iOS 16.2 Public Beta Will Enable 5G On iPhones In India

Apple has confirmed that iOS 16.2 will enable 5G support for compatible iPhones in India for the first time. The update is currently in beta and Apple has confirmed that the next beta release will add the functionality.

Apple had previously said that it was working to add support for 5G in the Indian market with carriers including Airtel and Jio on board, adding that it would happen “as soon as network validation and testing for quality and performance is completed.”

But this is the first time that it has given a rough timescale for when that will happen, with the company telling the Indian Express that the next beta is the one that will bring 5G support.

The first iOS 16.2 beta was released to developers and public beta testers last week and has already been pegged for a mid-December release to the public.

That means that those in India probably still have around six weeks to wait before they can enjoy super-fast cellular data, assuming the live in a supported area, that is.

Alongside the new 5G support for India, the iOS 16.2 update will include a revamped Home architecture as well as the first release of the Freeform app that was announced during WWDC in June. The release will also coincide with new iPadOS and macOS updates, too.
