    Apple’s iPhone 11 range is, arguably, 2019’s best smartphone line-up in what has been a very disappointing and, at times, very stupid year. But it still has one massive shortcoming and now we know what is going to plug it.

    In a new research note attained by the ever-excellent 9to5Mac, acclaimed Apple insider Mind-Ch Kuo has reiterated his claim that Apple will introduce 5G across the 2020 iPhone rangewhile revealing it will not be any old 5G implementation.

    Kuo explains that Apple will equip all its upcoming 5G iPhones with support for both mmWave and sub-6GHz bands. A move which is particularly well suited to the wide variety of bands used in 5G installations across the US, and something which future proofs the phone as the next-gen network continues to roll out.

    Building on this, Kuo also explains that Apple will introduce superior Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) antenna designs in the 2020 iPhones to boost cell phone signal. LCP first appeared in the iPhone X, but Apple has only ever fitted a single LCP unit whereas the 2020 iPhones will have three.

    Such a move would see Apple continue its welcome focus on nailing the basics. This year, the iPhone 11 series made class-leading cameraand battery life improvements but iPhones continue to have cellular performance issues, which may now become a thing of the past.

    Furthermore, this is the start. Thanks to insiders, including Kuo, we already know how Apple will change the 2020 iPhone’s design, offer new screen sizes, introduce 120Hz ProMotion displays, ditch the Lightning port, reintroduce Touch ID and add a long-range 3D camera.

    Kuo’s big warning is Apple may introduce higher prices to compensate for all these new features. But given the large Black Friday iPhone discounts available right now, it looks like we won’t have to wait long after Apple launches these phones to make some major savings.

    I am waiting for 2020 iPhone, I'd like to see the notch completely removed or should be made very thin. They should introduce 90 Hertz screen refresh rate and better display.

    LOL Android smartphone brands already have this and much more. iPhone's are always playing catch up. You are paying an arm and a leg and are not even getting full premium package.

    I already have an android phone (given from my workplace) but personally I prefer using iOS. It may not be as versatile as an android but I found IOS to be more intuitive and more user-friendly.

    iOS has a more fluid user experience no doubt, but that is the only positive I have to say about this platform. I use Mac OS and that is something I am very fond of.

    The only and best solution is to buy new phone each year.

    My 1.5 years old looks outdated today.

    I used to me a hardcore Apple fan, but ever since Snowdon I was stuck with either iOS or Android. Now waiting eagerly for Harmony OS to come out.
