From the view in 3G and LTE eras, Apple's support for new network standards has been slow. Today, Bloomberg said that next year's new iPhone will not support 5G data network, Apple may have to wait until 2020 to add the mobile network standard support to the iPhone.


Currently, many carriers have indicated that 5G will be deployed in certain regions next year. At the same time, smartphone manufacturers such as Samsung are also actively preparing to launch devices that support 5G. However, Bloomberg believes that Apple predicted that the first versions of the 5G smartphones would suffer from problems like poor coverage.

Back in the day when the iPhone 4s was released, Android vendors began to sell various LTE devices, and Apple chose to continue to wait for the technology to mature. Goes on, it proves that Apple's wait right, the initial 4G smartphone consumes many power and spotty coverage, Second-generation 4G modem got optimized better. so that's when Apple started supported 4G on iPhone 5.

Of course, we still don't know what will happen to the first 5G phones, but Apple will choose to wait. Finally, the dispute with Qualcomm also limited Apple's decision to fully embrace 5G, because Intel's 5G chip has not yet been developed, and it still needs to wait for about 18 months. This means that the iPhone in 2019 is definitely not in time for the party.
