LTE Advanced won't be available for iPhone XS

https://newsroom.sprint.com/quarterly-network-update.htm
https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2018/11/06/sprint-ups-mobile-hotspot-limits-50-gb-launches-faste...

I was excited to read those articles in hopes of getting better cellular speed.  I called Sprint tech support and two people (one was a supervisor) told me that my new iPhone XS Max did not have the radio/hardware to get LTE Advanced.  I was shocked since the iPhone XS was just released 2 months ago.   Is this true?

Re: LTE Advanced won't be available for iPhone XS

Sounds like IPhone XS is supported. Can someone confirm? Also is there a list of cities that have LTE Advanced?

“Sprint says most of the latest “flagship” devices it sells -- including Apple's iPhone XS and XS Max; Samsung's Galaxy S9, S9 and Note 9 and LG's V30+, G7 ThinQ and V40 ThinQ -- are compatible with the faster network, which offers customers speeds up to twice as fast as before.”

Re: LTE Advanced won't be available for iPhone XS

For the present, LTE-Advanced isn't enabled on any Apple devices but we anticipate that it will in the future. I don't have a date to provide for that to happen but when it does, we will also have a list of the models which can support it to share with you. I can't promise but it's my understanding that most newer phones will be capable. I can't say for sure yes, but it seems more likely that no, given how new the model is.

It would be nice to put our name on a list with our email or phone number to be notified when LTE ADVANCED is available for IOS devices.

 

Please let me know how we can do this so I do not have to keep checking or missing it entirely.

There's not a list like that. Keep your eye on the newsroom for updates. Sprint.com/Newsroom

Re: LTE Advanced won't be available for iPhone XS

not sure why you would have to keep checking since it would come across to your phone as a update from Apple....just as any other update is pushed to it.

Re: LTE Advanced won't be available for iPhone XS

Any news about LTE Advance capability on Sprint iPhone XS ?  When can we expect it?

 

I have noticed VOLTE has been implemented in a few places I have traveled and seems to be working pretty well.

 

Especially since Sprint advertised it during the Super Bowl today !!!!!!

Re: LTE Advanced won't be available for iPhone XS

Any news ?   This is ridiculous that we have to wait this long for a feature that every other carrier has already implemented.  Please advise

The updates will be posted to the Newsroom, when more information is available.
