- Advertisment -5G mmWave on all models?

In 2020, Apple finally launched its first 5G iPhones, after resolving its dispute with the company Qualcomm from which it can now source 5G modems for its devices. But at the moment, not all iPhones support 5G mmWave, which is the fastest technology.

There is not just one type of 5G

While the 5G sub-6GHz looks like an improved version of the 4G, the 5G mmWave allows a speed which, theoretically, can reach several Gbit / s. However, support for this faster 5G has only been announced for models sold in the United States.

Here’s what Apple wrote when announcing the iPhone 12: “In the United States, models support millimeter waves, operating on higher frequency bands, which allow iPhone 12s to achieve speeds of 4 Gbps, even in densely populated areas. “

But the good news is that with the iPhone 13, Apple is reportedly considering supporting 5G mmWave in other countries. At least that’s what is suggested by an article from Patentlty Apple, relayed by our colleagues at 9to5Mac.

According to this article, a Taiwanese company specializing in antennas is about to receive a large order to equip the iPhone 13 with a component specific to 5G mmWave. This Taiwanese company would share the market with another supplier, which already produces antennas for the 5G mmWave of the iPhone 12.

A logical continuation

Of course, at the moment, this is just a rumor. Still, as 5G mmWave rolls out across the world, it would make sense for Apple to expand support for it across its devices. In addition, it could be one of its main announcements during the presentation keynote of the future iPhone 13, in the second half of 2021.

Otherwise, it should be noted that 5G mmWave does not only have advantages. If this is faster than the 5G sub-6Ghz, on the other hand, it has a shorter range and would not pass very well through walls. Also, the two technologies are complementary.

Remember also that on the iPhone 12, Apple offers a feature that aims to limit energy consumption (which can explode with the arrival of 5G). Called Smart Data, this one “Extends battery life by intelligently assessing 5G needs and adjusting data usage, speed and power in real time. “

For their part, Android smartphone makers are expected to start marketing affordable 5G smartphones from this year, thanks to a new component from Qualcomm: the Snapdragon 480. This new chip should allow Apple’s competitors to offer 5G smartphones sold for less than $ 250.
