If you are eagerly waiting for the 5G technology to use on your iPhone, you’re going to have wait for more time. It is a piece of bitter news for people who are looking for 5G enabled iPhones. As we know 5G is simply the 5th generation of cellular mobile communication technology. Like any other previous technologies, the main aims of the 5G is faster speed, better coverage, higher latency, energy saving, cost efficiency, etc. It is a modem for smartphones compatible with the 5G network, which, according to the company, is capable of reaching a peak speed of 6 Gbps.
As we all know, current mobile communication technologies utilize radio waves. But in 5G, instead of the radio waves, they will be utilizing the millimeter waves (mmWaves). The signals with wavelengths of between 30 and 300 GHz will be used for 5G to provide better coverage and strength.
We covered about new iPhone 5G launch news in the past.
Intel says that its modem has support for operators worldwide, so, at least on paper, it should be compatible with any operator in the world. To leave doubts will have to wait until the first half of 2019, the date on which these chips will be released to the market, and even more to see them in action.
These are the past statements about the launch of 5G technology and availability to the companies to start manufacturing of the 5G enabled smartphones including the iPhone.
Recently an event held in Palo Alto by Intel, the executive Sandra Rivera said that Intel is not expecting to have consumer “products in the market” until 2020. It means the smartphone manufacturing companies have to wait more time to produce the phones with 5G chip enabled.
To deal with the situation, Apple has reportedly been in talks with Samsung and MediaTek about the 5G chip delivery. If Apple is unable to find the Chips, it means the new iPhone with 5G technology manufacturing further delays and won’t be available in 2020.
