Three 2020 iPhones will Support 5G, Apple Analyst Says
Back when the hype surrounding 5G started to come to light, Apple came right out and said that they wouldn’t be hopping on the bandwagon just yet. Apple CEO Tim Cook cautioned us not to expect a 5G ready iPhone until at least 2020. Well now we’re more than halfway through 2019, and according to top Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of TF Securities, the next fleet of iPhones set to launch in 2020 is likely to support 5G.
Kuo listed three reasons he believes the iPhones will be 5G ready by next year in a note he shared with investors, obtained by MacRumors:
- Apple’s acquisition of Intel has provided them with greater resources for developing the 5G iPhone.
- Prices of 5G Android smartphones are expected to drop.
- “Boosting 5G developments could benefit Apple’s AR ecosystem.”
