New iPad is Still Unable to Make FaceTime Calls over 4G!
As reported by The Verge, Apple’s new iPad is still unable to make FaceTime calls over the cellular network though it factually supports 4G LTE connectivity. The site also posted a screenshot as a proof of their judgment.
As you can see in the positively vexing screenshot [below], attempting to initiate a FaceTime call over LTE fails out with a message exhorting you to connect to a Wi-Fi network. It’s the exact same behavior that iOS devices on 3G networks have always exhibited, and it’s doubly frustrating as many of those devices can serve as Wi-Fi hotspots.
Obviously, it is due to unwillingness of the both AT&T and Verizon mobile carriers those don’t want to introduce this capability in the U.S in spite of Apple’s utmost efforts to offer this feature in earliest time . We think that these carriers will continue killing 4G LTE technology on new iPad in Canada and other countries where their network exists.
