Yesterday, The Wall Street Journal reported that Apple maybe looking to create a radio streaming service to rival current services like Pandora. Today, WSJ is reports that Apple’s upcoming iPhone will support 4G LTE networks around the world. Citing people familiar with the matter, the report notes that the next-generation iPhone will offer compatibility with 4G LTE networks in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. However, the functionality may not be available to all countries and carriers at launch.
Apple Inc.’s 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, people familiar with the matter said.
It isn’t likely to work with all carriers’ LTE networks in all countries, the people said, though it wasn’t clear which would be left out.
The first Apple device to support high-speed 4G LTE networks was the third-generation iPad, which supported AT&T and Verizon’s network, but did not work internationally. Apple is expected to reveal the next-generation iPhone on September 12th.
