Apart from 5G, Francesca also spoke about iPhone 12’s 4K HDR video recording with Dolby Vision, which opens up brand new opportunities for creative customers. She explained how Apple worked with its partners and carriers to work on components, and infrastructure to ensure that users can get the best and most efficient 5G connectivity. The company also worked on the software side including the firmware, system layer and operating system to enable high definition FaceTime calls, gaming, and live augmented reality experiences.
iJustine and Francesca discussed that experiences like downloading music and movies will be faster than ever with 5G. Low latency connectivity will also allow for improved and competitive gaming, such as what is possible with League of Legends Wild Rift. iPhone 12 also allows for faster tethering via its Personal Hotspot feature, which is now four times faster than before, enabling users to utilize the fast 5G connectivity on other devices.
In the end, Francesca spoke about how Apple has worked closely with many developers and that new opportunities will be unlocked. 5G networking will also allow enterprises to setup their own fast private networks, which should work well with any of the new iPhone 12 models.
