  • Suppliers are gearing up to supply 5G antenna for iPhone 13
  • Digitimes stated about 60% of iPhone 13 models will have mmWave 5G.
  • The faster mmWave 5G featured iPhones are only available in the U.S

According to the latest news report, suppliers are gearing up for a huge increase in demand for mmWave 5G components from Apple. Apple Inc. has decided to offer faster internet connectivity to more countries.

Previously, we have reported that Apple has started pulling parts for iPhone 13 production before expected launch in September.

Now, the news is confirmed by Digitimes again that Apple will manufacture 60% of the new iPhone 13 models with mmWave 5G feature and will send shipments to some more countries.

Here’s what Digitimes says:

OSATs with SiP (system-in-package) technology, including ASE Technology and ShunSin Technology, are poised to gain from the ever-growing SiP demand for integrating heterogeneous chips for 5G communication, AIoT and automotive electronics applications, according to industry sources… ASE reportedly has landed a major portion of orders for processing AiP modules for new mmWave 5G iPhones set for launch later this year, with such models expected to increase to account for 60% of new iPhone shipments, the sources said.

Apple is offering 5G mmWave from the production of iPhone 12 models that are the best performing iPhones ever and therefore the company is willing to launch the new iPhone 13 to more countries.

The Macrumors also confirmed the news that according to the Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo:

While 5G smartphone shipments increased significantly in 2020, most of them only supported Sub-6 GHz. We believe that mmWave will create more diverse applications than Sub-6 GHz because of the benefits of faster speed and lower latency. The mmWave model of the iPhone 12 only supports the US market, and the shipment allocation of the total iPhone 12 is about 30–35%. We predict that the iPhone 13 mmWave models will be available in more countries (e.g., Canada, Japan, Australia, and major European mobile operators), so the shipment allocation of iPhone 13 mmWave models will increase substantially to 55–60%.

So, more than half of all upcoming iPhones will have features like 5G mmWave and will be shipped to the developed countries like Australia, Canada, Japan, and some other major European mobile operators.

Overall, Apple is expected to boost shipments of the new iPhone 13 this year. While the newest 5G mmWave is ultra-faster than sub-6GHz technology that will attract the iPhone’s users all around the world.
