New Delhi: As India moves into the 5G era, Apple announced on Tuesday that 5G cellular support has been enabled for new iPhone 14, iPhone 13, iPhone SE and iPhone 12 lineups in India.
To use a 5G connection with Reliance Jio and Airtel on an iPhone 12 model or newer, customers need to update to the iOS 16.2 update which also comes with other numerous features.
Apple enabled 5G in its iOS 16 Beta software program week last month for select iPhone users in the country.
Apple Airtel and Jio customers who participated in the iOS 16 Beta software program were able to try out 5G.
Apple worked closely with its “carrier partners in India to provide iPhone users with the best 5G experience once network validation and testing for quality and performance are complete.”
As India rolls out 5G in phases starting with major metropolitan areas, smartphone players are working to make 5G available on their devices.
Apple conducts extensive testing with carrier partners to ensure a great experience for iPhone users.
iPhone offers users super-fast downloads and uploads, better streaming, and real-time connectivity with 5G to help them stay connected, share, and enjoy content.
Support for 5G on iPhone has now expanded to more than 250 carrier partners in more than 70 markets around the world, with expanded support for standalone networks.
