Apple Joins Alliance That Seeks to Develop 6G Technology

As 5G takes hold, slowly but surely on the planet - France is still waiting patiently for it - it seems that the tech companies concerned have no intention of waiting before considering the next generation. After 5G, it will logically be 6G. When? How? 'Or' What? Why? What objectives? Apple has decided to participate in this great adventure, this time from the start. The Cupertino company, which has just marketed its very first 5G smartphones, has joined an alliance dedicated to 6G.
