Apple has announced its first 5G iPhones. They range in price from $ 729 to well north of $ 1,100. Even the Mini offers access to speedy millimeter-wave networks.
It’s a special window for mmwave signals, and it appears to be designed so users can visibly see it and perhaps avoid holding it there for maximum signal strength.
The new iPhone is a mmwave antenna window. Can confirm that this little thing on the side of the new device is a mm wave antenna window.
The iPhone 12 mini picture is from Apple UK. It does n’t seem to be a feature of iPhones that will be sold elsewhere in the world.
A comparison image of the iPhone 12 Pro Max was taken from Apple’s us and UK websites. The image was taken by Apple’s online and U.S. websites.
Iphone 12 does n’t support mmwave 5G outside of the United States. Compatibility with bands n260 and n261 are missing everywhere else in the world.
Mmwave 5G does offer far higher speeds than the’nationwide’ flavor of low-band 5G. The only other consistent thing about mmwave is its inconsistency.
Apple’s spent years building antennas into the bands of other phones without issues, and it’s already lived through that first scandal.
