Apple begins work on 6G connectivity for future iPhones

The rumor: Just months after launching the first iPhones with 5G, Apple is already looking to the next standard, according to Mark Gurman (89.1% accurate).


  • With sixth-generation cellular connectivity, “some analysts say the technology could enable speeds more than 100 times faster than 5G”
  • Like with their first-party silicon, Apple plans to one day design and produce the cellular modems found inside their products

Our take: With the disappointing and shortsighted rollout of 5G, it’s comical to already be talking about 6G. But I have no interest in any future wireless standard until the promise of 5G is actualized and delivered.
