We all know Airtel and Jio released and are currently testing 5G services across selected cities in India. But iPhones are yet to get the 5G connectivity. It requires updates on the software and reportedly a timeline is being offered for the same. It will get accomplished in December 2022. 


Selected cities to get Airtel 5G services include Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Nagpur, Varanasi and Siliguri. Apple is currently working with the partners in India to bring the best 5G experience to the iPhone users after the testing for quality and performance. 


The software will enable the iPhone users to get the 5G services latest by December. The connectivity was introduced on iPhone 12 and above models.
