This is the iPhone 12 Leaked, Release next October?

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Good news for fans of Apple products. It is rumored that Apple will release the iPhone 12 series in October, along with the Apple Watch and iPad in September. This was revealed by leaker Jon Prosser in his tweet on Twitter on Wednesday (13/8/2020).

Prosser claims that Apple will launch Apple Watch, iPhone and iPad products this fall. He also said the company would break with tradition and announce changes to at least two main product lines.

In a tweet, Prosser claimed Apple plans to debut the next-gen Apple Watch Series 6 and iPad models starting September 7, according to a press release due this week.

But Posser failed to determine which tablet Apple is slated to release, although current rumors point to the 10.8-inch iPad Air and the latest versions of the iPad mini.

In addition, Apple is also rumored to be working on the so-called AR glasses, Apple Glass which is likely to be announced as well at the announcement this fall.

Apple’s annual iPhone launch event is scheduled for the week of October 12, Prosser said, adding that the company will split the iPhone 12 launch into two phases. The iPhone 12 handsets will go up for pre-orders starting October 19, followed by the iPhone 12 Pro around November.

“With the release of the iPhone 12 staggered and the uncertainty of the end date for the Pro model, it is possible that the date could change,” Prosser said in a follow-up tweet, as quoted by Apple Insider.

The timing of Apple’s product launch was potentially staggered first reported by Digitimes. At the time, sources within Apple’s supply chain could reportedly launch two models, one measuring 6.1 inches in the first phase, and the 6.7 and 5.4 inches in the second phase.

Via a conference call, Apple CFO Luca Maestri confirmed the iPhone will launch “a few weeks later” than usual, hinting a release date of sometime in October or so.

Apple is expected to launch four iPhone 12 models at various prices. The more affordable 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch iPhone 12 models are rumored to have an OLED sport display, dual cameras, an A14 processor and an aluminum chassis.

Meanwhile, the 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro at a higher price adds a nicer screen, ProMotion technology, and an additional camera. While the iPhone 12 Pro Max or the largest models will have a LiDAR scanner. All 2020 iPhones will at least have 5G connectivity.

a supply problem for photo modules? (Update)

Update: The main interested party has denial l’information de Ming Chi Kuo.

The reputation of the giant’s iPhone Apple no more to do. Each September, as usual, the Cupertino company presents its new range of smartphones. However, because of the Coronavirus pandemic, this presentation would be postponed by a few weeks for this year 2020.

According to a report by renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, an important part of the iPhone 12 is said to fail. According to him, quality issues would affect the camera of the new iPhone 12.

Not to be missed: The Galaxy Note 20 are available for pre-order

Note that this problem should not influence the launch date of the phones. We are therefore expecting an officialization around September or October.

IPhone 12 camera failure

This failure would only involve the 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch models of the iPhone 12. The 6.1-inch Pro and 6.7-inch Pro Max models would not present a problem.

The problem would be with the coating of the lens of the wide-angle camera. Cracks were reported to have appeared on this coating during high temperature and humidity testing performed by lens supplier Genius Electronic Optical. The latter would be the only one to be affected by this problem. Production delays will therefore be inevitable for him.

On the other hand, the distributor Largan should not encounter any problem on this side. Apple would therefore have given priority to the latter for the provision of the objectives.

Will the failure impact the launch of the iPhone 12

Prioritizing Largan should fill Genius Electronic Optical’s production gap. Thanks to this solution, the failure of the coatings should have no impact on the launch date of the range. iPhone 12. According to Apple, final assembly of the phone will begin in mid-August and end in early October.

In addition, analyst Kuo indicates that Genius Electronic Optical could lower its prices to compensate for its lack of performance. This would undoubtedly affect the supplier, but would be inevitable in order to retain its share in the production.

Apple said on its conference call the week of July 27 that its schedule will be met. At least some of the models in the range should be presented around October. However, the launch date for the four iPhone 12 models would be different. The 6.1-inch iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro would be released first. The other two models would be presented later.


iPhones 12 would come with the ability to connect to the 5G network – CNN

(CNN Business) — Apple has long been expected to introduce a series of 5G-capable iPhones this fall. Now it appears that all the new phones the company will launch this year will be able to connect to the next generation of ultra-fast wireless networks, according to the analyst of Wedbush Dan Ives.

This is an important milestone that could help convince millions of people to upgrade their smartphones. 5G could convert iPhone 12 in a must have.

“Previously (we expected) 4 models with a combination of 4G / 5G for the launch of the iPhone 12. However, now, based on supply chain checks, we expect ONLY 5G models for the fall launch,” Ives wrote in a note to investors Sunday evening.

Apple did not respond to a request for comment for this story.

Although this projection is not a certainty, it would be a smart move for Apple, as it could drive a huge demand for the new iPhones as the company continues its march toward a market capitalization of $ 2 trillion.

In recent years, consumers have been waiting longer to switch their smartphones, a trend that could be exacerbated by the economic crisis caused by the pandemic in coronavirus. The biggest risk to new device sales is if “high unemployment and wage deflation continue,” according to Synovus Trust Company senior portfolio manager Daniel Morgan.

But analysts largely expect the iPhone 5G to create a “super cycle” of consumers buying new devices. Ives said he estimates that about 350 million of the total 950 million iPhones on the market could be upgraded in the next year and up to 18 months.

“We believe that iPhone 12 represents the most important product cycle for (Apple CEO Tim) Cook and company since iPhone 6 in 2014 and will be another defining chapter in Apple’s growth story going forward despite from a softer consumer spending environment, “Ives said, adding that he believes many on Wall Street are” underestimating the massive pent-up demand around this supercycle for Apple. “

The fortune of the Apple CEO 1:12

Apple’s strong earnings in the June quarter indicate that it could withstand the pressures of the economic crisis, Morgan said.

Ives also predicts that a lower-priced next-generation 4G model will hit the market early next year, which would be a potential opportunity to appeal to consumers who can’t or won’t pay for a 5G phone.

Achieving an iPhone connected to the 5G network could improve the consumer experience for Apple digital services, such as Apple TV +. Although iPhones have long been Apple’s biggest sales driver, the company increasingly relies on services to diversify its sales: Total service revenue hit a record $ 13.2 billion in the June quarter, driven due to the change in habits due to the pandemic.

Apple is a bit late to the competition of 5G phones. The iPhone 5G will join a growing list of phones on the market designed to connect to the next-generation network, including models from Motorola, Samsung, Huawei, LG and others.

Samsung presents its new phone and products 1:06

Samsung, one of Apple’s fiercest smartphone competitors, boasted in January that it had more than half of the global 5G phone market share. And last week, Samsung introduced its latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy Note 20, which comes with 5G capability and an ecosystem of interconnected devices.

“But with Apple it’s such a loyal ecosystem,” Morgan said, meaning his customers have probably been waiting for Apple’s 5G offer.

The adoption of 5G phones is likely to accelerate as the deployment of the new network expands – consumers need a 5G-enabled phone to connect to that network and take advantage of its benefits – and more features are built on top of it.

T-Mobile and AT&T have announced that their 5G networks are available nationwide at U.S and Verizon continues to develop high-speed 5G capabilities in cities across the country. China, a key market for iPhones, has also invested heavily in its 5G networks.

AT & T’s 5G network is now available across the U.S. 1:15

Ives said he expects Apple to release US and non-US versions of the 5G iPhone. It predicts that the US version will be able to connect to the fastest 5G networks – built with ‘mmWave’ spectrum – ‘after Apple and its suppliers appear to have solved some technological difficulties, which is a clear positive step towards this crucial launch’ .

He also predicts that the new iPhones will go on sale in October. Apple said last month that while new iPhones typically go on sale in September, this year the company expects supply to “be available a few weeks later” due to the pandemic.


a new magnetic attachment system to facilitate charging?

New photos from China claim to show the interior of the chassis of theiPhone 12. This one features a circular arrangement of magnets, probably related to wireless charging.

New images of what appears to be a circular magnet array for the iPhone 12’s chassis have appeared online. Having been relayed by @EveryApplePro, the photos suggest a return of the AirPower with the next generation of iPhone.

Not to be missed: The Galaxy Note 20 are available for pre-order

Apple, as you know, canceled its wireless charger last year due to unreliability. However, rumors suggesting a resumption of the development of the accessory have flooded the web lately. Recently, Jon Prosser even published footage of a new charging mat that appears to belong to Apple.

Regarding the leak we spotted today, when a Twitter member asked why Apple would develop a magnet network for its new smartphone, EverythingApplePro responded by saying it was “potentially linked to the ‘alignment of devices benefiting from wireless charging’.

A design that should facilitate the use of the wireless charger

The renderings specifically show a circular array of 36 small magnets. @EveryApplePro also shared an image of what appears to be an iPhone 12 case with the same peculiarity inside.

As 9to5mac notes, one of the disadvantages of wireless charging is that it requires some precision. It is necessary that the charger and the phone are properly aligned for the energy transfer to take place.

By placing magnets in the iPhone 12, Apple should facilitate this alignment while preventing the device from slipping when charging. It should be remembered that the AirPower should make it possible to overcome this constraint by integrating coils under its entire surface. But in the end, this concept turned out to be difficult to implement, hence the possible use of this magnetic attachment system.

Still gray areas …

Of course, the release of AirPower remains hypothetical so far. The automaker has already made it known that it is unwilling to launch a wireless charger unless it gets the right features and design. Granted, we don’t know exactly what these magnets are for, but one thing’s for sure, we’ll know the truth in about a month when Apple lifts the veil on the iPhone 12.


IPhone 12 version is also lowcost, and only with the 4G

Apple reportedly preparing two models of iPhone 12 from the launch on the market, one in version 5G and the other is more economic it only supports the 4G. This indiscretion has been launched in the last days from Daniel Ives, an analyst company Wedbush.

The decision is linked not only to the need to cover a portion of the market pays more attention to price, but also to satisfy customers that live in areas where there was still enabled the 5G. In addition, the models in 4G there may be more than one, but still do not have reliable information about it. In recent years, the brand is more and more attentive to produce less expensive fixtures, level released, so the idea of a brand only suitable for a particular segment of users. Probably, the turning point is also given by the success which in recent years have acquired trademarks considered low-cost like Xiaomi, Realme, and OnePlus.

iPhone 12 4G: features

L’iPhone 12 will be released in the version 4G is 5G. The news was released by the new account Twitter dedicated to the leaks in the field of technology @omegaleaks. The profile has also spread the likely prices devices:

  • iPhone12 4G sold about 490 eur (549 usd)
  • iPhone12 4G Max at 580 eur (649 usd)
  • iPhone 12 5G version from 580 euro and iPhone 12 Pro from 669 euro (respectively 649 dollars and 749 dollars)

The analyst, Jon Prosser, had advanced the hypothesis of price similar with regard to theiPhone 12 5G and if the scenario will materialize will be a very attractive price that could attract the attention of the average range.

Another indiscretion, instead, concerns a variant of the more prestigious call iPhone 12 Pro Max 5G that could be launched on the market at 1099 dollars, or 980 euro. The cost would be less than that of the new Galaxy S20 Ultrasold € 1,200 (1.399 dollars). The other rumor is about the the size of the phones: the lineup should include an iPhone 12 by 5.4 inches, which is a version of Max 6.1-inch display, an iPhone 12 Pro 6.1-inch display and a Pro version Max by 6.7 inches.

The range iPhone 12 4G will have the LCD screen

In December 2019, the analyst Jun Zhang of Rosenblatt Securities said that the company would launch six new devices on the market in 2020including the two models 4G, one of which is characterized by the LCD display.

In addition, he anticipated that all of the models iPhone 12 5G would have been powered by the chipset A14 Bionic and with the OLED screen. In terms of cameras, the iPhoen 12 “smooth” will have two sensors, while the Pro version it will mount four, including the LiDAR for the depth-of-field. Models belonging to the “Pro” version will have a screen with technology “Pro Motion” (the same as on the iPad Pro, which is capable of supporting a refresh rate up to 120Hz. In any case, if all the rumors were well-founded, fans ofiPhone they would be spoilt for choice for the next purchase.


IPhone 12, features confirmed by the first models

Apple seems to have finalized the design of the next iPhone 12while still not everything would be decided as far as the hardware that will be integrated in the smartphones that the house of Cupertino will present at the end of the summer or beginning of autumn.

At least it would seem so looking at the latest “dummy“ the models three-dimensional that are mainly used by manufacturers of covers and accessories to take measurements and prepare in advance their products. The models most recently have been revealed by the sites of leak a few hours ago, and are modeled fairly closely to some previous dummyless detailed, both of the images already circulating in the past few days. The sum of the sources, then, would be to think that the the shape and dimensions of the iPhone 12 will now be the ones we are seeing for some time.

iPhone 12: as will be

The range iPhone 2020 it will be composed by four models: iPhone 12 (5.4 inches), iPhone 12 Max (6.1-inch), iPhone 12 Pro (6.1-inch) and iPhone Pro Max (6.7 inches). Will look something like a cross between the iPhone 11, and the iPhone 4: from the first will inherit the aspect ratio and the roundness of the corners, while from the second the flat edges in aluminum. The models three-dimensional reporting to the bumper with the photographic section of the rear, however, should never be taken into consideration because it is not covered by the cover: in practice, it is just to show the size and shape of the pane.

iPhone 12: the components of some (and those not)

Far more complex, however, is the question what will be put inside of the four iPhone 12. Starting from the display, which according to the rumors there might be two, if not three, suppliers. Those sure seem to Samsung, for the models iPhone 12, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Maxand LG for the iPhone model 12 Max. For this model it would seem that Apple has evaluated, and discarded, even the chinese manufacturer BOE, Beijing Oriental Electronic, the name of which is blown out at the end of April, together with that of GIS in relation to the supply of the fingerprint sensor.

All models will be equipped with SoC The Apple A14 Bionic and will be compatible with the 5G (but only 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max will manage the millimeter waves). The first two models will have 4 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of ROM, while the top two models of the range will have 6 GB of RAM and up to 512 GB of ROM. With regard to the camerasthe rumors speak of two sensors on the iPhone 12 and 12 Max, the first of which that comes to 64 MP, and three sensors, a LiDAR for the depth on the other two models.

iPhone 12: how much will it cost

With regard to prices, finally, the uncertainty is even larger, but there is talk of a the range of 649-1.$ 399. The iPhone 12 should cost 649-749 dollars (128-256 GB). The iPhone 12 Max should cost 749-849 dollars (128-256 GB). The iPhone 12 Pro is expected to cost 999-1.$ 299 (128-512 GB). The iPhone 12 Pro Max should cost a 1,099-1.399 dollars (129-512 GB).


IPhone 12, confirmed one of the most expected

The long-awaited family iPhone 12 it is once again the center of rumor: for the official presentation lacks a lot, but the rumors are already so many. One of the most important clues dating back to may 2020, when the leaker Jon Prosser revealed the upcoming release of four models, suggesting also the related prices. He had also spoken of the presence of a notch tinynews denial these days.

After the many revelations of conflicting objectives an important news: the new range of Apple devices will support the display with update frequency to 120 Hz. This is what sets Ross Young, CEO of the DSCC. The function, however, will be limited only to the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max. In short, the Cupertino company is certainly not to watch and prepares to launch its new range of melafonini within the year (hopefully). But the rumors do not end here: thanks to CAD file we know something more about the design of the products.

How will the iPhone 12: display of last generation

The function of the most-awaited will arrive: the display with upgrade to 120 Hz it is one of the most sought after lately by the manufacturers increasingly present on smartphones top of the range. As far as the smartphone Apple seems certain to the arrival of the screen Pro-Motion models iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 pro Max, while the base model will have a the display at 60Hz. But this is not the only piece of news that has sparked users these days.

iPhone 12: new clues on the design

The platform EverythingApplePro has released some images, in CAD format, of the family iPhone 12 and immediately jumped to the eye the presence of a notch equal previous phones. Another curiosity is linked to the camera compartment composed by three rooms more LiDAR: it seems that the latter will be exclusive to the iPhone 12 Pro Max (6.7 inches), and then not find him on the Pro version (6.1 inches) as you thought.

Watching best file eye-catching the edgesthat will be dishes (the style reminds you of the iPhone 4) and the thicknessthat will be less by about 10% compared to the previous series. Of course you have to consider that these models are not official and Apple it may come as little surprise, once again, users. Often the images CAD are, in fact, prototypes are created for the manufacturers of cover in this way can prepare the guards, and sell them in conjunction with the launch of the phones. However, not always the two things coincide. Not to mention that some items, such as the notch, are not fundamental in the project of a housing, therefore, is not placed so much attention.

When will the iPhone 12?

Because of the Coronavirus could delay the arrival on the market of the new iPhone 12. Many leaker have speculated that we will be able see in October or Novemberbut it all depends on the progress of the work, and, above all, by the progress made to functions, which are increasingly sophisticated.


The IPhone 12 will be a return to the past: the design similar to the iPhone 4

The rumours according to which the iPhone 12 looks like a lot of the iPhone 4 are confirmed in a leak, whose reliability is however to be verified, coming from the Twitter account JinStore. This is the account of a user that is defined as “dealer premium Apple“, “supplier device Dev-Fused” (the devices Dev-Fused are the prototypes and pre-production), “Apple Security Researcher” and much more.

JinStore has posted some photos of printed models of iPhone 12 and of the rendering made with a CAD software. Would seem, at a closer look, the models that are distributed to the companies that produce cover to make the molds which will then be made of the enclosures. In the past, other models of this type, also of other manufacturers, they are finished at the centre of numerous leaks, which sometimes proved to be spot-on. In this case, however, the source is not certain of the most authoritative. But, if we want to get to the good, then it is true that the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro will be very similar in design to the iPhone 4, many thought the iPhone with a design better than ever.

iPhone 12: how it was done

Looking at the photos posted by JinStore, that relate to the iPhone 12 5.4 inches (which should be the iPhone 12 base), 6.1 inches (which should be the iPhone 12 Pro), and 6.7 inches (which should be the iPhone 12 Pro Max), the similarity with the iPhone 4 is glaring. The edges are strongly rounded frame and a thick body side metal typical of the iPhone 4, Apple would have added a great notch of the traditional type. In the lower part of the body you can see the holes in the microphone and the door to Lightning, in that the side buttons for power and volume, well protruding. Just as hanging is the bumper that houses the rear cameras, which are four.

Had reason Ming-Chi Kuo?

Ming-Chi Kuo is a famous name among those who love to follow the leak on the smartphone outputand is considered to be one of the most reliable in the world of Apple, since it is a financial analyst with excellent hooks in the supply chain of the chinese suppliers of the company from Cupertino. If you all believe that the iPhone 12 will be similar to the iPhone 4 that is precisely why Ming-Chi Kuo, already in September 2019 (when people still commented on the newly released iPhone 11), revealed that the iPhone 2020 would have a design completely different from the previous one and very similar to that of the iPhone 4. Always Kuo, later, had, however, stated that that type of design had the antenna 5G.


How much will iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro cost in Italy

It had never happened in the past to have all this information in April on the new Apple smartphones coming out in September. Usually the Cupertino company manages to always hide its cards very well and to leak the bare minimum. But not this year: about four months after the new ones come out iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro we know (almost) everything: the number of models launched, the characteristics, the design and even the price. The only information that is still missing is the exit date, which at the moment still remains in doubt because of the coronavirus that could postpone the launch of the new smartphones.

To reveal the latest information oniPhone 12 is once again Jon Prosser, who in recent weeks is becoming a real web star with all the advances revealed on the new Apple devices coming out in the coming months, including the AirPods Studio, the new wireless headphones. In his latest information, Jon Prosser has done nothing but confirm what was already known: the models launched will be four (two iPhone 12 and two iPhone 12 Pro), the price will be slightly lower than last year, the design will change radically, there will be the debut of the LiDAR camera for augmented reality and 5G support.

iPhone 12, how many models will be launched

Let’s start with one of the most important information: in total there will be four models launched by Apple. Two iPhone 12 and two iPhone 12 Pro. The names of the versions will be respectively: iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Max, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. A change of strategy compared to the past: Apple had never launched four models simultaneously.

iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro: the design

Apple has decided to refresh the design of its top-of-the-range smartphone, after three practically identical versions (iPhone X, iPhone Xs Max and iPhone 11). THE new iPhones 12 they will have many features in common with the iPad Pro launched a few months ago: all-metal side frame, design similar to that of the iPhone 5, no curves on the sides and a much smaller notch, thanks to the new sensors of the FaceID.

A decisive change, but no upheaval. Apple has decided to continue on the path traced in the past, trying to make the new iPhone 12 more modern.

The features of the iPhone 12

The iPhone 12 represents the lowcost model in the top range range. A strategy inaugurated with the iPhone Xr and that has brought good results. For 2020, the Cupertino-based company has decided to double: double economic smartphone.

The iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Max they will be identical: the only difference is the size of the screen. The iPhone 12 will have a 5.4-inch display and is a candidate to be one of the best compact smartphones of the year, while the Max version will have a 6.1-inch screen. In both cases it is an OLED display. On board there will be the A14 Bionic chipset with support for 4GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of internal memory. In the rear there will be two 12 Megapixel cameras, a solution already adopted last year. Certain the presence of the 5G modem.

iPhone 12 Pro, the technical sheet

iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will in all respects be Premium smartphones. As in the previous case, the only differences between the two models will be the size of the screen: 6.1 inches in the first case, 6.7 inches in the second. The screen will be a Super Retina with support for Pro Motion technology that allows you to adapt the refresh rate up to 120Hz according to the app used. Under the shell there will be the A14 Bionic chipset with 6GB of RAM and 128GB, 256GB or 512GB of internal memory.

One of the premium features of the iPhone 12 Pro will be the presence of four cameras. In addition to the main sensor, there will be a wide angle lens, a telephoto lens and a LiDAR camera dedicated exclusively to augmented reality and 3D objects. This is the same sensor also present on the iPad Pro 2020. The three sensors will all be 12 Megapixel.

Price iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro

One of the most interesting news is certainly the price of new iPhones 12, which is expected to be slightly lower than last year. here are the alleged launch prices of the four smartphones:

  • iPhone 12 – $ 649 and $ 749
  • iPhone 12 Max – $ 749 and $ 849
  • iPhone 12 Pro – $ 999. 1099 dollars and 1299 dollars
  • iPhone 12 Pro Max – 1099 dollars, 1199 dollars and 1399 dollars.

For the price in Italy you must add at least 100 euros due to taxes and exchange rates.

When iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro come out

The biggest doubt remains the possible iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro release date. Apple has leaked that there will be no delays caused by the Coronavirus and the presentation will take place in September. With the market launch set for early October.


IPhone 12, 5G will work “in half”: limited speed for many users

In recent days, Jon Prosser of Front Page Tech has published an indiscretion that the future iPhone 12 will have a base price of “just“$ 649, or 50 less than the iPhone 11, for the 5.4-inch OLED screen version, two cameras and 5G connection. Many have wondered how Apple will offer these features with this price.

Now Jon Prosser himself reveals the truth: the 5.4 and 6.1 inch iPhone 12 will not support millimeter waves, the so-called 5G mmWave, but only frequencies below 6 GHz. The only ones iPhone 12 compatible with millimeter waves will be those in the Pro and Pro Max version. In this way Apple clearly divides the range in two, creating an important technical difference that justifies the strong price difference: the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro In fact, according to Prosser it will cost $ 999 while the 6.7-inch Pro Max will cost $ 1,099. But what changes without the millimeter waves?

mmWave 5G: why it matters

The cellular networks that we have used in recent years, namely 2G / 3G / 4G, have used frequencies up to 3 GHz. 5G can be transmitted on various different frequencies: those at 700 MHz (currently occupied in Italy by digital terrestrial TV , waiting for the switch off), those at 2.6 GHz and 3.7 GHz and those at 26 GHz. Then there are the waves with higher frequencies, up to 95 GHz, which are defined as millimeter and in some countries have already been partially assigned (or will be in the future) to 5G networks. The higher the frequency, the greater the amount of data that can be transported in a single second, therefore the higher the speed of the Internet from the cellular network. But the lower the frequency, the farther the wave can go, therefore the higher the network coverage.

iPhone 12 “castrated”?

The fact that iPhone 12 may be incompatible with the 5G mmWave it’s not good news for users and potential buyers. The speed that can be achieved by exploiting these very high frequencies is truly remarkable: in the United States, for example, Verizon’s mmWave 5G network is able to offer speeds of over one GBps, practically like an excellent optical fiber. However it must also be said that this type of network has very low coverage and, in practice, it will be implemented mainly as alternative to public Wi-Fi in restricted areas such as squares, shopping centers or places of small extension but very crowded. Not being able to take advantage of the millimeter waves, therefore, may not be a huge sacrifice for Apple fans.
