iPhone 13 may bring mmWave 5G to more countries


The rumor: Apple is planning to expand the fastest 5G to more countries on iPhone 13, according to Ming-Chi Kuo (75% accurate).

  • In a new research note we obtained, Kuo says that mmWave 5G is expanding to more countries on the 2021 iPhones
  • mmWave is the fastest kind of 5G that allows for speeds of over a gigabit/s

Our take: Living in the US, I forget that only US iPhone 12 models support mmWave currently. While I don’t get why this wasn’t released everywhere in 2020…I’m glad to hear that it’s expanding on the 2021 iPhones.
