Apple will be helped by falling 5G hardware costs (you could see limited 5G support on $250 Android phones, Kuo said), more resources thanks to the Intel modem business acquisition and expectations from both carriers and customers. At that stage, 5G may be treated as a given in the iPhone’s price class — and carriers might not offer as many subsidies without 5G support. read more

It is also an example of seeking a balance between refusing a Huawei ban but working to create a regulatory environment to manage risks.
