The wait to get 5G on their phones is over for Apple iPhone users as the tech giant has released iOS 16.2 beta that will allow users to choose the 5G option for the newly launched iPhone 14, iPhone 13, and iPhone 12. Telecom operators Bharti Airtel and Reliance Jio introduced a 5G network in big cities.
Apple launched the iOS 16 5G beta software program earlier this week. This means that Airtel and Jio customers can now enjoy super-fast next-generation 5G network services. iPhone 14, iPhone 13, iPhone 12, and iPhone SE (3rd generation) users can experience 5G as part of Apple’s iOS 16 beta software program before it becomes publicly available in December.
Some of the leading smartphone manufacturers like Samsung, Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo have already announced support for 5G streaming and now iPhone (beta) users in the country can use 5G on their phones. We bring you a step-by-step guide on how to activate the iOS beta on supported Apple iPhone models and use the 5G network.
Here’s how iPhone users can activate 5G on their phones
Check if you are part of the beta and if not, you need to register for the public beta program from the company’s official website. Please note that opting for the beta program may mean getting a few buds in addition to the 5G experience.
Once you’re signed up, go to Settings > General > Software Update and click Software Update to check for an update.
Click on download and install the software update. (Note: Please backup your files and all data before installing any beta version on iOS).
After updating your phone to iOS 16.2 beta, which is the latest version of iOS that enables 5G, check if a 5G network is available in your area.
To check if 5G is available in your area, go to Settings > Mobile data > Mobile data option > Voice & data and select a 5G network (if available).
