Unfortunately, just in line with previous rumors circulating the web, Digitimes reaffirms that 4G LTE connectivity will not come on this year’s expected refresh to the iPhone. Who’s to blame? Reportedly, it’s silicon maker Qualcomm struggling to get sufficient chip yields to integrate LTE radios. But it’s also Apple’s own statement about the design compromises related to installing LTE on the phone, that hint at a 4G iPhone hitting shelves not earlier than 2012. But while September is still way ahead, in just a couple of days Apple is expected to unveil something marking the anniversary of its retail stores, so stay tuned.
