iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus 4G LTE Compatibility in the Middle East

The iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus was announced last night. Faster processor, better camera and larger screen are just some of the improvements coming on the new iPhone. A lesser celebrated feature is increased LTE compatibility. We’ve mapped out the LTE compatibility for all the iPhone 6 GSM variants as per country showcasing full (Y) or partial LTE compatibility on each of the networks.

The good news is that all networks in UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, and Bahrain should see full compatibility with all 4 models of the iPhone 6 (2 of the iPhone 6 and 2 of iPhone 6 P lus). Saudi Arabia telcos and Omantel in Oman will see partial compatibility with A1549 and A1522.

The iPhone 6 (A1549) and iPhone 6 Plus (A1522) will support LTE bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29.

The iPhone 6 (A1586) and iPhone 6 Plus (A1524) will support LTE bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29, 38, 39, 40, 41.
