By CBR Staff Writer

US based Apple’s new iPhone 5 is expected to support 4G long term evolution (LTE) wireless network globally, including in the US, Europe and Asia, while it may differ among diverse mobile carriers.

Expected to be unveiled in a press event in San Francisco, US on 12 September 2012, the new iPhone also have a slightly larger screen and its new plug will feature a new layout, which expose eight pins on either side of a metal shell.

LTE technology is much more partitioned when compared to the earlier third-generation wireless technology, which makes it trickier to make LTE phones that operate around the world.

Apple’s new iPad, which was released during early 2012, has been one of the first company’s products supporting 4G LTE, while it just had support for the 4G LTE offered by Verizon and AT&T in the US.

Further many lawsuits were filed against Apple in Australia, due to its incompatibility with the country’s 4G network, while was advertised as compatible.

According to International Data (IDC), three countries globally have important numbers of LTE customers, including the US, South Korea and Japan.

Apple revealed that it wasn’t considering working with all carriers’ LTE networks in all countries.
