Almost all major players in the wireless industry are trying to find a way to incorporate 5G technology into their devices as soon as possible. For example, next month, we expect Verizon's 5G Home wireless broadband service, while LG and Sprint are looking forward to sending out the first smartphone capable of using this second-generation technology.
However, one company remains untouched in the cavalcade of go-getters and that the company is called Apple. This consumer electronics titanium released this Wednesday three new iPhones and a new version of Apple Watch, but it will most definitely choose to stay out of 5G competition, at least for the foreseeable future. So far it is still unclear that the new mobile technology comes to the iPhone by 2020.
Apple is the kind of company who likes to take the time to figure out the new technology before deciding to incorporate them into their products. It remained, even when its Android rivals were adopted things like wireless charging or mobile payments, and there was a step behind at least one generation when everyone began to adopt 3G and 4G LTE mobile capacity. Therefore, most industry analysts expect the same delay with 5G, although technology is approaching to become reality.
Ian Fogg, an analyst for OpenSignal that deals with collecting and analyzing data from different mobile networks, believes that 5G arrives slightly faster than expected. If Apple decides to set aside and take a slow way forward, it may be the only company to do that or at least one of the few who choose to follow such a scenario. The rest of them are likely to immediately embrace 5G, which is the next generation of wireless technology that is believed to change the world.
In addition to all the 5G hype and rumors, the response, improved speed and ability to control multiple devices that do not include your phone can change our way of life. It is because of this voltage level that follows 5G that companies ranging from telecoms decision makers like Nokia, to wireless carriers like T-Mobile and Verizon or smartphone manufacturers like Samsung, jump in as it will allow them to have a different feature like wild Allow them to boast.
The fact that Apple can afford to take the time to incorporate 5G technology is another proof that the California technological giant does not need help generating its own hype. Of course, another such example is the launch of its new, more expensive iPhones that took place earlier this week. So far, the company could not be available for comments.
When launched almost 10 years ago, the original iPhone represented a big step forward for smartphones. With its full browser features and touchscreen interface, among other things, it completely changed and helped the idea of how a smartphone should look and behave. Everything that was included worked tremendously, as well as the slow connection. Right now, when we live in a 4G world, waiting for the next development, it's easy to forget that iPhones worked on a 2G radio ten years ago. A website loading took forever and you felt the network was struggling with it.
Even then, other companies chose 3G upgrade that was definitely faster. Apple waited a year before deciding to incorporate the new technology into its devices, especially iPhone 3G. Years later, when 4G LTE was available, Apple left it again and waited until 2013 to release iPhone 5 that included the upgrade. This was more than 2 years later after Verizon showed its first series of smartphones with 4G.
Even last year when almost all Android smartphones chose to go supersonically with the Gigabit LTE speeds, Apple said "pass" on technology that preferred to release iPhone X, 8 Plus and iPhone 8 with just 4G. Only this year, Apple chose to include Gigabit LTE in its iPhone XR, XS and XS Max. The company chose to bet big on the mature 4G network, instead of playing on the new 5G technology.
