WSJ: Apple’s next iPhone will have LTE support

According to the latest report from the Wall Street Journal the next-generation iPhone – possibly called the iPhone 5 – will support LTE. That is certainly great news for us Canadians as several of our carriers have their LTE networks up and running, namely Rogers, Bell, TELUS, MTS, Virgin and Fido.

The WSJ’s “people familiar with the matter” said that the “next iPhone will work on the fastest wireless networks around the world—including in the U.S., Europe and Asia—though it is unlikely to be available on every carrier.” No word on Canada, but can’t see us not getting the LTE version.

News of an LTE-enabled iPhone has been rumoured for some time, so as usual, until Apple officially announces the specs, consider this still speculation. Apple is holding a media event on Wednesday, September 12th where they’re expected to unveil a redesigned iPhone that is thinner, sport a 4-inch display, and be more powerful than previous versions.
