The powerful capabilities in performance, durability and connectivity on iPhone 12 combined with the high-speed, low-latency connectivity of the AT&T 5G network opens entirely new possibilities on the ground and in the air.

This could mean unleashing the potential of augmented reality (AR) to shape the future of air travel and the passenger experience with capabilities like:

The Apple-designed A14 Bionic — the fastest chip in a smartphone — powers every experience on iPhone 12 while efficiently managing battery life.

Flight attendants can also feel confident knowing that AT&T was recently named the fastest network for iPhones according to Speedtest by Ookla. iPhone 12 can access AT&T’s 5G network, reducing the need to connect to public Wi-Fi hotspots in between flights.

AT&T’s 5G network reaches over 230 million Americans in more than 14,000 cities and towns. The iPhone 12 is also capable of tapping into the AT&T 5G+ network, which is available in parts of 38 cities in the U.S.

Delta utilized the trade-in value of iPhones to enable a cost-effective lease from AT&T Capital Services and Apple Financial Services.

“Our collaboration with Delta Air Lines is proof that connectivity is more than just a means to an end.  We work with Delta to empower their employees and create new 5G-enabled experiences on iPhone 12 to fuel and invigorate the commercial airline industry for years to come.” – Rasesh Patel, Chief Product & Platform Officer, AT&T Business.
