Apple's next generation iPhone will reportedly support LTE in Europe, Asia, and the U.S.A, according to the WSJ. The phone will likely be revealed at the company's September 12th special event.

Apple Inc.'s next iPhone will work on the fastest wireless networks around the world -- including in the U.S., Europe and Asia -- though it is unlikely to be available on every carrier, people familiar with the matter said.

Notably, there are an estimated 36 LTE bands around the world, compared to 22 bands for 3G. Building a phone that supports multiple bands is possible but difficult.

"It's like patchwork quilt in terms of spectrum," said Bill Davidson, senior vice president of Qualcomm. "It will be impractical to have all of the bands."

No word yet on which bands will be supported.

As long as the iPhone 5 supports 170/2100 MHz or just has AWS then I will be happy, i"ve been using every iPhone ive owned on T-Mobile (I see the iPhone as a 2G data only capable device), why T-Mobile just doesn't pull their dicks out of eachothers assholes and add 1900-fucking-MHz already I have no clue, but i'm beginning to feel like we wont see 3G on the iPhone through T-Mobile until 5G is available lol
