iPhone 5G to support both mmWave and sub-6GHz bands

  iPhone 5G to support both mmWave and sub-6GHz bands Apple has never attempted to be the first company to support the next-gen, speedier, wireless data transfer standard. A new research note from Ming-Chi Kuo seen by 9to5Mac claims that the 5G iPhones will support both mmWave and sub-6GHz bands. These are 5G frequency versions in use in several markets around the world, and the 5G networks of the future will work on a combination of mmWave and sub-6GHz bands. Phones will, therefore, have to support both these frequency types, and the 5G iPhone shouldn’t be the only 2020 device to come with mmWave and sub-6GHz compatibility.

Apple has launched a new replacement program for its iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR smart battery cases, after charging issues were discovered in some devices. According to the company, some of the cases may have a problem where they won’t charge when plugged into power, or may fail to charge your iPhone. If your model is affected, then Apple or one of its authorized service providers will replace it free of charge.

At $129, the battery cases aren’t cheap, but their tight integration with the iPhone means that they come with a few advantages. iOS will display the charge level of your battery case in its top notification bar, for example, and it can also pass data through the battery case’s Lightning port. If your case is eligible for a replacement, then it might be worth taking it into an Apple Store regardless of whether it’s having problems. You’ll get a newer model, and there should be less chance of it developing problems in the future.

iPhone SE successor to go into mass production next month .
According to a report published by Bloomberg, Apple's upcoming low-cost iPhone will enter mass production in just a few weeks. Back in 2016, Apple launched the iPhone SE as a more affordable alternative to the recently released iPhone 6 series. Despite releasing a new handset or two every year since the SE came out, the model has had no successor -- that is, until possibly this year. For a few months now, rumors have been circulating about the launch of the SE 2 (official name currently unknown) in 2020; now Bloomberg is reporting that Apple Inc.
