Four 5G iPhones Could Be Coming In 2020

Apple skipped 5G on its iPhones this year and we can’t say we blame them. The tech is still relatively new and Apple is usually one to prefer using tried and tested technology (it took the company a while to adopt 4G as well). However, come 2020, Apple is expected to finally embrace 5G technology.

This was previously predicted by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who suggested that Apple could launch up to three 5G iPhones in 2020, but now according to Wedbush Securities analyst, Dan Ives, he is suggesting that Apple might launch as many as four 5G iPhones in 2020. We’re not sure what the fourth iPhone could be, so it seems strange that he is predicting that number.

2020 is expected to bring the successor to this year’s iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max. It is also rumored to see Apple launch the iPhone SE 2, but given that the iPhone SE 2 is said to be a budget handset, we’re not sure if the company would be bothered to introduce 5G in it, or maybe they will in an attempt to make it more appealing to customers.

In any case, take it with a grain of salt for now as it is a bit too early to tell what Apple has planned. Recent rumors have also suggested that Apple is pushing to launch their own 5G modems that could find its way to the 2022 iPhones.

‘Immature’ Tech Is Why The Google Pixel 4 Doesn’t Have 5G

It was rumored that Google could be looking to launch a 5G Pixel smartphone this year, but when the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL were announced, there was no mention of 5G at all. This has led to some to wonder about Google adopting the technology, and it turns out, Google has a pretty good reason.

Speaking to PCMag, Google’s VP of product management, Brian Rakowski, was quoted as saying, “It will get there, but now is not the right time to buy a 5G phone. Both from a deployment perspective—the coverage is not broadly available in enough places for enough users to benefit from it—[and] from a hardware and phone perspective—it’s still power hungry [and] immature.”

However, this doesn’t mean that Google won’t adopt it. Rakowski adds, “There’s work to be done there. We’re tracking it closely and we’ll bring a phone out when we feel like it’s a good time for users, but now’s not the time.” This seems to be similar to what Apple is doing as well, where the company has held off on launching 5G iPhones for now, although we heard that it could come in 2020.

We get where Google is coming and to be honest, we’d much rather have a smartphone that doesn’t suck up battery life due to 5G. Will Google launch a 5G Pixel in 2020? We guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

AirPods Pro To Arrive End Of October With $260 Price Tag

For a while now we have heard the rumors that Apple could be working on a new set of AirPods that could feature active noise cancellation. Then within the iOS 13.2 beta, it looked like the rumors were confirmed when a new set of AirPods icons were spotted, hinting at the device’s impending launch.

Now according to a report from China Economic Daily, it seems that the new AirPods could be launching soon. The report claims that the new devices will be known as the AirPods Pro, which seems to be in line with Apple’s new naming scheme where they are giving their products the “Pro” moniker.

The report also corroborates the claims that it will feature noise canceling, and it also hints that it could be more expensive as it might come priced at $260. For context, the current-gen AirPods are priced at $159, or $199 if you wanted the version with a wireless charging case. At $260, it represents a $100 jump and we’re not sure if Apple might be pricing themselves out of the market.

The general consensus is that the AirPods are useful and convenient, they aren’t necessarily the best-sounding set of earphones, so to pay $260 just for the added noise cancellation feature does make it seem a tad pricey. Take it with a grain of salt, but if true, we should have the official details soon enough.
