Apple’s iPhone 11 range is, arguably, 2019’s best smartphone line-up in what has been a very disappointing and, at times, very stupid year. But it still has one massive shortcoming and now we know what is going to plug it.
In a new research note attained by the ever-excellent 9to5Mac, acclaimed Apple insider Mind-Ch Kuo has reiterated his claim that Apple will introduce 5G across the 2020 iPhone range while revealing it will not be any old 5G implementation.
11/28 Update: ETNews reports Apple will also improve the displays in its 2020 iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max by adopting Samsung’s Y-OCTA screen technology. Y-OCTA removes the need for a separate touch-sensitive layer, making the displays thinner and lighter but no less durable. Apple’s 2019 iPhones were tipped to get this tech, but it slipped to 2020. Samsung has been using Y-OCTA in its own phones since the Galaxy S9.
