Apple is expected to unveil the company’s first-ever 5G iPhone at its highly-anticipated event on Tuesday.
“To set the scene, it is the biggest unveil in probably a decade for [Tim] Cook,” tech industry analyst Dan Ives, managing director of equity research at Wedbush Securities, told ABC News. “I think it’s a once-in-a-decade product cycle around 5G.”
“Going into the launch event, it’s really Apple laying the groundwork for why consumers should upgrade to 5G, and what makes it such a transformational technology upgrade for the iPhone 12,” he added.
The event is slated to kick off at 1 p.m. ET and will be streamed live on Apple’s website. In its only promotional material for the event, Apple teased it would be about “speed” — which seemed to confirm the leaks and reports that the next iPhone will be 5G-enabled.
