5G networks have already started mushrooming in India and a majority of smartphones already support the networks from Airtel NSA 5G and Jio SA 5G. Sadly, the Apple iPhones are yet to support the 5G networks in India and Apple had said a few weeks ago that the 5G update will come by December 2022. Now, we have an update on this front – Apple will start testing the iOS 16 update that brings the 5G network support for the Apple devices.

In a statement to The Indian Express from the company, it is said that the iOS 16.2 beta build is already under testing and will be released to the beta channel next year. With the update installed, the supported iPhones will support both Airtel 5G networks and Jio 5G networks. Apple had earlier said that it will test 5G support on iPhones on the Vodafone Idea 5G network.
