Senior management from the telco were said to have met with Apple CEO, Tim Cook, last month at Apple’s Cupertino HQ.
 
4G is the replacement to 3G wireless broadband and Telstra has already confirmed 4G enabled smartphones will come in the first quarter 2012, with Optus and Vodafone making headway towards its dual band LTE service, due next year.

To date, iPhone including the most recent 4S lacked LTE technology, despite its presence on rival devices like HTC and Samsung, due to concerns about (already questionable) battery life and a lack of chips appropriate for its needs, according to Mac Rumours.

However, the Qualcomm LTE chips comming in 2012 could solve some of iPhone’s 4G woes.
