Apple has canceled its radio frequency application in Korea for the iPhone 5 and has reapplied just ahead of the planned Nov. 2 release of the gadget here.
According to the National Radio Research Agency, Apple made an error in applying for SK Telecom's third-generation frequency of 60 MHz for the iPhone 5 and wrote 40 MHz instead. It has now corrected the mistake and resubmitted the documents.
Amid a global shortage of the new model, Apple has not yet announced the list of countries that will get the third batch. Industry watchers expect that the iPhone 5 will be later than planned.
