5G is going to be the next big technology with Samsung launching a 5G smartphone next year, although we may have to wait until 2020 to see a 5G iPhone.
According to a recent report by Bloomberg the first 5G iPhone will be launching in 2020 and not in 2019 like other manufacturers.
This should really not come as a surprise as Apple tends to wait a little longer than other manufacturers when new technology is released. This could give companies like Samsung the upper hand next year with their launch of their Samsung Galaxy S10 5G.
One of the reasons that Apple has decide to wait to 2020 is that they are expecting 5G technology and the networks to have issues in their first year, so it may not be a bad idea for them to wait until the technology is working as it should.
Apple are expected to re-design their iPhones for next years models, what design changes are coming to the handsets remain to be seen.
