- Suppliers are gearing up to supply Apple with antenna in package components for the new iPhone.
- Digitimes reiterates that 60% of iPhone 13 models will feature mmWave 5G.
- Currently, the tech is only available in the U.S. iPhones and is much faster than sub-6 GHz.
A new report says suppliers are gearing up for a huge increase in demand for mmWave 5G parts from Apple, with the iPhone 13 expected to offer faster connectivity in several new countries.
The news echoes previous reports that state that Apple's next iPhone will build on the introduction of 5G in the iPhone 12, currently Apple's best iPhone, by bringing the much faster version to more countries. According to Ming-Chi Kuo, more than half of all next-gen iPhones will support 5G mmWave, bringing the tech to new shores including Canada, Japan, Australia, and other major European mobile operators.
