Apple iPhone 5: So what's new?

Here's a first look at what you can expect from the iPhone 5 and more information over the LTE controversy

Article comments

Here's a first look at what you can expect from the long-awaited Apple iPhone 5, as well as more information over the LTE capabilities controversy and how it will affect users in Europe. 


4G LTE capabilities in the iPhone 5

The new iPhone 5 supports many LTE frequencies, but mostly North American markets and advanced Asian markets. There will be 2 phones running on the GSM band, as well as one for CDMA, including GSM roaming. However, the 800MHz and 2.6GHz bands will be left out, which are crucial for LTE in Europe. Out of all the UK mobile operators, only EE has the 1800MHz band, which is carried by Apple on 2 of the phones. The rest of the operators have to bid for 800MHz and 2.6GHz in the Ofcom 4G auction, which will not be carried by the 3 current iPhone 5 models. UK users will have to either switch to EE, use 3G on their own networks, or wait for Ofcom to sort things out.
