Apple’s Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook told investors last month, “the company will not use the early LTE chipset, and first-generation LTE mobile phone chipdesign requires manufacturers to make compromises, however, some compromise is we can not accept.”
Though not a particular surprise, Digitime’s sources claim that the LTE-enabled “iPhone 4S” is unlikely to launch until 2012.
Apple is likely to delay the launch of its LTE-enabled iPhones to 2012, said the sources, noting that the industry had also long been skeptical about the launch of LTE iPhones in 2011 as the implementation of LTE networks has not yet matured.
Digitimes’ report confusingly refers to the 2012 iPhone as the “4S” which the name also given to expect 2011 iPhone. In a separate report Digitimes says that Apple is already lowering iPhone 4 orders in the second quarter of 2011 in anticipation of the new model in September.
Apple is widely expected to launch a new iPhone around September this year, but most have expected that support for 4G networks would likely wait until 2012. Other reports have also said that the proper LTE chips simply won’t be ready for production this year.
Anyway, no matter how the noted “iPhone 4S” is designed, the files formats( video, audio, picture, etc) should be similar.
There is no need to change your Apple apps to the App users of Apple, said Tim Cook, Apple Chief Operating Officer.
