Forget 5G! Apple is hiring experts for 6G iPhones

Apple is hiring experts for 6G iPhones

Think that 5G is as good as it gets? Think again! You can look forward to a 6G iPhone – something that Apple is definitely already looking towards, as it has started recruiting experts in 6G technology. 

The move is understandable. Apple was very late to the party with 5G, as it wasn't until late 2020 with the iPhone 12 / iPhone 12 Mini / iPhone 12 Pro / iPhone 12 Pro Max that the Cupertino-based company embraced the cutting-edge wireless technology.
