With Apple gearing up to launch the next generation iPhone, one of the main features expected to be included in it will be LTE connectivity.

The author states that as far as LTE connectivity is concerned, smartphone manufacturers have gathered patents over the years in order to withstand patent lawsuits. Dillet goes on to state, “As Apple has not released a 4G phone yet, it is late to the game. Competitors want to take advantage of the situation and prevent Apple from releasing a 4G LTE iPhone.”
