It will be the first 4G LTE iPhone
Think back to around the time of the iPhone 4S release and you may remember a little story that USA Today ran. Supposed 'tech insiders' stated the new iPhone would be Apple's first foray into the 4G market. That, of course, turned out not to be true. This time, however, it almost certainly will be.
4G is just another name for the mysterious-sounding LTE (Long Term Evolution), which is mobile providers' ongoingÂ programme of upgrades to their network's bandwidth. As it stands we can expect the iPhone 5 to be optimised for 4G networks, wherever they're available. It's surely no coincidence that in the UK - a relative latecomer to the 4G party - the first consumer 4G network was announced the day before the iPhone 5 launch.
