In India, 5G is being rolled out in phases. Several cities in India have the latest mobile network, including Mumbai, Delhi, Varanasi, and Hyderabad. In March 2024, Airtel and Jio will be able to offer complete pan-India coverage.

Even though the phone is compatible with the 5G network, OEMs will have to push a software update to enable 5G access. Various brands, including Samsung, Realme, Xiaomi, Vivo, iQOO, OPPO, and more, are already listed as supported 5G handsets by Airtel. Android is covered here, but what about iPhones? It’s not all good news.

After testing and validating the devices for 5G, Apple plans to release a 5G update for its iPhones by December. 5G is supported by iPhones above iPhone 12.

By December, Apple iPhones will be able to support 5G. Support will be rolled out after testing and validation. According to the report, Apple and Airtel will meet this week to discuss the rollout timeline. According to the report, Apple will meet with India’s second-largest telco to determine why the delay occurred and when it will release the updates for iPhone users to enjoy 5G services.
