Apple has released an iOS update in late March, and guess what happened? After installing iOS 12.2 updates, an icon of “5GE” appeared on the smartphones of AT&T customers instead of LTE. However, what’s the story behind this? Do our smartphones really have 5G on them? There’s been a lot of questions roaming around on the internet.
About the 5GE on iPhone
We’ve gathered some information about the whole scenario and found out that AT&T has upgraded its LTE networks and have given it a 5GE name. According to AT&T, this is not the actual 5G network that many are waiting for but is a 4G type network that is upgraded for faster network speed.
Is AT&T working on 5G?
So, if you’re thinking that suddenly you’ve set your foot in next-generation 5G technology, you’re wrong. AT&T is working on their 5G technology and it was just a pre-announcement, but your smartphones don’t have 5G at this moment. AT&T is providing real 5G technology to some of their costumes in Houston, but they didn’t properly announce this evolution to every user.
Well played AT&T, but we’re afraid that people will start losing faith in your marketing tactics. We hope that you guys will come up with a better idea of marketing next time rather than rebranding your old technology.
