Will 5G Affect Mobile App Development?
” The industry buzz surrounding 5G technology and its impact on the next generation of connectivity and services is exhilarating, and that excitement is not only shared among consumers, but with developers, tech-driven enterprises and carriers as well. According to a study conducted by GSMA earlier this year, 5G will account for 15% of the global mobile industry by 2025, with a predicted 1.4 billion devices operating on a 5G network. For the mobile app development industry, the introduction of 5G networks will not only influence the way people use mobile apps, but it will also present new opportunities for developers. Looking ahead, 5G will allow developers to explore, build new platforms and create apps that will offer faster, more personalized user experiences.
This post will specifically look at the benefits of 5G technology that will enhance the functionality of current mobile apps and how these benefits will impact and influence the development of future mobile applications.
What Is 5G?
5G is not a modified version of 4G; instead, it’s an entirely new network infrastructure. 5G holds the potential to revolutionize the way mobile networks function. 5G networks promise to strengthen mobile connectivity and improve the smartphone experience for users by delivering faster data sharing, with connectivity speeds that reach approximately 10 gigabits per second. That is 10 times faster than existing wireless technology. High-speed data transfer will completely change the way people communicate. But for mobile app developers, speed isn’t the only thing that will present new possibilities in how apps are developed. Some other notable benefits include the following:
Delays are a cause for concern among mobile device users, especially when these devices and their networks are being used to make critical decisions in real time. Current 4G networks have an average latency of 50 milliseconds, whereas 5G networks will cut the latency to just one millisecond, leading to less network interference and delays.” Read More
