iPhone with LTE Being Tested?

Posted by at 11:06 am on August 15, 2011

At least one carrier is already testing an iPhone with LTE (4G) capability, a new report claims. The carrier in question is said to have an internal iOS test build, within which is a special PLIST file for LTE networks. It’s not certain if LTE will be supported in the next iPhone, anticipated in September or October, or if the testing is for hardware arriving the following year instead.

The second scenario is the most likely of the pair. Most other reports have pointed to Apple skipping LTE with the 2011 iPhone, even as the number of rival smartphones with the technology continues to increase. Apple is probably waiting for planned chipsets which will merge 3G and 4G support, saving space and power. Because of present power requirements, many modern LTE-ready smartphones can only run for a few hours at time.
