Briefly: Ting supports iPhone 5, Skrillex hides album in mobile game
<a href="http://macnn.com/rd/305823==https://ting.com/" rel='nofollow'>Ting</a> has started to support the iPhone 5 over its Sprint-based network, as rumored <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/305824==http://www.electronista.com/articles/14/02/25/age.of.device.likely.overriding.concern/" rel='nofollow'>last month</a>. The MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) already provides support for compatible <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/305825==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/11/04/iphone.support.still.largely.quiet/" rel='nofollow'>iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S</a> handsets, with the iPhone 5 bringing it closer to current generation devices, but not by much. A <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/305826==https://ting.com/blog/bring-an-iphone-5-to-ting/" rel='nofollow'>blog post</a> advises that, since the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c reached Sprint in late September last year, support for the devices is expected to occur at "about the same time this year." <br />
