Apple’s new 2021 iPad mini is available with 5G cellular connectivity — just like the newest iPad Pro. But unlike its larger siblings, the sleek and slender iPad mini misses out on faster mmWave technology in the U.S.
Apple prepares to bring mmWave 5G to more countries with iPhone 13
Apple is adding new 5G component suppliers to bring faster mmWave connectivity to more countries with iPhone 13, according to a new report. The technology is currently available only in the United States.
Sources say Cupertino is now working with five antenna-in-package (AiP) manufacturers after adding AT&S to its roster.
Next iPhone lineup may bring smaller notch, better sensor-shift cameras
Apple will finally shrink iPhone’s notch for its next-generation devices, according to a new report citing sources in the company’s supply chain. Plus, all of the devices will pack even greater sensor-shift stabilization cameras.
It is believed design changes and upgrades to the iPhone’s front-facing Face ID camera and sensors will make the notch shrink possible.
iPad Pro could get super-fast mmWave 5G in 2021
Apple’s next-generation iPad Pro could bring 5G with super-fast mmWave support, according to a new report. The new slates, which are expected to launch in 2021, may use Apple’s own 5G modem.
Why you shouldn’t expect too much from 5G on iPhone 12
One of the biggest reasons to upgrade to iPhone 12 this year is for its 5G connectivity. It promises to be significantly faster than the 4G networks we’ve become accustomed to, making things like mobile gaming, content streaming, web browsing — basically everything you do online — better than ever.
You should be excited, but not too excited. 5G can be as spectacular as Apple led us to believe during this week’s iPhone 12 unveiling … but only if you can get good 5G coverage — and the right kind of 5G connection.
Allow us to explain what you need to know about 5G.
Report claims only a single iPhone 12 variant will offer fastest 5G
Those who plan to upgrade to iPhone 12 for its 5G connectivity may need to be careful about which variant they choose this fall. A new report claims only one will offer the fastest 5G technology.
While all iPhone 12 units are said to feature Sub-6 5G capabilities, one source claims you’ll need to opt for the largest, most expensive model to also enjoy faster mmWave 5G.
AT&T takes 5G nationwide, greasing the skids for a super-fast iPhone
AT&T’s 5G network expanded to cover 395 markets in the United States on Thursday. Which is coverage for 205 million current and potential customers. That puts the telecom close to T-Mobile in 5G coverage area, and well ahead of Verizon.
So at least some US carriers will be ready for the 5G iPhone if it debuts in a few months, as expected.
Exclusive: iPhone 12 faces delays, with faster 5G limited to key countries
A number of iPhone 12 models currently face delays and may not become available in key markets until later in the year, a trusted source familiar with Apple’s plans revealed to Cult of Mac.
Options also could be limited in the United States and in other countries, where faster mmWave 5G technology is available. Elsewhere, customers may have a complete iPhone 12 lineup to choose from, but with slower 5G technology, according to the source.
Apple still on track to deliver complete 5G iPhone lineup in 2020
Apple’s 5G iPhone lineup is still on track for a fall 2020 release, according to one reliable analyst.
A recent report suggested faster wwWave handsets, which are expected to succeed iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, may not arrive until early 2021. But those claims appear to be inaccurate.
