iPhone 12: Will it be Apple’s First 5G Phone

iPhone 12: Will it be Apple’s First 5G Phone

Apple’s second fiscal quarter for 2019 stood at $31.1 billion, which was $37.6 billion in 2018’s second fiscal quarter. Although iPhone 11 has been loved by many around the world. iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max are still top-notch devices overall. Apple iPhones generally last longer than any other phones because of the software updates, data privacy in ios, and usability. But, this year, Apple has planned big and has decided to launch its first 5G phone, Apple 12.

Introducing 5G

Many analysts believe that iPhone 12 is going to be a significant upgrade. Analysts have been saying that the smaller notch, new camera setup, in-display fingerprint sensor, and 5G technology will be introduced in this new iPhone. According to TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple might ship 70-75 million iPhones in 2020, compared to 65 to 70 million this fall. Kuo says that Qualcomm and Samsung will be providing the 5G chips for Apple’s new iPhones in 2020. The latest X60 5G modem by Qualcomm might be under the hood of 2020 iPhones. The new modem will aggregate the spectrum of the network across the mmWave 5G band and ‘sub-6’. Apple’s 5G chip will be mainly centered on mmWave while Samsung s going for sub-6GHz, says Ming-Chi Kuo.

Since Apple has bought Intel’s modem business, there have also been speculations that Apple won’t buy 5G modems from Qualcomm and will design its own modems. But, it is not going to happen with iPhone 12. Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that 5G capabilities of new iPhones will use fewer signal amplifiers, he thought. It means slower 5G speed, but if users are still on 4G, they won’t find any difference.

Benefits of 5G

There are countless benefits of 5G. And the most significant benefits are, that it will offer higher speed in the transmissions that enable consumers to download content more quickly. Also, it offers much lower latency (1 ms), providing users to experience less delay, and get better performance. Therefore, it will provide greater flexibility for remote execution, a larger number of mobile devices, and the potential to incorporate virtual networks (network slicing), offering more personalized access to specific needs. In 5G, the latency will be 10X less than 4G, which means you can perform remote actions in real-time.

How will 5G benefit industries and government organizations? 

  • Controlling PCs by handsets.
  • Education will become more convenient as students can attend the class by sitting in any part of the world.
  • Medical Treatment will become easier & less expensive so that doctors can treat the patient from where ever they want.
  • Monitoring will be easier − A governmental and investigating organization can monitor easily from any part of the world which can reduce the crime rate.
  • Visualizing universe, planets, and galaxies will be possible.
  • Possible to locate and search the missing person.
  • Natural disasters including tsunami, earthquakes, etc. can be detected quicker and easier.

Drawbacks of 5G

The biggest drawback of 5G technology is that it still takes a lot of time to roll out. The network of 5G technology will be limited to some selected cities as carriers work to build out their systems and upgrade their equipment. Also, it will be spotty, with carriers relying on LTE as a backup for the first some years after launch. If we believe in the report, then it is assumed that it will consume a lot of your battery, which will get better with the second-generation 5G chips Apple is likely to use.

What Else to Expect?

Along with it, Touch ID, which has been the most loved feature in Apple’s previous iPhones, will be re-introduced. But, this time, it will be integrated under the screen. According to Barclays analyst Blayne Curtis, Apple could bring Touch ID into the screen in 2020 iPhones. Another headlining feature in the upcoming iPhones will be its camera with a new 3D camera, which will offer better AR performance. Many iOS app development companies and agencies will love to make some applications that will go hand-in-hand with the new 3D camera. 

Apple is also planning to launch the iPhone 9 earlier than iPhone 12. And, after the iPhone 9, Apple will launch four iPhone 12 models. With iPhone 12 carrying 5.4 and 6.1 inches displays and two iPhone 12 Pro models having 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches display. When it comes to displays, Apple hasn’t brought 120Hz refresh rates in the iPhones till now. But, the audience can see OLED screen with 120Hz refresh rates in the new iPhones of 2020.

What’s in for iOS development companies?

Companies offering iOS app development services are going to enjoy these new iPhones of 2020 because the development bubble will be broken down. Apple has a 3-year model refresh span, which started with iPhone X till iPhone 11 Pro. The iOS app development agencies have to work for the same features and a few refreshments nonetheless for these three years. With the new generation kicking off with iPhone 12, iOS app development services might see a big turn, and companies will have to bring newer stuff to get along with these new 2020 iPhones. Not to forget, Ming-Chi Kuo’s predictions have always been accurate and legitimate. Still, since there has not been any official confirmation on what’s Apple going to bring on the table, everything has been speculated, and the information must be taken with a pinch of salt.
