    Apple Rumour: 4G connectivity coming to iPhone 5 and iPad 3?

According to some of the latest reports, Apple are looking to finally embrace 4G LTE networks to give iPhone 5 and iPad 3 customers a much needed mobile internet speed boost.

Technology rivals such as HTC, Samsung and Motorola started using 4G LTE technology in their devices quite some time ago, but with only some major cities actually supporting 4G connectivity it seems Apple were waiting for the right moment to pounce.

Reports suggest that Apple CEO Tim Cook has already met with Japanese network provider NNT DoCoMo, which could potentially mean a 4G iPad will be arriving in summer 2012, with the 4G-capable iPhone 5 to follow in the autumn.

Despite this rumour, it appears that only the US are really ready for 4G networks at the moment with us folk here in the UK still waiting for current 4G trials to be completed.

The 4G trials here in the UK are taking place in a village in Cornwall and also in London, so with a 2012 release date for the iPhone 5 and iPad 3 it’s unlikely that UK customers will be making use of the new technology anytime soon.

What do you make of this 4G-enabled iPhone and iPad rumour? Let us know in the comments section below.
