In an interview with Tencent Technology, Apple CEO Cook responded to the reason why the new iPhone does not support 5G, saying the 5G technology is now a bit ahead of schedule, so the iPhone does not support the technology this year.
Cook pointed out that the current 5G market, whether the infrastructure or chips are not mature enough to launch a high-quality product.
The following is the full text of Cook's answer that iPhone does not support 5G questions:
I think (5G) is still a little ahead of time.
We looked at the market and found that neither the infrastructure nor the chip was mature enough to launch a high-quality product.
In the past, Apple changed from 2G products to 3G products, and then from 3G products to 4G products. At each stage of product transformation, some people say that Apple should be faster and earlier. But Apple's goal is never to be the first. Apple's goal is to be the best, and if you want to be the best, you need technology to enter a stable period.
4G is now available in many countries, and even one carrier in the United States has launched a 5GE service. If we can make the best use of 4G network speed, in fact, you will find that 4G still has great potential to tap and improve. So in the iPhone just released this year, we do this, I believe you can feel these links in the future use. 5G potential is huge, but there are still many problems to be solved.
