iPHONE 12 Pros and Cons – Do I need 5G?

The New IPHONE12 comes out and you’re gouged for $1,000. Who on earth needs 5G?

What is 5G?

5G is the 5th generation mobile network. It is a new global wireless standard after 1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G networks.

5G is designed to deliver peak data rates up to 20 Gbps based on IMT-2020 requirements.

5G is based on OFDM (Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing), in other words, the way it is designed to work reduces interference.

5G also uses wider bandwidth technologies such as sub-6 GHz and mmWave.

5G is a unified, more capable air interface.


Lower Latency – Enabling real-time applications like AR/VR.
Higher Speed – More devices can be online at once.
Higher Capacity – Data will move faster, easily exceeding 5 Gbps.
5G is driving global growth.


Currently very limited rollout in the U.S.
It is more difficult for the 5G higher-frequency signal to penetrate through buildings. This is particularly difficult for using 5G in cities.

Infrastructure requires building new 5G specific towers, facing significant push back from communities

Use Cases:

Media – Introduce new capabilities such as high-definition streaming and virtual reality.
Supply Chain Management – Expand use of IoT sensors to increase production, streamline processes, and reduce costs.

Public Safety – Enhance real-time video, secure communications and media sharing.
Manufacturing – Build smart factories with AI, AR, and robotics.
