No 5g radio

Why are there no 5g radios in the newest iPhones. Even the s10 has a 5g variant.

A lot of reasons.

5G coverage is still limited. It won't be truly widespread in the US until about this time next year, when Apple is expected to put 5G in an iPhone.

A solid, practical 5G phone for the US would support both mmWave and sub-6 GHz bands, and not even Samsung has been able to launch a phone like that. No one has. Apple would never launch a 5G phone that can only do mmWave 5G, (as Samsung did with the S10 5G and Note10 5G for Verizon).

Thanks Rich
I read your two articles on 5G a few months ago and really appreciate your explanations to us 66+ year olds. I did purchase a iPhone X , two years ago, with the OLED Screen, and find it amazing. With the new iPhone 11 Pro OLED Max, the differences between the these two are Negligible. One can easily wait for this 5G Technology to mature, and the wireless systems to build out. Some people are never happy with what ever they have. I'm sure Apple will "get it right" the first time they introduce a 5G phone.

Again thank you over the last 10+ years for your Phone Scoop Web Site
