Self-driving cars. Robotic surgeries. Toothbrushes that detect when you’re sick.
This is the future 5G technology promises in less than a decade’s time; internet connections so fast they’ll support an entirely new way of life.

Apple’s first 5G iPhone is still two years away. That’s according to a new report, which says the iPhone maker won’t be 5G ready until 2020.
That would put Apple a year behind some of its Android rivals which have said they plan to have 5G phones in 2019.
The news, which comes from Fast Company, cites a single source said to have “knowledge of Apple’s plans.”
