Apple in a “holding pattern” on iPhones until 5G models launch

Apple made some announcements about their streaming services and upcoming iPhone 11 Pro today, but there was no mention of a 5G-capable iPhone. Analysts indicate that Apple is in a “holding pattern” for the time being as they wait to launch a 5G iPhone, which is expected to happen next year.

5G has been rolling out around the country, primarily from Verizon and AT&T, but there are limited devices available for customers to utilize the new service. Many would-be customers are eagerly anticipating a 5G-capable iPhone, and it looks like Apple is holding off on making major changes to the iPhone line until they are ready to launch that. 5G coverage should be much improved by the time Apple joins the 5G market, sure to make a 5G iPhone even more popular.
