iPhone users in India should wait nearly 3 months to use 5G

Even though Apple smartphones support the cellular option, iPhones are yet to get 5G connectivity. Once Apple updates the software, its 5G network would come to compatible iPhones. The company has provided a timeline and said the Over the Air update would be initiated in December this year. By then, Airtel 5G may also expand to 8 cities where it is rolling out now. 

The company’s statement reads, “We are working with our carrier partners in India to bring the best 5G experience to iPhone users as soon as network validation and testing for quality and performance is completed. 5G will be enabled through a software update and will start rolling out to iPhone users in December. Apple introduced 5G connectivity on iPhone 12 and above. 

At present, Airtel and Jio are testing 5G services in select cities. Jio has not officially clarified whether iPhones need to push out an update to support its 5G services. The department of telecommunications under the Ministry of Communications has released a memo inviting thirty participants. 

In the meeting, the government will ask participants, which include phone makers, chip maker, electronics manufacturing service providers and many industry associations, for updates related to the 5G roll outs in India. The government has also invited Apple to the meeting to get an update about the 5G connection on iPhones. Announcing a list of smartphones awaiting a software update to support its 5G services, Airtel updated its website, days after officially launching 5G in India.
