Apple’s secret weapon for iPhone 13 deployment isn’t such a big secret: It’s 5G. More specifically, it’s the accelerating adoption and deployment of 5G services and infrastructure that will stimulate demand for Apple’s smartphones. Here’s why:
Infrastructure for 5G is still being deployed. In the US, not every region has equal access to the tech, though many urban areas do.
Outside the US you see similar disparities across nations, with pockets of availability. That means there is plenty of room for growth.
As those unserved areas become served areas, more people may be interested in a 5G iPhone.
But even in areas in which 5G is already available, there’s still a huge upside.
