Apple patents the antenna of the first iPhone with 5G

In May of 2017 it was discovered that Apple applied for a license from the FCC that covered a new technology to back a 2015 patent and published in 2017. We are talking about 5G technology for the iPhone.

Now, Apple has reissued a fourth patent in the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The 5G connectivity will be part of the next step in the mobile data sector and could offer speeds more than 10 times faster than the current ones with the 4G and LTE networks.

The patent was published shortly after AT & T announced its plans for the future to become the first US operator to offer mobile 5G.

Apple prepares its first 5G antenna for iPhone

According to the patent, and as suggested by Patently Apple , Apple will introduce a special antenna required for 5G services:

"It would be desirable to be able to support wireless communications in millimeter wave communications bands. Millimeter wave communications, which are sometimes called extremely high frequency (EHF) communications, involve communications at frequencies of approximately 10 - 400 GHz. Operation at these frequencies can support high bandwidths. "

But theory is one thing, and practice is another thing. The speed of the mobile data connection can vary due to different factors such as the distance of your signal or the mass of traffic (a common problem in large cities) so 5G technology will not be easy to implement.

In fact, the company of the bitten apple was slower than its competitors when it comes to offering support with 3G and LTE connectivity , hopefully this time Apple will be ahead of its rivals.
