From now on, all of Verizon’s new smartphones will be able to connect to the carrier’s 4G LTE network, the company’s chief technical officer said in an interview with Dow Jones Newswires.Assuming Apple plays along with Verizon’s plan, that means the next iPhone will likely have 4G LTE, just like the new iPad.
