To some analysts, though, the lack of LTE in the iPhone 5 isn't a huge problem.
"It's too early to push LTE now; it's too much cost and too much of a sacrifice on battery life and it doesn't give you any great advantage at this point," says independent analyst Chris Umiastowski, formerly with TD Newcrest.Still, for Apple fans who must have the latest and greatest, the LTE 4G delay will not come as pleasant news. And unlike Jobs, who would somehow find a way to turn this news positive, Cook could have a harder time smoothing it over. --Written by Scott Moritz in New York.
