It appears that the Cupertino headquartered technology firm, Apple has finally caught up with India’s fifth generation leap of smartphone connectivity. 

Apple Rolls Out 5G Capabilities For These iPhone Users In India (Check Full List)

Now Access 5G On Apple iPhone

The iPhone maker announced on Tuesday that it has enabled 5G cellular support for new iPhone 14, iPhone 13, iPhone SE and iPhone 12 lineups in India.

Further, the iPhone has extended its support for 5G connection on its iPhone 12 devices or later, with Reliance Jio and Airtel cellular connections. 

So far, the firm has identified both Airtel and Reliance Jio as its “carrier partners” in India. 

How Does It Work?

In order to use this service, the users need to update their device to iOS 16.2. 

Besides this, the update has several other features including improved encryption for iCloud data, live activities on the Home Screen, and a new karaoke feature for Apple Music.

Prior to this, Apple enabled 5G in India in the iOS 16 Beta software programme week for a selected few iPhone users in the country on a trial basis last month. 

During that time, only a selected few users with Airtel and Reliance Jio connections were able to try out the 5G.

It seems that Apple worked closely with its “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”.

Apple In Support With 5G Rollout In India 

As we know that India is rolling out 5G in a phased manner, starting with key metro cities. 

Playing their part, several smartphone majors such as Apple, Samsung and Oneplus-owner BBK Electronics, are working towards ensuring the availability of 5G on their devices.

According to Apple, iPhone users will be able to experience “super-fast downloads and uploads, better streaming, and real-time connectivity with 5G to help them stay in touch, share, and enjoy the content”.

With an expanded support for standalone networks, the support for 5G on iPhone has now extended to over 250 carrier partners in over 70 markets around the world.

This move represents that an early adoption of 5G in India is underway as more and more smartphone majors prioritize software upgrades.
