Apple's Almost Guaranteed a 4G iPhone 5
February 14, 2012 12:37 PM
If it wasn't expected, it was certainly hoped for.
As previously suspected
, several sources have now confirmed that
) will unveil the iPad 3 during the first week of March -- specifically March 7. Along with delivering a quad-core A6 processor and an eye-popping 2048×1536 Retina Display, Apple has granted wishes and added 4G LTE networking with the upcoming tablet,
according to the Wall Street Journal
. The paper reports that
) 4G networks will support the device with
) still being a toss-up.
While this will certainly add some spice to Apple's war with
) tablets -- especially considering
Android's market share is inching up as Apple's droops
-- it's almost guaranteed that the iPhone 5 will come with 4G networking support.
It was clear that Apple's mobile 4G absence wasn't ideal, and its grand entry became more imminent the more LTE Android devices flooded the market. iPad 3 networking abilities aside, if Apple were to hamstring the iPhone 5 with only 3G, it would be disastrous. But to launch an LTE iPad 3 and then relegate the iPhone 5 to 3G networks? That would be downright unthinkable.
But will an LTE iPhone 5 suffer from the infamous 4G battery drain? Possibly, though if the iPad 3 is sporting a much larger battery to power the faster data speeds and Retina Display, the iPhone 5 will surely come equipped with more power. Then again, the iPhone 4S
doesn't exactly have the longest battery life
, and that's just on GSM and CDMA networks. Here's hoping Apple can tinker the 4G smartphone into respectable talk and standby time.
So with an LTE iPad 3 nearly confirmed, Apple has essentially announced an LTE iPhone 5.
Celebrate as you will.
