SAN FRANCISCO: Apple announced Tuesday it was launching new iPhones using 5G, the latest smartphone maker to adapt to the new-generation, high-speed wireless networks. "We are going to introduce 5G across our entire lineup of iPhone models," Apple chief executive Tim Cook said at a streamed launch event from the company's headquarters in California.

"Today is the beginning of a new era for iPhone."

The new models include the redesigned iPhone 12 - successor to the top-selling iPhone 11 launched last year - which will start at $799. A smaller iPhone 12 mini with a 5.4 inch display will start at $699. The new lineup of iPhones was expected to ignite a surge in interest in smartphone upgrades to take advantage of the faster networks.

Apple joins other handset makers including Samsung and Huawei in introducing smartphones taking advantage of the growing 5G footprint around the world, which could open up new markets and technologies.
