Apple has rolled out a new iOS update for 5G enabled iPhones starting from iPhone 12, and for those who install iOS 14.5. Recent iPhone models, starting with XS Max and XR give people the ability to load two phone numbers at once, which can be useful for people with separate work and personal lines. Earlier, doing so on an iPhone 12 would lock the user into LTE service, even if one is all set up and ready to go with 5G. Now, iPhone users can get 5G connectivity on both the lines.
Apple has also improved the iPhone 12s ‘ Smart Data Mode’. A hidden option in the ‘Cellular’ section of the ‘Settings’ menu that makes the phone automatically switch between 5G and LTE depending on which one has better service at a time. With iOS 14.5 it should provide better battery life and performance than before.
