iPhone 5 users can now use 4G network in the UAE
Life just have got faster for the UAE’s iPhone 5 users - after the country’s two mobile operators yesterday confirmed that the device can now access the UAE’s modern 4G network.
Some phone fans who shelled out for the expensive Apple gadget had been left disappointed to find that they couldn’t use its much-fangled ability to tap into long-term evolution (LTE) networks - popularly dubbed 4G - across the UAE. Well, no more.
Etisalat was first off the mark yesterday with the announcement that its iPhone 5 customers can now connect to its LTE network to enjoy “high-speed applications and processes” and promised speeds of up to 150 Megabits per second.
Rival du soon confirmed that its customers with the device can also now access its LTE network.
Meanwhile, rumours were spreading yesterday that Apple’s iPhone 6 is already being developed.
