Research: many iPhone owners believe their smartphones are 5G

Global Wireless Solutions has done an interesting research in the US related to 5G and Apple.

5,000 iPhone owners took part in the survey, and the questions they were asked were related to fifth-generation networks. As a result, it turned out that almost half (49%) of those surveyed believe that their smartphones support 5G.

In fact, Apple does not yet have a single smartphone with support for fifth generation networks. The first should be the models of the iPhone 12 series, but they have not even been presented yet – the official presentation is scheduled for October 13.

In addition, 29% of users do not know whether their smartphones support 5G or not, and 24% are not sure about this. Also, 38% do not know at all whether the operator in their region offers access to this technology.

The study found that 54% of users are attracted to 5G by higher data rates, about 16% expect 5G to improve the quality of high-definition video calls, 13 expect improvements in video streaming quality, and only 8% associate 5G networks with games.
