It goes without saying that the newly minted iPhone 5, iPod touch 5G and iPod nano from Apple will be arriving real soon, so why not have them pay the mandatory visit over at the FCC before that? After all, Apple has this long standing tradition of timing their FCC filings for their new collection of shiny, highly sought after wireless mobile devices to appear upon the moment of announcement, which presumably is for information security’s sake. There is no reason to break such a tradition right now, so the iPhone 5, iPod touch 5G and iPod nano are being cuddled and cooed over by the folks at the FCC at the moment.
Apple did have their work cut out for them beforehand though, developing separate iPhone 5 models in order to cater for each LTE carrier that it supports, in addition to the standard CDMA and GSM filings. Throw in 5GHz Wi-Fi support into the mix and you’ve got quite the technological soup here.
