2 5G Isn’t Here Yet
Speaking of incremental upgrades, the next big innovation in mobile and wireless technology is expected to be 5G. While many carriers are boasting about the 5G revolution, it will likely take several more years for the next-generation technology to actually reach the majority of consumers.
Apple, for its part, isn’t going to release a 5G iPhone until 2020 at the earliest. Similarly, many consumers in rural and less densely populated areas won’t get access to 5G until that year at least. In other words, the next big thing in smartphone tech isn’t here yet and won’t be for a while. And in the interim, 4G LTE is plenty fast enough to do basically everything that a consumer would want.
