San Francisco: On Tuesday, Apple released an invitation letter for an online event on September 15, which is expected to be the first iPhone tailored specifically for ultra-fast 5G telecom networks.
Usually word of mouth technology giants only reveal that the presentation will be streamed from their Silicon Valley headquarters starting at 1700 GMT.
A copy of the invitation letter sent via email quickly spread on social media, which showed the blue color of the Apple logo in the form of a video clip, which was organized in the event date.
The invitation letter is also posted on the Apple website, where the event will be broadcast live.
Apple usually holds some events to release new iPhones at this time of the year, and it is expected that this time the focus will be on 5G models, and other new phones may also appear.
Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives (Daniel Ives) said in a report to investors that the inspection of Apple’s supply chain in Asia strengthened his confidence in the iPhone 12’s “supercycle” and that the iPhone 10’s “supercycle” “Cycle” released several new models in October.
Ives believes that the Chinese market is “a key factor in Apple’s secret of success.” He expects that the Chinese market will account for 20% of iPhone upgrades in the coming year.
Touted that 5G networks are expected to achieve exponential leaps in wireless data volume and speed, thereby making progress in autonomous vehicles, virtual reality, and connected health, sensors and servers can communicate instantly.
Rob Enderle, a technical analyst at Enderle Group, warned that although Apple hopes to launch a 5G iPhone on the market, it may not have chip technology yet.
Apple last year bought most of Intel’s smartphone modem business for $1 billion, a move that gave iPhone manufacturers more control over its supply chain.
The deal was reached after Intel announced that it would abandon its efforts to compete with modem chips for smartphones synchronized with 5G networks.
Apple has been investing in its own mobile chips to improve the performance and functionality of its devices and reduce its dependence on industry leader Qualcomm.
“If you have a premium phone, I don’t see how you do it without 5G,” Enderle said.
Competitors of smartphones usually release updated models before the year-end gifting season, this time it may be eased by the economic disruption caused by the pandemic.
