Apple investors uneasy over 5G silence as Asian rivals advance

Lack of in-house chips stands in contrast to Huawei

Apple CEO Tim Cook speaks at an Apple product launch event in 2018. He has yet to unveil the company's 5G strategy.

PALO ALTO, U.S. -- Apple has been stubbornly silent about its strategy for fifth-generation wireless technology, which is expected to cause broad-based and disruptive shifts in the technology landscape.

While its rivals like Samsung Electronics of South Korea and China's Huawei Technologies have said they will unveil 5G-ready products this year, the U.S. tech giant said nothing about how it will respond to this transformative technology at its annual shareholders meeting on Friday.
