Part 2: How to Get 5G on iPhone?

Follow the steps below to get 5G on your iPhone:

Step 1: On your iPhone 12/12 mini/12 Pro/12 Pro Max, open Settings and tap Cellular.

Step 2: Select Cellular Data Options > Voice & Data.

Step 3: Select 5G On or 5G Auto.

Note: You will see three options under the Voice & Data screen; here's what they mean:

  • 5G Auto: This default 5G network option enables the Smart Data mode on your iPhone. This mode will automatically switch from 5G to 4G when 5G speeds don't provide a significantly better experience. It helps save battery life.
  • 5G On: With this mode on, your phone always uses 5G, reducing the battery life.
  • LTE: Your phone uses LTE network only even when 5G is available.

Part 3: Apple's Future iPhone 5G Lineup

Rumor suggests that 2021 5G iPhone lineup coming in September also includes "mini," "Pro," and "Pro Max" variants. There may not be changes in the major design, but we expect to see an improved camera, a faster A15 processor, increased battery life, etc.

In terms of the 5G support, the next-gen iPhone appears to come with a Qualcomm X60 5G modem. With this new 5G chip and a greater battery capacity, the new iPhone can deliver greater 5G performance and last longer when connected to 5G networks.

Therefore, if you want to upgrade from an iPhone 11 to a 5G-supported iPhone and don't mind waiting, the upcoming iPhone 13 (or iPhone 12S) seems to be a better upgrade than iPhone 12.
