5G, the next generation cellphone service technology, promises 4 gigabits down and 200 megabits up.
The new iPhone 12 series are the first iPhones to be equipped with technology to receive 5G signal and benefit from its increased download and upload speed.
This is certainly great for the future, but at present not many consumers will be able to access these enhanced antenna bands.
While the future of 5G looks promising, the early versions of this technology suffer from specific issues such as the cost of the extremely high speed. The areas covered from one broadcast is limited to the size of say, a park, an airport, or a football stadium. The technology has not yet reached a point where consumers will receive the benefits of 5G data while in a car, office building, or at home.
