Mobile 5G internet is still a dream for most, but Apple could help make it a reality next year.

That's what TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo thinks. He said Monday in a research note that two of Apple's three iPhones released in 2020 will be 5G-compatible for the first time.

Kuo's note said Apple will release three OLED iPhones next year, backing up an earlier DigiTimes report. If you want 5G, you'll need to get the 5.4-inch or the 6.7-inch model; the 6.1-inch model will still only go up to LTE, per the research note.

In clearer terms, that means Apple will basically do what it did last year. The company will release two higher-end phones like the XS and XS Max, while a more affordable option brings up the rear like the XR. If those sizes are accurate, it means the successor to the XS will be slightly smaller and the successor to the XS Max will be slightly bigger. Read more...
