Apple Lays Out Plans for the use of Multiple Millimeter Wave Antennas in Future iPhones with 5G
The US Patent & Trademark Office has published a patent application from Apple that relates to possible next-gen millimeter wave antennas for future iPhones. The iPhone 12 Pro today offers a single side-firing 5G millimeter wave antenna window. In the future, Apple may integrate multiple millimeter wave antennas, including face, side and rear-firing millimeter wave antennas and more. The new array of millimeter-wave antennas are designed to cooperate with each other so as to provide superior 5G millimeter-wave communications in various use cases.
