Extra international locations will get quick mmWave 5G assist with iPhone 13 – 9to5Mac

Corroborating a report from Ming-Chi Kuo earlier within the yr, Digitimes is claiming that greater than half of iPhone 13 fashions manufactured will assist 5G mmWave.

As a reminder, the iPhone 12 helps sub-6GHz 5G worldwide however the superfast gigabit speeds are solely obtainable in america with mmWave expertise, as solely US-model iPhone 12s have the particular mmWave antenna window and radios embedded.
