With the debut of their services in a few places, Airtel and Jio have made 5G accessible in India. Although most companies have not yet made their handsets compatible with 5G networks in India, Apple has been working with network operators to evaluate the performance of 5G networks on several iPhone models there. 5G offers 10x faster speeds than a 4G network.

Up to the iPhone 12 series, Apple's earlier iPhone devices are compatible with India's 5G networks. And all of these gadgets will soon support 5G thanks to a fresh update from Apple.

Therefore, all Apple needs to do to enable 5G for its iPhone models in India is to issue an iOS 16 update. And that's precisely what Apple is doing right now with the publication of the iOS 16.2 beta, which should be available to the general public by the end of the month. How can one tell if their iPhone model is compatible with India's 5G networks and how does one turn on the feature?
