Apple iPhones to Get 5G-Related Software Update By December 

The Apple iPhone 12 series and above, and  iPhone SE (3rd generation) are 5G-ready.

Apple will start rolling out the software update needed to enable 5G services in iPhones in December.

The announcement came ahead of the meeting, scheduled for Wednesday, between the officials of the Department of Telecommunications (DoT).

We are working with our carrier partners in India to bring the best 5G experience to iPhone users.

"As soon as network validation and testing for quality and performance is completed," Apple said in a statement.

Most of the 5G smartphones in the premium segment, including Apple, Samsung, and OnePlus, currently lack software support for the network.

On Wednesday, Samsung announced that it would  bring in the updates required to access 5G services in all their smartphones by November-end.

Apple is likely in the process and, thus, it is believed that iPhone will get the software update in December.

While India launched the 5G services on October  1, the smartphone makers will still have to monitor the bugs and incorporate fixes before rolling out 5G-related software updates.
