Verizon, Apple holding enterprise event focused on 5G & iPhone 12
On Nov. 19, Verizon is holding a virtual enterprise event with Apple focused on how business customers can fully utilize 5G and the new iPhone 12 lineup in existing workflows.
During the event for global enterprise customers, Verizon said it would unveil a "special offer for enterprises on the iPhone 12 lineup and introduce new options for enterprise 5G with Verizon." Verizon Business CEO Tami Erwin will be joined by Apple VP of Markets, App, and Services Susan Prescott at the event. It's slated for 1 p.m. Eastern (10 a.m. Pacific) on Thursday, Nov. 19.
The company said the event will showcase how enterprise customers can "use new iPhone 12 lineup and Verizon's 5G Ultra Wideband to power innovative solutions for industries like manufacturing, field service and healthcare." Because of its focus on enterprise and business customers, it's probable that there won't be any consumer-facing announcements at the event.
All of Apple's iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models support 5G networks, with the U.S. variants sporting compatibility with both mmWave and sub-6GHz 5G networks. It's also worth noting that Verizon was featured prominently during Apple's iPhone 12 launch event, so it's likely that this new endeavor is just carrying on that partnership.
Registrations are required, and those interested can sign up and find more details about the event on Verizon's enterprise website.
