"Apple will launch its next-generation iPhone series - tentatively dubbed the iPhone 13 - later in 2021, according to industry sources, which believe that more than 50% of the total iPhone 13s set to be shipped this year will be 5G mmWave models," a preview of the report said.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claimed this earlier and suggested that Apple plans to provide support for the mmWave 5G in additional countries, including Canada, Japan, Australia, and some European countries.
mmWave 5G is a set of 5G frequencies that provides ultra-fast speeds at short distances, making it perfect for dense urban areas as compared to sub-6GHz 5G. The latter is generally slower but the signals travel further, making it better for suburban and rural areas.
Previous reports have also suggested Apple's plans to substantially increase support for mmWave 5G in existing iPhone models like the iPhone 12 in 2021. mmWave support on iPhone 12 models is limited to the United States and Apple plans on increasing shipments of mmWave iPhones to other countries, making it widely available.
