AT&T will require iPhone 14, Galaxy S22 and Z flip to use full capacity of 5G

AT&T has announced earlier in 2022, a new 5G midband launch at 3.45 Ghz, the point is that for Apple enthusiasts only the recently announced iPhone 14 will be able to access it.

The original AT&T promise was to include iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 However, according to a report by CNET states that from iphone side, only iPhone 14, iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro as well as the iPhone 14 Pro Max will support this middle band.

It means that Apple 5G devices launched prior to 2022 will be locked out from AT&T’s new spectrum purchase.

A new list provided reveals that the carrier’s compatibility right now is constrained just to some of its higher-end flagship phones and hotspots. These devices include:

  • Samsung’s Galaxy S22, S22 Plus and S22 Ultra
  • Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 4
  • Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 4
  • Apple’s iPhone 14, 14 Plus, 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max

The Operator is planning to use both 3.45GHz and C-band to create a stronger midband network nationwide, something those with incompatible phones won’t be able to experience.

Apple specifically uses 5G (Sub-6GHz and mmWave) in the product lines for iPhone 12, iPhone 13, and iPhone 14. iPhone 12, iPhone 13 as well as iPhone 14. Sub-6Ghz refers specifically to frequencies below six gigahertz. It is usually referring to data transmission in bands that range between 3.3 GHz and 4.2 GHz and includes this new midband, that provides the best balance between speed and coverage.

It is worth to mention that the auction for AT&T resulted in $9.1 billion to acquire the right to use this 3.45 Ghz frequency within its network.
