TAIPEI -- All iPhones released next year will be 5G-capable, including Apple's first revamp of its budget handset in two years, as the company looks to boost sales of a product that still accounts for more than half of its revenue.

Apple will not introduce any new 4G models next year, sources familiar with the matter told Nikkei Asia, and will instead begin selling a version of its cheapest handset -- the popular iPhone SE -- that is compatible with the next-generation communication standard.
