Bloomberg has discussed the issue with “people close to the company,” who refuse to be named. Sources claim that Apple will wait until the 5G network matures and stabilizes before launching a compatible product.
This is a strategy Apple has adopted in the past, launching the iPhone 3G and 4G long after their competition.
Waiting, Apple can give top rivals an important edge.
“Apple has always been in delay with phone technology,” told analyst Gartner Mark Hung for Bloomberg.
“They were not affected in the past, but 5G would be much easier for the market. If they wait beyond 2020, then I think they will be affected. “
