iPhone 12 may have next-gen 5G connectivity

Several rumours have that that Apple will have 5G connectivity this year. More specifically, Apple analyst Ming-chi Kuo expects the company to unveil three 5G phones, and Fast Company reported that Apple may use its own proprietary 5G antennas. There are a couple of reasons why Apple didn’t jump on the trend in the year 2019. the reasons are:

  1. Apple usually isn’t the first in on mobile trends, preferring instead to perfect an emerging technology before committing to it. For example, Apple was behind its competitors in making phones with 3G and 4G LTE connectivity. This was back when those networks had just launched.
  2. Apple stopped working with the leading 5G modem provider, Qualcomm. This was because of a dispute over Qualcomm’s licensing fees. The two companies (Apple and Qualcomm) settled their litigation in April 2019 and then later agreed to a multiyear 5G chip deal. This led to Apple’s previous partner of 5G modems, Intel, to ultimately exit the 5G phone modem business altogether. Apple later acquired Intel’s smartphone modem business for $1 billion. Apple is still working with Qualcomm, but it got started too late to launch a 5G phone last year when a few of its rivals released their 5G models, like the Galaxy S10 5GLG V50 5G and OnePlus 7 Pro 5G.
