"We've innovated further on custom-designed antennas and radio components," announced Kaiann Drance, Apple vice president of iPhone Product Marketing, "that let us add more bands so iPhone 13 works on 5G with the latest speeds and in more places."

"The world is moving quickly to 5G," she continued. "We're collaborating with more carrier partners for the best call quality performance coverage and battery life."

"By the end of the year we will double 5G support to over 200 carriers in 60 countries and regions," said Drance. "That means you can benefit from 5g in more places than ever."

    I fell asleep during the Keynote. The only thing I’m looking forward to is the 1TB hard drive.

    And 3.5Gbps? Yeah. Right. I have a 12 Pro Max and if I go above 100Mbps, I'm feeling good. Lol

    Nothing wrong with an evolution in tech. Hey, 120 fps is new to iPhones, and interesting. It might compel me to upgrade.

    For the average user 120 isn’t really needed. I mean it’s nice to have but to pay to upgrade not so much.

    FYI: an AT&T salesman informed me the company's [non-mmWave] 5G service does uploads using LTE. 5G is download only.

    When I didn’t have LTE speed as insufficient? 
    Often the downloads from iCloud are far hollow even LTE speeds. How 5G should be faster, if the downloads will be still at lower speeds than maximum possible (theoretical) speed?
