New iPhones Add LTE Band 34, Band 66 Support, Drop Band 27

iPhone 8

Last week Apple announced a new generation of iPhones: iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. The new iPhone features A11 Bionic chip, Retina HD displays and wireless charging, just to name a few.

All new iPhone models now have additional band 66 support and TDD models now support band 34 as well. Band 66 is also known as AWS. Band 66 adds blocks G-J (AWS-3). T-Mobile launched band 66 in late 2016. AT&T and Verizon also own AWS-3 spectrum.

LTE band 27 (800 MHz) support has been discontinued. iPhone 6 & 7 variants support band 27.
