It’s here! The new Apple’s iPhone 12 2020 plans are already causing a stir with major updates inside and out. But now the latest news has revealed an Apple design decision that is radical, risky and potentially bright. Apple is working really hard for giving its best to its valuable customers.
Furthermore, in a new exclusive, the always excellent Fast Company reveals that Apple has decided to extract the core 5G technology from the iPhone 12 and start over. The site reports that Apple “rejected” the design of the 5G antenna module supplied by Qualcomm because it is too bulky for the “smart industrial design that Apple wants for the new phone.” And now Apple wants to build a replacement from scratch.
According to the recent news about Apple’s plans for 5G technology within the iPhone 12. In a report collected by 9to5Mac. Apple has ruled out its ambitious plans to include as many as six power amplifiers for 5G networks. Kuo says this has been reduced to only one or two amplifiers, which means the end of the MIMO 2×2 uplink support and slower 5G performance.
While adding more compression to this situation is Apple’s history. Apple previously considered designing the antenna on the iPhone 4 and the fundamentally flawed end result (which saw the signal strength drop when the phone was held) became known as “Antenna.” It also caused Steve Jobs’ infamous defensive response to an unhappy iPhone 4 user: “Just avoid holding it that way.”
Furthermore, the other side is the radical decision Apple has the potential to be a great victory with consequences for the entire industry. From a commercial perspective, if Apple can overcome the design of Qualcomm, it has an exclusive differentiator from the competition and obtains control of another part of the iPhone, something that could be very satisfactory for Apple considered the bad blood between the two companies after years Internationalization lawsuits There will also be cost savings for Apple because this will be a less part of the phone you have to license.
Just as Tesla can drive updates that improve the reach of its cars because they make their own batteries and, therefore, know their limits better than anyone else, Apple could push for updates that increase performance (and, consequently, network speeds ) of your 5G antenna in a way rivals who buy Qualcomm antennas cannot. From a design perspective, there are also great victories. Apple’s success over the more voluminous Qualcomm antenna would mean that the iPhone 12 can be more elegant than any rival 5G phone or use additional space savings for a larger battery. The latter is a key code given how hungry the 5G can be, especially in combination with the ProMotion 120 Hz screen of the iPhone 12.
Meanwhile, if the experiment goes wrong, Apple can still return to the Qualcomm antenna at the last minute. As such, it is a bold move, years ahead of schedule. It could also be the icing on the iPhone 12, which already has new screen sizes, an exciting long-range 3D camera, a new potentially transforming A14 chip and there is even a discussed return for Touch ID through an on-screen sensor to work together with Face ID.
