So now that the new iPad has beed released and Apple’s next undertaking as a company is now going to be focused on the next iPhone.

According to research notes obtained by AppleInsider, investment firm Barclays said that Apple might use Qualcomm’s “MDM9615″ LTE chip which will support both voice and data connections on 4G networks.
The said chip is different used by Apple for the new iPad which was the “MDM9600.” But the difference will not affect both data and voice but just the data connection. The next iPhone is also expected to be released as a world device like the iPhone 4S. The iPhone 4S in case you’re not aware can support various 4G LTE networks worldwide.
