In case you don't know Apple yet. they are not always the first to do things but they do a good job pushing it to the mass. So please don't go there with the 5G's been around for many years when honestly who's been using 5G for the past 2 years?

Do you have the iphones to give real numbers then? Are you working for a company that test them or something?
Typical apple boy will give his all to protect a brand known for antenna problems from the past to present.
Buy the charger.

You say that apple doesn't use "real 5G" cause the speeds were calculated in the lab?
And you claim that iPhones can only reach 4G speeds with 5G. But where did you get that info from? That's right. You don't have iPhones yet, how do you know about their network speeds?
Typical fanbois like you will always rank the apple you loath at the absolutely lowest expectations. And do that without any proof whatsoever.
Anonymous, 17 Oct 2020There is no other phone as beautiful the iPhone! Right that being your Opinion...to the rest of us these are just horrendously ugly
Amazing renders! The iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 Pro both have the same huge and as ugly a notches as the cheaper iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini but surprisingly, because of the darker, more transparent wallpaper of the more expensive models, it's as if the cheaper models look a lot more ugly with a lot bigger unsightly notches when there really isn't much difference appearance-wise. This clear manipulation of wallpapers by Apple is clear signal Apple wants users to shell out more money for the expensive models because their renders look less ugly with less visible notch.

I don't think apple wants to let go of the notch until they develop a good under display solution. They probably see it as a replacement of the home button, a physical attribute that makes their phones stand out from the rest.

5g mm Wave expected speed is 1.8 Gbit/s.
At best iphone will achieve 100-400 Mbit/s.
Having the same phone for 5-6 year woow like aren't people ready to buy iphone every year are they poor or something? Why not have the latest and greatest every year? Make apple some cash!
All I can say is you took their bate really good. So there you go apple will win some money, which actually go to Samsung, China and Sony for producing the most important parts of the phone.
Buy the charger.

"no real 5G" is implying apple is implementing fake 5G which it isn't.
5G not available in most parts of the world is the carrier's problem.
Anyways, 5G is gonna be important during the 2021 times.
Some people I know keep their iPhone as long as they can until something really makes them upgrade. So, they hold onto their iPhone for 5-6 years, which is about the software update window.
By then, 5G will be integral.
Future-proofing might not be important to people who always buy the latest and greatest, but it is to many people.

The point I was trying to make is that 5g shouldn't be a selling point when you can't really get the benefit of it because you can not be sitting near the Athena to get reception. On top of that the speeds that they show are LAB testing so real world results are not going to be even close. When someone comes and repeats that a phone is going to have 5g I would assume that it is going to have 5g not "you will be switching from 5g to 4g depending on usage". Like why do you repeat 5g more than 40 time and than have to additionally explain that "oh well it doesn't actually work that good and it is power hungry and it is mostly unavailable.
But hey if you are a die hard apple fanboy who is obviously NOT seeing the bigger picture the marketing strategies to get people to buy something that they don't really need just to boost their egos and make the appearance of "high status".
The only thing I do admire they for now tho is that they can make all the stupid people give them all the money they got no matter what. You'll give them your money even if they start selling paperclips. So yeah I wish for them to get to $4 billion for selling the same phone 4 years in a row. Which is pure genius move 140 IQ play for them. So dont hesitate go and buy.
Ps. Don't forget to buy the battery charger.
Wow thanks to this 3d models they all look differant and the design is a massive upgrade to the iphoneX
Is this charging port bigger than the last one? Oo

He just tweaks the products each year, and thinks of way to make more money out of Apple's blind followers. Example, the new Magsafe system. Clever for attaching phone to car mount, but save £50 on a MgSafe charger and buy a £15 angled wireless charging dock off Amazon (like the 5 we have here at home around the house) and your phone will naturally line up with the charging coil(s).
Sammy, 16 Oct 2020Can't decide between the black, blue and white for the iPhone 12!#metoo
This year isn't the kind of the year to upgrade considering most of the world couldn't work. I would rather collect Air Jordans. They can last for years. At least the ones without polyurethane that crumble (II-VI, VIII, IX).
Most shoes can be worn for decades. Just find a cobbler to glue them back on. While most gadgets really are planned obsolescence. We have to keep buying a new one every few years because how slow the UI experience got.
Pixel 5 and iPhone 12 just doesn't look enticing to upgrade even if say your current phone is 2-3 years old.

Had Steve Jobs not passed away, I am certain this version iphone would not have notches. Steve would have found a way to rid them way before anyone else. He would have pushed r&d to develop, and not wait another year or two like everyone else.
