Apple reportedly will launch the iPhone with 5G network connectivity in 2020.
Reportedly, Apple will later release a 5G technology smartphone because they want to wait for the fifth generation fast internet network to mature first.
Apple is known to tend to adopt the latest cellular technology late. iPhone 3G, for example, only arrived in 2008, while 3G networks started in 2007. Apple implemented 4G LTE on the iPhone 5 in 2012, that’s about two years after other 4G smartphones began to appear.
However, other news claimed that ‘slow’ Apple was involved in a conflict with Qualcomm, one of the 5G developers and providers of modem chips needed to connect to the 5G network. The conflict caused Apple to switch to an Intel modem chip for some iPhones. However, Intel’s 5G modem chip is said to be ready by 2020.
If later Apple and Qualcomm reconcile, maybe this technology company based in Cupertino, California, USA will be able to use Qualcomm’s modem chips to quickly deliver 5G in their products.
In addition, there is also speculation that Apple is trying to develop its own modem chip so as not to depend on other parties, Phone Arena report.
