Airtel 5G: How to Activate
The company said users will be able to access 5G services using their existing 4G SIM cards and not need to buy a new SIM.
To activate 5G Plus services on their smartphone, users must open the “Settings” app. Then select “Mobile Network”. Users must select the SIM they want to activate 5G. From here the “Preferred Network Type” option is available. Users must now select the 5G network type by pressing If 5G is indeed available in their area, the status bar will display the 5G symbol in the next few minutes. To see the 5G symbol, turn off Wi-Fi and turn on mobile data.
iPhone 5G update in India
To make 5G services available on supported iPhones, Apple has started rolling out its iOS 16.2 software update. The update adds several new and improved capabilities to the iPhones along with 5G connectivity. The update is available for iPhones running iOS 16 — including iPhone 8 and later — and iPhone SE (3rd generation).
After completing the 5G spectrum auction in India in August 2022, Prime Minister Narendra Modi officially launched 5G services on October 1. Only two of India’s three major telecom companies are now offering 5G services. Airtel was the first company to commercially use non-standalone access (NSA) technology. On the other hand, Jio is currently the only Indian operator using the 700 MHz band and has chosen to deploy 5G Independent Access (SA) (5G low-band spectrum).
