Apple specifically referenced using the 28GHz and 39GHz bands for its testing, which the FCC initially approved for commercial 5G last year.


“Apple Inc. seeks to assess cellular link performance in direct path and multipath environments between base station transmitters and receivers using this spectrum,” the application states.


“These assessments will provide engineering data relevant to the operation of devices on wireless carriers’ future 5G networks,” the company added.


Apple’s testing of next-generation 5G was first reported earlier this year, but it’s now confirmed thanks to the release of the FCC application. The company’s end goal is, of course, to improve cellular performance for iPhones and other connected devices.
