Metal detectors seemingly being installed at WWDC as Tim Cook acknowledges Orlando tragedy

A tweeted photo suggests that Apple is installing metal detectors at the entrance to WWDC for the first time, as CEO Tim Cook tweeted a message in support of the victims and families of the Orlando shooting.

The additional security – a first for a WWDC event – is likely to be in response to the deadliest mass shooting in recent history, a gunman killing 49 people and injuring more than 50 others in a gay nightclub in Orlando over the weekend.

As we reported last week, AT&T today launched its new pre-paid wireless MVNO called Aio Wireless with the iPhone 5 on offer, front and center. Currently, the service is only available in Houston, Orlando and Tampa but it is expected to roll out nationally over the coming months.

The company will offer 4 plans: Aio Basic, Smart and Pro phone plans at $35-40 for 250MB, $55 for 2GB and $70/month for 7GB data respectively. Each plan will shift to lower speed data after data is used up and also offers unlimited calls and text on AT&T’s network. They will also offer a tablet plan that starts at $15/month for 250MB.

The MVNO will carry Android, Windows and Apple smartphones including iPhone 4S for $499 and iPhone 5 for $649 without subsidy. They also cap 4G data at 4Mb/s so LTE speeds shouldn’t be expected.

Clearly this, as well as Verizon’s upcoming MVNO-like service, will address the competition from T-Mobile and other pre-paid carriers.
