Picking a cellular provider for your phone can be a daunting choice. Although coverage from one carrier might be great for you in one location, that won’t necessarily be the same for someone in a different location.
Cellular versions of Apple's sixth-generation iPad mini don't support mmWave, a faster 5G protocol that's predominately used in the United States, at all. As for the new iPhone 13, it still restricts mmWave 5G support to the US just like its predecessor, the iPhone 12 family.

Last year, Apple introduced the iPhone 12 lineup. At the same time, the company also confirmed the handsets would feature 5G connectivity for faster cellular service. They did that alongside Verizon, with the carrier touting its network coverage and speeds. What they did not do, though, is tell folks that keeping 5G on would noticeably impact battery life on your new phone.
According to a bill of materials analysis conducted by research firm Counterpoint, Apple's latest iPhone 12 costs the company 21 percent more than an equivalent iPhone 11, or nearly a one-fifth difference in terms of components cost between this and last year's models.
