made about Netflix's degraded performance of late on Comcast and Verizon, but there's finally some resolution. Comcast has announced a "mutually beneficial interconnection agreement" with Netflix that would appear to put the troubles behind them. This is good for Netflix and Comcast, but is it good for you?
A ridiculously impressive project hit Kickstarter last week called Dash. Not only are these earbuds truly wireless, but they also track your fitness with a tiny infrared LED, including motion, heart rate, and body temperature. One headphone talks to the other over Bluetooth, then the second talks to your iPhone over Bluetooth, though the headphones can play audio independently thanks to 4 GB of included storage. A capacitive touch sensor on the outside of each earbud lets you control audio, take calls, and adjust tracking.
