Apple has announced its upcoming ‘Hi, Speed’ event, in which it plans to unveil its 5G iPhone 12.
As carriers continue rolling out 5G across the country, the lack of a wide variety of quality 5G phones is one of the factors holding back widespread adoption. Apple’s iPhone is considered by many analysts to be one of the lynchpins necessary for the new technology to truly take off.
Analysts believe Apple will release iPhone 12 models supporting both mmWave and the slower, but far more available, low and mid-band 5G. This could give a big boost to T-Mobile and AT&T, since both companies have invested heavily in low-band rollouts. T-Mobile has also rolled out mid-band 5G in a large portion of the US, providing speeds in excess of 1Gbps, while still providing decent coverage.
Apple’s even is scheduled for October 13, and will be broadcast from Apple Park.
